The Compensation Committee is comprised solely of directors who meet NYSE independence requirements, meet the requirements for a “Nonemployee Director” under the Exchange Act, and meet the requirements for an “outside director” under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). The Compensation Committee:

 

   

reviews and approves corporate goals and objectives relevant to the compensation of our executive officers, including our Chief Executive Officer;

 

   

evaluates our Chief Executive Officer’s performance and sets his compensation based on this evaluation;

 

   

approves, in consultation with our Chief Executive Officer, the compensation of our officers who are appointed by our Board of Directors;

 

   

reviews and approves option grants, bonus payments and stock awards;

 

   

exercises general oversight over our benefit plans and evaluates any proposed new retirement or executive benefit plans; and

 

   

reviews and approves any severance or similar termination payments proposed to any current or former executive officers.

The Compensation Committee is governed by a written Compensation Committee Charter approved by our Board of Directors. We amended our Compensation Committee Charter in May 2008. The charter is available on our website at www.theice.com. We will also provide a printed copy of the charter to stockholders upon request.

The members of the Compensation Committee are Messrs. Tese (Chairperson), Crisp and Reid.
