INTERACTIVE DATA COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF ASSETS COMPRISING XCITEK’S MARKET DATA BUSINESS

Interactive Data Corporation (NYSE: IDC), a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related services to financial institutions, active traders and individual investors, today announced the closing of its acquisition of the assets comprising the market data division of Xcitek LLC, as well as the market data assets of its affiliate Xcitax LLC, for $25.3 million in cash.

Xcitek’s market data business provides a broad range of North American corporate actions data, including reorganization information, as well as valuable cost basis and class action data. Xcitek provides this content to over 2,000 financial institutions worldwide through a variety of delivery platforms including electronic datafeed services, proprietary web-based offerings and an extensive network of redistributors. Xcitek’s operations will remain based in New York City and will be integrated into Interactive Data’s Pricing and Reference Data business. As part of the initial integration efforts, Xcitek’s services will be marketed as Interactive Data Xcitek.

The acquisition does not include XcitekSolutionsPlus, LLC (XSP), a software company affiliated with Xcitek LLC nor does it include Xcitek Consulting Services Inc. (XCS), both of which will continue to operate as independent entities.
