New Business Process for Zero Admin

Client Request for Market Data

Client requests Exchange data as they do today. We are releasing a form to make this process vastly simpler, and initially this will be used between the TMX and the Client. In the future, the Vendors will also use this form.

Quarterly Reconciliation

1) Every quarter, client provides to TMX a current Audit Trail Report.

2) TMX prepares a reconciliation report.

3) TMX Datafeed Analyst prepares a new Exhibit A (Internal Distribution) or new Exhibit A (Delayed Market Data).

4) Client signs new Exhibit A.

5) TMX sends "Clearance Letter" to client.

6) Repeat Reconciliation every three months.
