Swiss financial market infrastructure provider announces gratifying six-month results and new brand SIX Group

Zurich/Switzerland. In the first six months of 2008, Swiss Financial Market Services AG significantly expanded its business activities versus the comparable prior-year period. Higher revenues from the securities services, financial information and payment transactions business fields offset the decline in securities trading activity. Within the framework of its strategy work and integration activities, the Group has developed a new brand strategy. In future, Swiss Financial Market Services AG will operate under the name SIX Group AG. This umbrella brand stands for Swiss Infrastructure and Exchange. The company also plans to introduce substantial fee reductions in the areas of securities trading and related services. As successor to departing Board member Dr. Martin Sieg Castagnola, Dr. Philipp Halbherr, Head of Investment Banking and Member of the Executive Board, Z├╝rcher Kantonalbank, will be proposed as representative of the cantonal banks on the Board of Directors.
