BATS Global Markets today announces the conclusion of two separate investigations into the development of order types; one relating to BATS and the other relating to Direct Edge. With regards to BATS, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has concluded its investigation with no action taken, and we are pleased to have this matter formally closed. With respect to Direct Edge, the SEC is taking an enforcement action against the legacy Direct Edge exchanges with respect to functionality that was implemented prior to the acquisition by BATS. We have agreed to enter into a settlement agreement with the SEC, without admitting or denying the allegations, in order to put this matter behind us. The SEC did not allege that there was anything inherently inappropriate about order type functionality at Direct Edge. Rather, the SEC alleged that Direct Edges price sliding functionality was not completely and accurately disclosed in Direct Edges rules. We have cooperated with the SEC staff throughout both investigations, and want to thank the staff for their thoughtful consideration and discussion of the relevant facts and policy issues. BATS will hold a customer-only call Tuesday January 13, 2015, at 11 a.m. ET under the following coordinates. We ask that all other audiences reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
