KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP, a U.S. dynamic financial services firm providing market access and trade execution services, today celebrated its transfer from Nasdaq to NYSE (ticker symbol: KCG) and its simultaneous cross-listing on NYSE Euronext in Paris (ticker symbol: KCG).

KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP used the streamlined, cost-effective Fast Path process[1] to expand its operations in Europe, making it the first company to take advantage of this listing procedure in connection with its transfer on the NYSE since it was made available by NYSE Euronext in 2008.

Providing access to major asset classes, global equities, fixed income, foreign exchange, futures and options, KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP is today the leading source of off-exchange liquidity in U.S. equities. The admission of KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP on NYSE Euronext in Paris took place following the direct listing of the 155,876,838 existing shares.

The admission and issue price of KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP shares on NYSE Euronext in Paris was set at €11.42 each, based on the closing price of its shares on 24 May 2010 converted into Euros on the basis of EUR/USD exchange rate of the same trading day. The company's capitalization on the day of admission amounted to €1.78 billion.

KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP's admission is the first cross-listing from an investment services company and the 51st company to be listed on our markets in the U.S. and in Europe this year.

"We look forward to helping KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP attract international investor awareness and recognition through its transfer from Nasdaq to NYSE and its simultaneous cross-listing on our European market" commented Ronald Kent, Group Executive Vice President and Head of International Listings at NYSE Euronext. "Thanks to our family of market centers, KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP will benefit from an outstanding visibility platform and the most diverse array of services around the globe."

Thomas M. Joyce, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, KNIGHT CAPITAL GROUP, said "It's an exciting day for KNIGHT. We are actively expanding capabilities and adding new clients in Europe. Cross-listing on NYSE Euronext in Paris reflects our intention to be a full participant in the European capital markets."
