tinue their successful cooperation in the derivatives market: The two partners have renewed the
contract for their joint derivatives market Eurex ahead of time for another 10 years until the end of
2014. The distribution of transaction fees and expenditure and thus profits of the world's largest
derivatives exchange was revised and set at 85 percent for Deutsche BÃ¶rse and 15 percent for
SWX Swiss Exchange. Currently, Deutsche BÃ¶rse receives 80 percent of the proceeds, and
SWX 20 percent. These ratios reflect the two partners' contribution to the joint venture. The
formal participating interests will remain at 50 percent each. The supervisory board of Eurex will
be enlarged from nine to twelve members and Deutsche BÃ¶rse will have seven representatives.
"We are continuing our successful strategic alliance knowing that together we can further rein-
force our position as the world's most successful derivatives exchange in an international com-
petitive environment," Deutsche BÃ¶rse and SWX Swiss Exchange said.
