London Stock Exchange Group plc (the "Company" or "LSEG") notes the further press speculation linking the Company with a potential acquisition of Russell.

LSEG confirms that, further to the announcement on 13 May 2014, it has now entered into exclusive discussions with The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, the parent company of Russell.

Discussions remain on-going and there can be no certainty that a transaction will be forthcoming.

A further announcement will be made in due course as appropriate.
