    --  Through August 30, ICE's CDS clearing houses have cleared $44 trillion
        in gross notional value on a cumulative basis across 1.4 million trades
        with open interest of $1.4 trillion. ICE Clear Credit has cleared $26
        trillion in CDS resulting in open interest of $803 billion. ICE Clear
        Europe has cleared EUR13 trillion ($17 trillion) in CDS resulting in
        EUR484 billion ($641 billion) of open interest. Buy-side clearing of CDS
        totaled $2.1 trillion since the launch of client clearing at ICE Clear
        Credit in December of 2009. ICE lists approximately 400 CDS instruments
        for clearing. A complete summary of CDS clearing can be found at:

Note: As of October 15, 2012, ICE transitioned all of the open interest in OTC cleared energy swaps contracts to futures contracts. All futures volumes in the tables above have been adjusted to treat, on a pro forma basis, the OTC cleared energy swaps contracts as futures contracts for all periods prior to October 2012.

RPC is calculated by dividing transaction revenues by contract volume, and may vary based on pricing, customer and product mix.
