ASX Ltd Half-Year Media Release

Mr Dominic Stevens, ASX Managing Director and CEO, said: "ASX has achieved a strong result for the first
half of the 2018 financial year, with profit up 5.1% on the same period last year to $230.5 million and up 7.3%
- or almost $16 million - on the preceding six months. The performance was driven by higher secondary
capital raisings, increased futures trading - particularly from offshore customers - and growth in technical
services connections and data feeds. While cash market trading was down amid low levels of market
volatility, revenue from information services increased with an expanded range of products. The share of
value transacted in our premium Centre Point and Auctions services continues to grow, an indication that
customers want control over their orders, efficient execution and the deepest liquidity. Collectively, 34.5%
of all ASX on-market cash market value is now transacted through these two services.

"ASX's expenses rose 6.7%, or 3.1% excluding some step costs, such as higher ASIC levy (up 133%) and
electricity charges (up 82%), as signalled at our last results briefing. Our capex is expected to be circa $50
million for the full-year.
