Tullett Prebon plc

Update on the proposed acquisition of

ICAP's global hybrid voice broking and information business


Tullett Prebon plc ("Tullett Prebon") is pleased that the Competition and Markets Authority (the "CMA") has today announced that it has accepted the undertakings proposed by ICAP plc ("ICAP") and Tullett Prebon to divest ICAP's London-based EMEA oil desks to INTL FCStone Limited. As a result, the CMA will not refer Tullett Prebon's proposed acquisition of the global hybrid voice broking and information business of ICAP (the "Transaction") to an in-depth Phase 2 merger investigation and therefore the Transaction has been cleared by the CMA.

Completion of the Transaction remains subject to approval by various regulatory bodies including the FCA and satisfaction of other closing conditions.

Tullett Prebon remains confident that the Transaction is on track to close in 2016.
