BATS Global Markets Reports October Volume; Sets Monthly U.S. Equities Market Share Record With 13%

KANSAS CITY, Mo., and LONDON, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — BATS Global Markets (BATS), a leading operator of securities markets in the U.S. and Europe, today reported October U.S. equities market share of 13.0%, a new record for the company. In Europe, BATS Chi-X Europe reported market share of 24.8%, maintaining its position as the largest equity market in Europe during 2012.

Joe Ratterman, president and chief executive, commented: “I am excited about the strong performance across all of our markets, particularly in U.S. equities where in October we surpassed 13% market share for the first time in our seven-year history. We attribute our continued market share growth to our strong market quality, price improvement metrics, and diverse membership base, which we believe are vital to a growing and healthy marketplace.

“In Europe, BATS Chi-X Europe is bringing new products and services to market participants, most recently with a new market data license covering our European trade data for use in real-time index calculations. The introduction of this new license highlights an information gap in the European markets where exchange-owned benchmarks do not yet include our price informing data.

Incorporating our trade data in Europe’s major benchmarks will produce a more complete picture of today’s market in which significant amount of intraday trading occurs on BATS Chi-X Europe.

“We’re also pleased to be expanding the accessibility of our risk management tools to our customers in the U.S. and Europe, enabling our customers to more effectively mitigate risk with a simple, secure Web interface. We also remain engaged with the industry in the U.S. and Europe on the potential development of exchange-specific or market-wide risk controls that could improve the functioning and investor confidence of our markets,” he concluded.

BATS operates two stock exchanges in the U.S. – the BATS BZX Exchange and BATS BYX Exchange (the BATS Exchanges); BATS Options, a U.S. equity options market; and BATS Chi-X Europe, which runs an FSA-authorized multilateral trading facility.
