Based on our successful partnership in supporting the evolution the CDS space, I want to thank Sunil for his contribution to our achievements over the past year. His industry insights have been invaluable as ICE has established its leadership position in the CDS markets. On behalf of the ICE team, I want to express our appreciation to both John and Sunil for their efforts in integrating Creditex's business, and wish them the very best in their future endeavors."

Said Hirani: "Jeff and I have known each other for many years. We were both convinced that a merger of our companies would combine the innovation and expertise necessary to address the challenges that faced the CDS marketplace. With the integration of the businesses largely complete, a leadership position in CDS clearing established, and the continuity provided by the appointments of Grant and Sophia, it has allowed me to move on to pursue other interests with entrepreneurial ventures. I look forward to continuing my close relationship with Jeff and ICE, and will provide whatever support I can to enable their continued success."
