Latency Data for BATS U.S. Equities Exchanges Available May 20

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- BATS Global Markets (BATS), a global operator of securities and derivatives markets, today announced the launch of the BATS Multicast Latency Feed, becoming the first exchange to offer a latency feed directly to its members.

The BATS Multicast Latency Feed, which will be available tomorrow to BATS BZX and BYX Exchange members, provides latency statistics and allows members to monitor Matching Engine unit level performance statistics, including Order-to-Quote latency. The feed utilizes a low-latency, low-bandwidth multicast format for optimal performance.

"We are pleased to add the BATS Multicast Latency Feed to our growing suite of data products for our U.S. equities exchanges. We look forward to also offering it to our European and U.S. Options customers later this year," said Chris Isaacson, chief operating officer of the BATS Exchanges. "Innovation is at the core of BATS and we remain committed to developing unique, practical products and tools that increase market transparency while helping investors."

The BATS Multicast Latency Feed is free to members of the BATS Exchanges until Oct. 1, 2011. Pricing effective after Oct. 1, 2011, is yet to be determined and will be subject to SEC approval.
