Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters Launches Elektron Direct Feed

New hardware accelerated, software optimized direct feed helps firms access
cost-effective and reliable market data

NEW YORK, August 4, 2014 -
Thomson Reuters today announced the launch of its new direct feed service.
Elektron Direct Feed provides customers with high-performance access to
real-time market data sourced directly from individual trading venues in a
standardized, reliable and flexible format.

Firms focused on smart order routing and algorithmic trading rely on
consistently high-performance, low-latency market data to route trades to the
venue offering best execution. These firms also require market data in a
standardized format to ensure full price transparency across venues.

Elektron Direct Feed is a hybrid solution offering hardware acceleration to
achieve low latency and software optimization for recovery and static data
mapping. This approach ensures customers receive a fast and robust real-time
data feed which can be installed and integrated into their applications
quickly and easily. Its use of configurable, multicast FPGA technology for
real-time data processing also means that multiple direct feeds can be
supported on a single server, reducing a firm's infrastructure and operating
costs.

Covering US cash equities initially, Elektron Direct Feed will deliver a
standardised, full tick, full depth of book solution. Over the course of
2014 and 2015, Elektron Direct Feed will supply data from US futures and
options exchanges as well as expand its coverage of European venues.

"The launch of Elektron Direct Feed further demonstrates our commitment to
offering our customers best in class data solutions," said Mike Powell,
managing director for enterprise capabilities, Financial&Risk, at Thomson
Reuters. "Elektron Direct Feed has been designed for those customers for
whom speed and agility are key components of their trading strategies as they
seek out the best prices for their clients."

Elektron Direct Feed uses FPGA technology fromCeloxica. This partnership
brings together data delivery expertise from Thomson Reuters with specialist
hardware acceleration technology from Celoxica. As a leading provider of
products using FPGA-based architectures, Celoxica has been at the forefront
of advanced computing technologies for over ten years.

Thomson Reuters also offers a consolidated feed, Elektron Real Time, which
together with Elektron Direct Feed allows it to provide customers with
real-time data in the format and latency best suited to their trading needs.
