Proxy Advisory Company Confirms Positive Recommendation of the TMX-LSEG Merger Proposal

TMX Group BLUE proxies must be received by 5:00 p.m. today

TORONTO, June 28, 2011 /CNW/ - TMX Group Inc. today announced that Glass, Lewis & Co., LLC, a leading independent governance analysis and proxy voting firm, has reconfirmed its recommendation that TMX Group shareholders vote in favour of TMX Group's proposed merger with London Stock Exchange Group plc (LSEG).  The report, which was initially released on June 16, 2011, was updated to reflect recent amendments to the TMX-LSEG agreed merger and the Maple Acquisition Group Corporation unilateral offer.

On June 23, 2011, the TMX-LSEG merger also received a positive recommendation from Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (ISS), another leading independent proxy voting and corporate governance advisory firm.

"TMX Group's merger with London Stock Exchange Group creates an international exchange operator with a strong financial position, ready for growth," said Tom Kloet, Chief Executive Officer, TMX Group.  "We are very pleased that two highly respected independent firms strongly agree with our plans and believe that the merger is in the best interests of TMX shareholders."

TMX Group will hold its Annual and Special Meeting of shareholders to approve the merger and other resolutions on June 30, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. (ET).  The meeting will be held at the Design Exchange, 234 Bay Street, Toronto.  Please visit www.tmx.com/merger for information about the merger.

TMX Group BLUE proxies must be received no later than TODAY at 5:00 p.m. (ET).  Shareholders who have already voted using the dissident proxy have the right to change their vote by executing and submitting the BLUE form of proxy; it is the later-dated proxy that will be counted.  Shareholders who require assistance in voting their proxies may direct their inquiries to TMX Group's proxy solicitation agent, Phoenix Advisory Partners, 1-866-793-5697 or inquiries@phoenixadvisorypartners.com.

If TMX Group shareholders approve the merger with LSEG at that meeting, the Maple offer would not, according to its terms, proceed as it is conditional on TMX Group shareholders rejecting the merger.
