Deutsche Börse and Malta Stock Exchange extend trading technology agreement

The Malta Stock Exchange is to continue its use of Deutsche Börse trading
technology. The two stock exchanges have extended their agreement
retroactively from 1 January 2017, for another five years, until 31 December 2021. In
this context, the Malta Stock Exchange has also extended its trading hours.
Daily trading in a number of products is now possible from 9.00 a.m. to 3.30 p.m.

“Deutsche Börse offers extremely reliable and high-performance trading
technology. The partnership in place since 2012 has proven successful for
the Malta Stock Exchange, which is why we decided to tackle future
technological changes and challenges facing the financial sector jointly with Deutsche
Börse again,” commented Simon Zammit, Malta Stock Exchange CEO.

“We are pleased that the Malta Stock Exchange has chosen Deutsche Börse’s
IT services and technology solutions. Trading participants will continue to
benefit from our continually improved cash market technology as well as
from a large international network of market participants,” commented Holger
Wohlenberg, Managing Director of Deutsche Börse Market Data + Services.

The agreement ensures that the Malta Stock Exchange will continue to
operate its cash market with highly efficient technology in the future. The two
parties have thus agreed that all future modifications or updates to Deutsche
Börse’s trading infrastructure will also be introduced on the Malta Stock Exchange.
