CBOE and CFE to Expand ETF-Based Volatility Index Products-continued

Brazil ETF Volatility Index Futures and Options Next New Listings
February 17, 2012--CBOE Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBOE) announced today that Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and CBOE Futures Exchange (CFE) will each launch a new ETF-based volatility index product in the coming weeks:
CBOE Brazil ETF Volatility Index security futures (VXEW) - Tuesday, February 21 on CFE
CBOE Brazil ETF Volatility Index options (VXEWZ) - Tuesday, March 6 on CBOE

The calculation of the CBOE Brazil ETF Volatility Index is derived from applying CBOE's VIX® methodology to the prices of CBOE listed options on the iShares MSCI Brazil Index Fund (ETF symbol: EWZ). EWZ options were the seventeenth most actively traded ETF options in the U.S. last year.

"We continue to see tremendous interest in trading VIX options and futures and our other volatility-related products and are committed to building our volatility franchise to meet this investor demand," said CBOE Holdings Chairman and CEO William J. Brodsky. "Expanding our roster of volatility options and futures products into sectors such as emerging markets is the next step in this evolution."

The CBOE Brazil ETF Volatility Index products are the latest in a series of CBOE and CFE volatility index product launches in 2012. CFE began trading CBOE Emerging Markets ETF Volatility Index security futures (futures symbol: VXEM) on January 9, and options trading on VXEEM began on January 31 on CBOE.
