to announce the launch of Ziggo options which will provide our customers with new investment
opportunities. The new Ziggo options enable investors to hedge their share positions and to benefit
from price fluctuations. A new options listing is also beneficial to the liquidity of the underlying
share.”

investment community and contribute to the liquidity of the shares. This is another step in offering
investors an even more complete range of opportunities to invest in Ziggo.”

contract month and will have initial lifetimes of one to nine months. Each option will represent 100
shares in Ziggo and will be cleared via LCH.Clearnet SA. NYSE Liffe will select up to three PMMs
and nine CMMs to support liquidity in the options.
