On October 1, 2007, we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire BSX for $61.0 million in cash. Consummation of the BSX acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and approvals. The BSX acquisition will provide us with an additional license for trading both equities and options and a clearing license. The acquisition of BSX is expected to close in the first half of 2008. After the close of the BSX acquisition, BSXs current operations will be discontinued and will not be integrated into our current operations.
