Our U.S. OPTION BUSINESS has PERFORMED THE BEST

of any of our transaction businesses over the past

several years. U.S. option REVENUES INCREASED 10% Y-O-Y

in 4Q12, driven by improved revenue capture and increased market share. This was attributed in part to our new BX Options market gaining share and alternative trading venues like NASDAQ Options Market (NOM) gaining share.

One of the drivers that made our model so succesful over the past few years is

the diversity of our business. CORPORATE SOLUTIONS LED THE WAY.

This effort began six years ago and was built from the ground up to provide

companies with the tools and services necessary to become better public entities.

In 2012 we continued to see more momentum in our market data business.
