KBW Announces That Proposed Member & Share Changes To KBW Capital Markets Index (KSXSM) Have Been Withdrawn

Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc., a full-service, boutique investment bank and broker-dealer that specializes in the financial services sector, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Stifel Financial Corp. (NYSE:SF), announces the following changes:

The member change that was anticipated to be effective prior to the opening of business on Monday, November 4, 2013, will now occur at a later date due to the delayed closing of the NYSE Euronext (NYSE: NYX) acquisition by IntercontinentalExchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE). The proposed member change is included below for reference and will occur once the NYX/ICE acquisition closing has a firm closing date.

WITHDRAWN: KBW Capital Markets Index (Index Ticker: KSX SM , ETF Ticker: KBWC SM )
  • Removing NYSE Euronext (NYSE: NYX), due to the expected closing of the acquisition by IntercontinentalExchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE); and
  • Replacing NYX with BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE: BLK).

In addition, the anticipated change in shares of ICE, a member of the KSX, will not occur prior to the open of business on Monday, November 4, 2013 as originally announced. The increase in ICE shares is acquisition dependent and will occur when the NYX/ICE acquisition closes.

The KBW indices have ten tradable exchange-traded funds licensed: KBW Bank Index (Index Ticker: BKX SM, ETF Ticker: KBWB SM); KBW Capital Markets Index (Index Ticker: KSX SM, ETF Ticker: KBWC SM); KBW Insurance Index (Index Ticker: KIX SM, ETF Ticker: KBWI SM); KBW Regional Banking Index (Index Ticker: KRX SM, ETF Ticker: KBWR SM, KRS SM, KRU SM); KBW Financial Sector Dividend Yield Index (Index Ticker: KDX SM, ETF Ticker: KBWD SM); KBW Premium Yield Equity REIT Index (Index Ticker: KYX SM, ETF Ticker: KBWY SM); KBW Property and Casualty Insurance Index (Index Ticker: KPX SM, ETF Ticker: KBWP SM); and KBW Global (Ex.
