Operationally, we advanced the company's strategic imperatives and initiated the CDS and Alpha integrations.  As we enter the final weeks of 2012, we remain focused on the execution of our business strategy and will enter 2013 with a strong and more globally competitive business focused on future growth."Michael Ptasznik, Chief Financial Officer of TMX Group said: "This quarter's financial report represents only two months of operating results for TMX Group Inc., CDS and Alpha.  As noted, slower capital markets activity and macroeconomic conditions impacted our operating and financial results in the quarter.  Integration plans are now in place across the businesses and we are moving forward with notifications to impacted employees as well as technology and back-office integration.  We remain committed to achieving our goal of approximately $20.0 million in run-rate cost-synergies in the first quarter of 2014."Important InformationThe financial statements for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, are TMX Group's first financial statements that reflect its completion of the two-step acquisition of TMX Group Inc. on September 14, 2012 (the Maple Acquisition) and the acquisitions of The Canadian Depository for Securities Limited (CDS) and Alpha Trading Systems Inc. and Alpha Trading Systems Limited Partnership (collectively, Alpha) on August 1, 2012 (collectively, the Maple Transaction)  The TMX Group financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board, for the preparation of interim financial statements, and are in compliance with IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting. They include the operating results of TMX Group Inc., CDS and Alpha from August 1, 2012 and comparative financial statements for TMX Group Inc. for and as at the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2011, as applicable.Maple Group Acquisition Corporation (or Maple, renamed TMX Group Limited) was a special acquisition corporation and the most significant aspect of the Maple Transaction was the purchase of TMX Group Inc., which was the publicly traded company. The approach taken in this press release is intended to provide readers with a more complete view of the operating performance and cash flows of TMX Group. Our discussion of revenue, operating expenses, net income attributable to non-controlling interests and cash flows for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012 includes the operating results of TMX Group Inc. from July 1, 2012 and January 1, 2012, respectively, along with those of CDS and Alpha from August 1, 2012. These measures are compared with TMX Group Inc. for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. For the most part, the operational comparison has been prepared as if TMX Group Inc. acquired CDS and Alpha on August 1, 2012. Management believes that this is the most meaningful presentation for the purpose of discussion of our results of operations.Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 Compared With Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011The information in the chart below reflects the financial statements of TMX Group Limited for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, including the operating results of TMX Group Inc., CDS and Alpha and their respective subsidiaries from August 1, 2012. The comparative financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 include only the accounts of TMX Group Limited.As noted above, TMX Group Limited was formed solely for the purpose of pursuing the Maple Acquisition along with the acquisitions of CDS and Alpha (collectively the CDS and Alpha Acquisitions, individually the CDS Acquisition and the Alpha Acquisition). Prior to the completion of the CDS and Alpha Acquisitions on August 1, 2012 and the take up of 80% of the common shares of TMX Group Inc. on July 31, 2012 under the Maple offer, it had no material assets and no history of earnings and had not commenced commercial operations. Management believes that the required historical information for TMX Group Limited in this table and contained in the financial statements will be of limited use to investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating the operating performance and cash flows of our company for the comparative periods.Summary of Financial Information(in millions of dollars, except per share amounts) Q3/12Q3/11$ Increase/ (decrease)Revenue$113.4-$113.4Operating expenses$73.8-$73.8Net income (loss) attributable to TMX Group shareholders$15.3($13.3)$28.6Earnings (loss) per sharev:      Basic $0.53$(109.79)$110.32 Diluted$0.53$(109.79)$110.32Cash flows from (used in) operating activities($70.7)($5.0)($65.7)(in millions of dollars, except per share amounts) Nine Months Ended  Sept. 30/12Sept. 30/11$ Increase/ (decrease)Revenue$113.4-$113.4Operating expenses$73.8-$73.8Net income (loss) attributable to TMX Group shareholders($17.5)($27.1)$9.6Earnings (loss) per sharev:      Basic ($1.74)($379.55)$377.81 Diluted($1.74)($379.55)$377.81Cash flows from (used in) operating activities($105.9)($5.0)($100.9)_______________________________ v Earnings (loss) per share information is based on net income attributable to TMX Group shareholders.Calculation of earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share for Q3/12Earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share are based on the basic and diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding in Q3/12. The basic and diluted weighted average number of common shares reflects the common shares and options outstanding in TMX Group Limited during Q3/12, which were as follows:  Common shares outstanding in Q3/12 Dates        Common shares outstanding(July 1-July 16, 2012)        835,702(July 17-July 31, 2012)        827,980(Aug 1-Sept 13, 2012)        38,786,006(Sept 14-Sept 30, 2012)        53,725,970  Weighted average number of basic common shares outstanding    28,757,790  Options outstanding in Q3/12 Dates        Options outstanding  (July 1- Aug 9, 2012)        0(Aug 10-Sept 30, 2012)        1,103,618  Weighted average number of diluted common shares outstanding   28,816,768  Calculation of earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012Earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share are based on the basic and diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding in the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The basic and diluted weighted average number of common shares reflects the common shares and options outstanding in TMX Group Limited during the nine months ended September 30, 2012, which were as follows:  Common shares outstanding in the first nine months of 2012 Dates        Common shares outstanding(Jan 1-Feb 29, 2012)        185,718(Mar 1-July 16, 2012)        835,702(July 17-July 31, 2012)       827,980(Aug 1-Sept 13, 2012)        38,786,006(Sep 14-Sept 30, 2012)       53,725,970  Weighted average number of basic common shares outstanding    10,068,669  Options outstanding in the first nine months of 2012 Dates        Options outstanding  (July 1- Aug 9, 2012)         0(Aug 10-Sept 30, 2012)        1,103,618  Weighted average number of diluted common shares outstanding   10,088,472  ADJUSTED EARNINGS PER SHAREThe terms adjusted earnings per share and adjusted diluted earnings per share do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. We present adjusted earnings per share and adjusted diluted earnings per share to indicate operating performance exclusive of Maple-related costs. Management uses these measures to assess our financial performance exclusive of these costs.Adjusted Earnings per Share Reconciliation for Q3/12 and Q3/11°The following is a reconciliation of earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share°: Q3/12Q3/11BasicDilutedBasicDilutedEarnings/(loss) per sharev$0.53$0.53$(109.79)$(109.79)Adjustment:     Adjustment related to Maple related costs, net of income tax$0.14$0.14$109.86$109.86Adjusted earnings per share°$0.67$0.67$0.07$0.07     Adjusted earnings per sharewas $0.67 per common share on a basic and diluted basis for Q3/12 after deducting 18 cents per share of amortization costs related to recent acquisitions (see Depreciation and Amortization)._________________________° See discussion under the heading Adjusted Earnings per Share.vEarnings per share information is based on net income attributable to TMX Group shareholders.Adjusted Earnings per Share Reconciliation for Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011°The following is a reconciliation of (loss) per share to adjusted earnings per share°: Nine Months Ended Sept. 30/12Sept. 30/11BasicDilutedBasicDiluted(Loss) per sharev($1.74)($1.74)($379.55)($379.55)Adjustment:$3.66$3.66$379.68$379.68 Adjustment related to Maple related costs, net of income taxAdjusted earnings per share°$1.92$1.92$0.13$0.13     Adjusted earnings per share° was $1.92 per common share on a basic and diluted basis for the first nine months of 2012 after deducting 50 cents per share of amortization costs related to recent acquisitions (see Depreciation and Amortization)._________________________° See discussion under the heading Adjusted Earnings per Share.v(Loss) per share information is based on net income attributable to TMX Group shareholders.SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION FOR THREE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 COMPARED WITH THREE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2011The table below contains TMX Group Limited revenue and operating expenses, income from operations and net income attributable to non-controlling interests which include the accounts of TMX Group Limited and the operating results of TMX Group Inc. and its subsidiaries for the period from July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, and the operating results of CDS and Alpha and their subsidiaries for the period from August 1 to September 30, 2012.  For comparison purposes in this press release, we have also included TMX Group Inc. consolidated revenue and operating expenses, income from operations and net income attributable to non-controlling interests for Q3/11.This information differs from the TMX Group Limited consolidated financial statements for the interim period ended September 30, 2012. The TMX Group Limited consolidated financial statements reflect the accounts of TMX Group Limited for the three months ended September 30, 2012, including the operating results of TMX Group Inc., Alpha, CDS and their respective subsidiaries from August 1, 2012, and only the accounts of TMX Group Limited for the comparative period of three months ended September 30, 2011.Management believes that the inclusion of the operating results of TMX Group Inc. and its subsidiaries for the entire quarter and the inclusion of the operating results of Alpha and CDS and their subsidiaries from their dates of acquisition, August 1, 2012 for the above mentioned measures is the most meaningful presentation for the purpose of discussion of the results of operations.(In millions of Canadian dollars) (Unaudited)      TMX Group LimitedJuly-Sept/12TMX Group Inc.July-Sept/12CDS/Alpha Aug-Sept/12  TMX Group Inc.

These decreases were largely offset by the inclusion of $14.8 million of revenue from CDS and $3.2 million of revenue from Alpha, effective August 1, 2012, and increased revenue from information services (including revenue from TMX Atrium, acquired July 29, 2011).Issuer services revenue(in millions of dollars) Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase/ (decrease)% increase/ (decrease)Initial listing fees$2.7$6.5($3.8)(58%)Additional listing fees$20.0$22.6($2.6)(12%)Sustaining listing fees$17.8$19.3($1.5)(8%)Other issuer services$3.3$3.2$0.13%Total$43.8$51.6($7.8)(15%)     Initial listing fees in Q3/12 were lower primarily due to a decrease in the number and value of new listings on Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange compared with Q3/11.Additional listing fees in Q3/12 decreased compared with Q3/11 primarily due to a significant decrease in the number and value of additional financings on TSX Venture Exchange and a decrease in the number of additional financings on Toronto Stock Exchange. While there was a significant increase in the value of additional listings on Toronto Stock Exchange in Q3/12 compared with Q3/11, this was driven by a number of high value transactions where the issuers paid the maximum listing fee.Issuers listed on Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange pay annual sustaining listing fees primarily based on their market capitalization at the end of the prior calendar year, subject to minimum and maximum fees. The decrease in sustaining listing fees was due to the overall lower market capitalization of listed issuers on both exchanges at the end of 2011 compared with the end of 2010. The decrease was also due to a reduction in certain fees effective January 1, 2012.Other issuer services revenue includes $0.4 million of revenue from CDS Securities Management Solutions Inc. (CDS Solutions) effective August 1, 2012._________________________*Includes TMX Group Limited results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011Trading, clearing, depository and related revenue(in millions of dollars) Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase/ (decrease)% increase/ (decrease)Cash markets trading and clearing $22.7$24.3($1.6)(7%)CDS Depository $7.9-$7.9-Derivatives markets trading and clearing $27.3$31.9($4.6)(14%)Energy markets trading and clearing$10.0$10.4($0.4)(4%)Total $67.9$66.6$1.32%     Cash MarketsCash markets equity trading revenue decreased primarily due to a 26% decrease in the volume of securities traded on Toronto Stock Exchange in Q3/12 compared with Q3/11 (18.20 billion securities in Q3/12 versus 24.57 billion securities traded in Q3/11). There was also a 22% decrease in the volume of securities traded on TSX Venture Exchange in Q3/12 compared with Q3/11 (9.12 billion securities in Q3/12 versus 11.62 billion securities in Q3/11). Cash markets revenue also included revenue from TMX Select, which was launched in July 2011 (0.46 billion securities traded in Q3/12 versus 0.49 billion securities in Q3/11).The decrease was also as a result of changes to our market making fee schedule for Toronto Stock Exchange, effective October 1, 2011, which included introducing monthly credits.Partially offsetting the decrease was the inclusion of $2.8 million of revenue from CDS clearing and settlement revenue effective August 1, 2012. CDS processed 52.44 million trades (49.77 million exchange trades) from August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.The decrease was also partially offset by the inclusion of $1.4 million of revenue from Alpha effective August 1, 2012. There were 4.85 billion securities traded on Alpha from August 1, 2012 through September 30, 2012.The decrease in overall cash markets revenue also reflected a price decrease in Shorcan Brokers Limited (Shorcan) fixed income trading that was effective April 18, 2012, a change in product mix and lower volumes in Q3/12 compared with Q3/11._________________________*Includes TMX Group Limited results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.CDS Depository CDS Depository revenue of $7.9 million is included effective August 1, 2012. CDS value on deposit at September 30, 2012 was $4,119.9 billion. In addition, CDS processed 28,646 entitlements and corporate events (such as dividend transactions and interest payments) from August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.Derivatives Markets The decrease in derivatives markets revenue reflects lower revenues from BOX Market, LLC (BOX) primarily as a result of a 21% decrease in BOX volumes (35.46 million contracts in Q3/12 versus 44.84 million contracts traded in Q3/11), partially offset by the impact of the depreciation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar in Q3/12 compared with Q3/11. A decline in volumes is consistent with what BOX's industry peers experienced. Revenue from BOX was also higher in Q3/11 due to the inclusion of Options Regulatory Fees. As of May 14, 2012, the fees charged, and the related costs incurred, by the BOX self regulatory organization (SRO) entity are not consolidated into TMX Group results.The decrease in derivatives markets revenue was also due to a decrease in trading and clearing revenue from MX and CDCC. Volumes decreased by 9% over Q3/11 (15.30 million contracts traded in Q3/12 versus 16.76 million contracts traded in Q3/11) largely due to decreased trading in the Three Month Canadian Bankers' Acceptance Futures contract, or BAX contract, index derivatives and equity options. Open interest was up 8% at September 30, 2012 compared with September 30, 2011.Derivatives markets revenue for Q3/12 also includes fees earned by CDCC for providing the clearing service with respect to fixed income repurchase and reverse repurchase agreements (REPO) transactions as well as bank fees that are charged back to Clearing Members (see Other Credit and Liquidity Facilities and Guarantee). This service was launched on February 21, 2012.Energy Markets The decrease in energy markets revenue reflects a 15% decrease in total energy volume# on NGX in Q3/12 compared with Q3/11 (3.04 million terajoules in Q3/12 compared to 3.56 million terajoules in Q3/11), primarily due to a 15% decrease in natural gas volumes.The decrease in revenue was partially offset by the impact of the depreciation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar in Q3/12 compared with Q3/11.The decrease was also partially offset by NGX having deferred less revenue in Q3/12, on a net basis, than in Q3/11 due to a decreased level of forward contracts._________________________# NGX total energy volume includes trading and clearing in natural gas, crude oil and electricity.Information services revenue(in millions of dollars)Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase% increase$45.5$41.4$4.110%    The increase in revenue was due to the inclusion of $1.8 million of revenue from Alpha and $1.0 million of revenue from CDS effective August 1, 2012. The increase in revenue is also attributable to revenue from TMX Atrium, acquired July 29, 2011 and higher revenue from co-location services, data feeds and PC-Bond. The increase was also due to higher revenue recoveries related to under-reported usage of real-time quotes in prior periods during Q3/12 compared with Q3/11.There was also a 5% increase in the average number of MX market data subscriptions (28,262+ MX market data subscriptions in Q3/12 compared with 26,867+ in Q3/11) and a price increase effective April 1, 2012.The increase in revenue was also attributable to the impact of the depreciation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar in Q3/12 compared with Q3/11.The increases were partially offset by net price reductions on TSX market data subscriptions effective October 1, 2011 and April 1, 2012, and lower revenue from usage based quotes.Overall, there was an 8% decrease in the average number of professional and equivalent real-time market data subscriptions to Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange products (148,369+ professional and equivalent real-time market data subscriptions in Q3/12 compared with 161,040+ in Q3/11)._______________________________*Includes TMX Group Limited results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.+ Prior to August 1, 2012 data includes a base number of subscriptions for customers that had entered into enterprise agreements.Technology services and other revenue(in millions of dollars) Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase/ (decrease)% increase/ (decrease)Technology services and other revenue$2.8$8.2($5.4)(66%)SEDAR, SEDI & NRD revenue$2.3-$2.3-Total$5.1$8.2($3.1)(38%)     Technology services and other revenue decreased primarily due to net foreign exchange losses on U.S. dollar accounts receivable in Q3/12 whereas we recorded net foreign exchange gains in Q3/11.The decrease also included the loss in revenue from the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) following the termination of our contract to provide services effective March 31, 2012, which amounts to approximately $6.7 million on an annual basis. In addition, revenue from prior periods included revenue related to services provided to CDS which have been eliminated upon consolidation effective August 1, 2012. This revenue from CDS was approximately $1.7 million in 2011.Offsetting these decreases in revenue was the consolidated revenue from Razor Risk Technologies Limited (Razor Risk) effective from February 14, 2012.Technology services and other revenue includes $2.7 million of revenue from CDS services SEDAR, SEDI and NRD, effective August 1, 2012. The current contract is due to expire on October 31, 2013. On June 29, 2012, the CSA announced it is seeking competitive proposals to acquire certain services in connection with the operation of the CSA National Systems, including these services._________________________*Includes TMX Group Limited results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.REPO interest (in millions of dollars) Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase/ (decrease)% increase/ (decrease)Interest income$13.7-$13.7-Interest expense($13.7)-($13.7)-Net REPO interest----     On February 21, 2012, CDCC launched the clearing of fixed income REPO agreements. The interest income and interest expense arising from the REPO agreements are equal. However, as CDCC does not have a legal right to offset these amounts, they are recognized separately on the condensed consolidated income statement.In Q3/12, CDCC cleared 7,035 REPO transactions, comprised of 95 eligible ISINs with a notional value of $316.88 billion.Fees earned by CDCC for providing the clearing service for the REPO agreements are included in Derivatives Markets Trading, clearing and related revenue.Operating ExpensesOperating expenses in Q3/12 were $100.2 million*, up $27.9 million, or 39%, from $72.3 million** due to the additional operating expenses included from acquisitions. These included $13.5 million of expenses from CDS and $3.1 million of expenses from Alpha, effective August 1, 2012. There was also an increase related to the incremental amortization of intangible assets related to TMX Group Limited's acquisition of TMX Group Inc. of $6.5 million. In addition, the increase was attributable to the inclusion of an aggregate of $4.2 million of incremental expenses related to TMX Atrium, acquired July 29, 2011, Razor Risk, consolidated from February 14, 2012 and ir2020, the assets of which were acquired December 23, 2011.___________________________________*Includes TMX Group Limited results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.*Includes TMX Group Limited results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.Compensation and Benefits(in millions of dollars)Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase% increase$45.3$37.6$7.720%    Compensation and benefits costs were higher due to an overall increase in salary and benefits costs relating to increased headcount and merit increases, including $6.9 million of costs related to CDS and $1.3 million of costs related to Alpha, as well as costs related to TMX Atrium, Razor Risk and ir2020. There were 1,344 TMX Group Limited employees at September 30, 2012 versus 901 employees for TMX Group Inc. and its subsidiaries at September 30, 2011 largely due to the additions of CDS (343) and Alpha (48), Razor Risk (34) and ir2020 (3).

We continue to invest in our leading technologies, and over the past year we have continued to add resources to generate future revenue growth. For example, there have been 10 new employees engaged in the REPO initiative since Q2/11.In addition, there was an increase in costs associated with long-term employee performance incentive plans due to share price appreciation.The higher costs were partially offset by higher capitalization of costs associated with technology initiatives and lower costs associated with short-term employee performance incentive plans.Information and Trading Systems(in millions of dollars)Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase% increase$18.4$12.8$5.644%    Information and trading systems expenses were higher primarily due to the inclusion of $2.9 million of expenses from CDS, $1.2 million of expenses from Alpha, and costs related to TMX Atrium.The increase was also due to higher spending on projects including TMX Quantum XA._________________________*Includes TMX Group Limited results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.General and Administration(in millions of dollars)Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase% increase$20.0$14.6$5.437%    The increase in general and administration costs was primarily due to the inclusion of $2.8 million of expenses from CDS and $0.5 million of expenses from Alpha, as well as costs related to Razor Risk. In addition, we incurred bank fees relating to the REPO initiative, all of which have been charged back to the Clearing Members on a pro rated basis based on service usage, and are included in Derivatives Markets Trading, clearing and related revenue.Depreciation and Amortization (in millions of dollars)Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase% increase$16.5$7.3$9.2126%    Depreciation and amortization costs increased by $6.7 million (or 18 cents per common share on a basic and diluted basis) due to the incremental amortization of intangible assets related to TMX Group Limited's acquisition of TMX Group Inc., Alpha and CDS, exclusive of amortization related to intangible assets previously held by TMX Group Inc., Alpha and CDS. In addition, amortization further increased due to $0.8 million in depreciation and amortization costs associated with the business operations of CDS.Depreciation and amortization costs also increased due to increased amortization of intangible assets related to REPO clearing and acquisitions including TMX Atrium, Razor Risk and ir2020. In addition, there was increased depreciation of fixed assets related to co-location services and TMX Quantum XA.______________________________*Includes TMX Group Limited results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.**Includes TMX Group Inc. results for July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.Net Income Attributable to Non-Controlling Interests(in millions of dollars)Q3/12*Q3/11**$ increase% increase$4.2$3.0$1.240%    TMX Group Inc.The net income attributable to non-controlling interests includes $3.0 million related to the period prior to September 14, 2012, when TMX Group Limited owned 80% of TMX Group Inc.

For comparison purposes in this press release, we have also included TMX Group Inc. consolidated revenue and operating expenses, income from operations and net income attributable to non-controlling interests for the period from January 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.This information differs from the TMX Group Limited consolidated financial statements for the interim period ended September 30, 2012. The TMX Group Limited consolidated financial statements reflect the accounts of TMX Group Limited for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, including the operating results of TMX Group Inc., Alpha, CDS and their respective subsidiaries from August 1, 2012, and only the accounts of TMX Group Limited for the comparative period of nine months ended September 30, 2011.Management believes that the inclusion of the operating results of TMX Group Inc. and its subsidiaries for the entire nine months and the inclusion of the operating results of Alpha and CDS from their dates of acquisition, August 1, 2012 for the above mentioned measures is the most meaningful presentation for the purpose of discussion of the results of operations.(In millions of Canadian dollars) (Unaudited)      TMX Group LimitedJan-Sept/12TMX Group Inc.Jan-Sept/12CDS/AlphaAug-Sept/12  TMX Group Inc.

These decreases were partially offset by the inclusion of $14.8 million of revenue from CDS and $3.2 million of revenue from Alpha, effective August 1, 2012, and increased revenue from information services (including revenue from TMX Atrium, acquired July 29, 2011), derivatives trading and clearing and technology services and other._________________________°° Includes TMX Group Inc. results for January 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.Issuer services revenue(in millions of dollars) Nine Months Ended     Sept. 30/12***** Sept. 30/11****** $ increase/ (decrease) % increase/ (decrease)Initial listing fees$10.9 $23.3 ($12.4) (53%)Additional listing fees$70.8 $86.3 ($15.5) (18%)Sustaining listing fees$52.6 $56.8 ($4.2) (7%)Other issuer services$10.9 $10.2 $0.7 7%Total$145.2 $176.6 ($31.4) (18%)        Initial listing fees in the first nine months of 2012 were lower primarily due to a decrease in the number and value of new listings on Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange compared with the first nine months of 2011. Initial listing fees in the first nine months of 2011 included approximately $2.8 million of revenue as a result of a large number of issuers converting from income trusts to corporate entities in the period.Additional listing fees in the first nine months of 2012 decreased compared with the first nine months of 2011 primarily due to a decrease in the number and value of additional financings on TSX Venture Exchange and the number of additional financings on Toronto Stock Exchange. While there was a significant increase in the value of additional listings on Toronto Stock Exchange in the first nine months of 2012 compared with the first nine months of 2011, this was driven by a number of high value transactions where the issuers paid the maximum listing fee.Issuers listed on Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange pay annual sustaining listing fees primarily based on their market capitalization at the end of the prior calendar year, subject to minimum and maximum fees. The decrease in sustaining listing fees was due to the overall lower market capitalization of listed issuers on both exchanges at the end of 2011 compared with the end of 2010. The decrease was also due to a reduction in certain fees effective January 1, 2012.Other issuer services revenue includes $0.4 million of revenue from CDS Solutions effective August 1, 2012._________________________***** Includes TMX Group Limited results for January 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for January 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.****** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for January 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.Trading, clearing, depository and related revenue(in millions of dollars) Nine Months Ended   Sept. 30/12*****Sept. 30/11******$ increase/ (decrease)% increase/ (decrease)Cash markets trading and clearing $68.2$82.9($14.7)(18%)CDS Depository $7.9-$7.9-Derivatives markets trading and clearing $89.8$85.0$4.86%Energy markets trading and clearing$32.2$32.6($0.4)(1%)Total $198.1$200.5$2.41%     Cash MarketsCash markets equity trading revenue decreased primarily due to a 38% decrease in the volume of securities traded on TSX Venture Exchange (33.16 billion securities in the first nine months of 2012 versus 53.22 billion securities traded in the first nine months of 2011), and a 20% decrease in the volume of securities traded on Toronto Stock Exchange (63.39 billion securities in the first nine months of 2012 versus 79.49 billion securities in the first nine months of 2011). Cash markets revenue also included revenue from TMX Select, which was launched in July 2011 (1.89 billion securities traded in the first nine months of 2012 versus 0.49 billion in the first nine months of 2011).The decrease was also as a result of changes to our equity trading fee schedule effective March 1, 2011, which reduced the fees for significant usage for our Market on Open (MOO) facility and introduced net credit payments for trading in our continuous limit order book as well as additional changes effective April 1, 2011, which provided cost savings to participants that trade equities where the trade price per-security is lower than $1.00. Effective October 1, 2011, we also made changes to our market making fee schedule for Toronto Stock Exchange, including introducing monthly credits.Partially offsetting the decrease was the inclusion of $2.8 million of revenue from CDS clearing and settlement revenue effective August 1, 2012. CDS processed 52.44 million trades (49.77 million exchange trades) from August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.The decrease was also partially offset by the inclusion of $1.4 million of revenue from Alpha effective August 1, 2012. There were 4.85 billion securities traded on Alpha from August 1, 2012 through September 30, 2012.The decrease in overall cash markets revenue also reflects a change in Shorcan fixed income trading product mix, a price decrease effective April 18, 2012 and lower volumes._________________________***** Includes TMX Group Limited results for January 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for January 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.****** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for January 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.CDS Depository CDS Depository revenue of $7.9 million is included effective August 1, 2012. CDS value on deposit at September 30, 2012 was $4,119.9 billion. In addition, CDS processed 28,646 entitlements and corporate events (such as dividend transactions and interest payments) from August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.Derivatives Markets The increase in derivatives markets revenue reflects higher revenues from BOX primarily as a result of a 12% increase in BOX volumes (115.72 million contracts in the first nine months of 2012 versus 103.24 million contracts traded in the first nine months of 2011) and the impact of the depreciation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar in the first nine months of 2012 compared with the first nine months of 2011. Partially offsetting these revenue increases from BOX was lower revenue from Options Regulatory Fees. As of May 14, 2012, the fees charged, and related costs incurred, by the BOX SRO entity are not consolidated into TMX Group results.The increase in derivatives markets revenue also reflects an increase in trading and clearing revenue from MX and CDCC. Volumes increased by 4% (49.52 million contracts traded in the first nine months of 2012 versus 47.58 million contracts traded in the first nine months of 2012) largely as a result of increased volumes in the Ten-Year Government of Canada Bond Futures, or CGB, contract, as well as increased volumes in ETF and equity options. The increase in revenue was partially offset by the impact of price changes since the first nine months of 2011. Open interest was up 8% at September 30, 2012 compared with September 30, 2011.Derivatives markets revenue for the first nine months of 2012 also includes fees earned by CDCC for providing the clearing service on REPO transactions as well as bank fees that are charged back to Clearing Members (see Other Credit and Liquidity Facilities and Guarantee). This service was launched on February 21, 2012.Energy Markets There was a 3% decrease in total energy volume# traded on NGX in the first nine months of 2012 (10.87 million terajoules in the first nine months of 2012 compared to 11.21 million terajoules in the first nine months of 2011) primarily due to a 3% decrease in natural gas volumes.There was a 78% decline in NGX crude oil volumes (previously NetThruPut Inc.'s, or NTP's, business) due to limited acceptance of NGX's crude oil clearing services and increased competition from voice brokers, including from Shorcan Energy Brokers. This decrease in NGX crude oil revenue was essentially offset by higher revenue from Shorcan Energy Brokers driven by higher volumes in the first nine months of 2012 compared with the first nine months of 2011. TMX Group Inc. recorded a non-cash impairment charge on the intangible assets related to NTP in Q2/12.The decrease in revenue was somewhat offset by the impact of the depreciation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar in the first nine months of 2012 compared with the first nine months of 2011._________________________# NGX total energy volume includes trading and clearing in natural gas, crude oil and electricity.Information services revenue(in millions of dollars)Nine Months Ended    Sept. 30/12***** Sept. 30/11****** $ increase % increase$132.1 $121.8 $10.3 8%       The increase was partially due to the inclusion of $1.8 million of revenue from Alpha and $1.0 million of revenue from CDS, effective August 1, 2012. Revenue from TMX Atrium, which was acquired July 29, 2011, has also grown as well as revenue from co-location services, data feeds and PC-Bond. The increase was also due to higher revenue recoveries related to under-reported usage of real-time quotes in prior periods during the first nine months of 2012 compared with the first nine months of 2011. There was also a 9% increase in the average number of MX market data subscriptions (27,545+ MX market data subscriptions in the first nine months of 2012 compared with 25,272+ in the first nine months of 2011) and a price increase effective April 1, 2012.The increase in revenue was also attributable to the impact of the depreciation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar in the first nine months of 2012 compared with the first nine months of 2011.The increases were partially offset by net price reductions on TSX market data subscriptions effective October 1, 2011 and April 1, 2012, and lower revenue from usage based quotes.Overall, there was a 6% decrease in the average number of professional and equivalent real-time market data subscriptions to Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange products (152,188+ professional and equivalent real-time market data subscriptions in the first nine months of 2012 compared with 161,305+ in the first nine months of 2011).________________________________ ***** Includes TMX Group Limited results for January 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012, TMX Group Inc. results for January 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 and CDS and Alpha results for August 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012.****** Includes TMX Group Inc. results for January 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.+ Prior to August 1, 2012 data includes a base number of subscriptions for customers that had entered into enterprise agreements.Technology services and other revenue(in millions of dollars) Nine Months Ended   Sept. 30/12*****Sept. 30/11******$ increase% increaseTechnology services and other revenue$14.3$12.9$1.411%SEDAR, SEDI & NRD revenue$2.3-$2.3-Total $16.6$12.9$3.729%     Technology services and other revenue increased primarily due to receipt of a one-time termination fee, recovery of disposal and severance costs, and recognition of previously deferred revenue from IIROC of approximately $5.0 million. In addition, we consolidated revenue from Razor Risk, effective from February 14, 2012.Offsetting these increases in revenue was the loss in revenue from IIROC following the termination of our contract to provide services effective March 31, 2012, which amounts to approximately $6.7 million on an annual basis. In addition, revenue from prior periods included revenue related to services provided to CDS which have been eliminated upon consolidation effective August 1, 2012. This revenue from CDS was approximately $1.7 million in 2011.In addition, we recorded net foreign exchange losses on U.S. dollar accounts receivable in the first nine months of 2012 whereas we recorded net foreign exchange gains in the first nine months of 2011.Technology services and other revenue includes $2.7 million of revenue from CDS services SEDAR, SEDI and NRD, effective August 1, 2012.

There was also an increase of $6.5 million related to the incremental amortization of intangible assets related to TMX Group Limited's acquisition of TMX Group Inc. In addition, the increase was attributable to the inclusion of an aggregate of $15.3 million of incremental expenses related to TMX Atrium, acquired July 29, 2011, Razor Risk, consolidated from February 14, 2012 and ir2020, the assets of which were acquired December 23, 2011. There was also an overall increase in salary and benefits costs, information and trading systems costs and depreciation and amortization, somewhat offset by lower general and administration costs due to the inclusion in the first nine months of 2011 of a commodity tax adjustment of $4.8 million relating to prior periods.Compensation and Benefits(in millions of dollars)Nine Months Ended    Sept. 30/12***** Sept. 30/11****** $ increase % increase$125.3 $107.8 $17.5 16%       Compensation and benefits costs were higher due to an overall increase in salary and benefits costs relating to increased headcount and merit increases, including $6.9 million of costs related to CDS and $1.3 million of costs related to Alpha, as well as costs related to TMX Atrium, Razor Risk and ir2020. There were 1,344 TMX Group Limited employees at September 30, 2012 versus 901 employees for TMX Group Inc. and its subsidiaries at September 30, 2011 largely due to the additions of CDS (343) and Alpha (48), Razor Risk (34) and ir2020 (3).

We continue to invest in our leading technologies, and over the past year we have continued to add resources to generate future revenue growth. For example, there have been 10 new employees engaged in the REPO initiative since Q2/11.There was also an increase in costs associated with long-term employee performance incentive plans due to share price appreciation.The higher costs were partially offset by higher capitalization of costs associated with technology initiatives and lower costs associated with short-term employee performance incentive plans.Information and Trading Systems(in millions of dollars)Nine Months Ended  Sept. 30/12*****Sept. 30/11******$ increase% increase$46.5$34.7$11.834%    Information and trading systems expenses were higher primarily due to the inclusion of $2.9 million of expenses from CDS and $1.2 million of expenses from Alpha, as well as expenses related to TMX Atrium and Razor Risk.The increase was also due to higher spending on new technology initiatives in the first nine months of 2012 compared with the first nine months of 2011.

OTC REPO agreements between buying and selling Clearing Members are novated to CDCC whereby the rights and obligations of the Clearing Members under the REPO agreements are cancelled and replaced by new agreements with CDCC. Once novation occurs, CDCC becomes the counterparty to both the buying and selling Clearing Member. As a result, the contractual right to receive and return the principal amount of the REPO as well as the contractual right to receive and pay interest on the REPO is transferred to CDCC. Receivable and payable balances outstanding with the same Clearing Member are offset when they are in the same currency and are to be settled on the same day, as CDCC has a legally enforceable right to offset. Balances with Clearing Members include outstanding balances on open REPO transactions, including both the original principal amount of the REPO and the accrued interest, which are both carried at amortized cost. As CDCC is the central counterparty, an equivalent amount is recognized in both assets and liabilities. Balances with Clearing Members and participants relating to CDCC were $3,236.7 million at September 30, 2012.Total assets includes a goodwill of $1,315.3 million and other intangible assets of $3,639.5 million acquired in connection with the Maple Transaction.Total assets also includes energy contracts receivable of $444.5 million and fair value of open energy contracts of $86.7 million related to the clearing operations of NGX, as well as Balances with Clearing Members and participants relating to CDS of $381.3 million. As is the case with CDCC, NGX and CDS carry offsetting liabilities.__________________________ *** Includes TMX Group Limited results onlyCredit Facilities and GuaranteesLoans payable(in millions of dollars)September 30, 2012***December 31, 2011***$ increase$1,508.1-$1,508.1   On July 31, 2012, TMX Group signed a credit agreement (Credit Agreement) with a syndicate of Canadian and global financial institutions.

The daylight liquidity facilities must be cleared to zero at the end of each day.CDCC also maintains a $100.0 million syndicated revolving standby liquidity facility to provide end of day liquidity in the event that CDCC is unable to clear the daylight liquidity facilities to zero. Advances under the facility will be secured by collateral in the form of securities that have been received by CDCC.  In Q3/12, CDCC drew on this facility in a circumstance where there was an imbalance in receipts and payments at the end of the day.

During the months of August and September 2012, following the acquisitions of TMX Group Inc., CDS and Alpha, we earned operating income of $39.6 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, cash flows used in operations were $105.9 million, net of $99.3 million of cash outlays pertaining to Maple related costs, and we paid $29.9 million in dividends on TMX Group Inc. common shares in August, 2012. Based on our current business operations and model, we believe that we have sufficient cash resources to operate our business, and meet our financial covenants under the Credit Agreement and our capital maintenance requirements imposed by regulators.Debt financing of future investment opportunities could be limited by current and future economic conditions, the covenants on TMX Group's Credit Agreement, and by capital maintenance requirements imposed by regulators (see Managing Capital in TMX Group Limited Q3/12 Management's Discussion and Analysis, or MD&A).The recognition orders of TSX Inc. and Alpha Exchange contain certain financial viability tests that must be met. If either TSX Inc. or Alpha Exchange Inc. fails to maintain or anticipates that it will fail any of its financial viability tests, the OSC can impose additional terms and conditions.  This could, for example, include a requirement that TSX Inc. or Alpha Exchange Inc. may not without the prior approval of the Director of the OSC, pay dividends (among other things) until the deficiencies have been eliminated for at least six months or a shorter period of time as agreed by OSC staff. In addition, the recognition order of MX imposes similar restrictions on the payment of dividends. If MX fails to meet the financial viability ratios for more than three months, MX will not, without the prior approval of Quebec's AMF, pay dividends (among other things) until the deficiencies have been eliminated for at least six months.As at September 30, 2012, we met all of the above requirements.____________________________ 3 The "Summary of Cash Position and Other Matters"section above contains certain forward-looking statements.
