Alpha Market Share Over 20%

    Toronto (ots/PRNewswire) - Alpha Group today announced that, for the first time since its launch in November 2008, the volume traded in TSX listed securities on Alpha ATS represented more than 20% of market share across all Canadian transparent market places.

    Jos Schmitt, CEO of Alpha Group, noted "We are very pleased with achieving this major new milestone in our journey. We need of course to confirm, in the coming days and weeks, the persistence of this new level of activity. What we did notice today as well as over the past few days, is that new order flows were coming to Alpha as a result of Alpha's liquidity, new fee schedule and some dealers leveraging new technologies."

    "I believe there is a growing understanding in the financial industry about the benefits that Alpha is bringing to the Canadian marketplace," added Mr. Schmitt. "Our new fee schedule put in place in August allowed us to leverage our growth to the benefit of our customers, and continued to offer a structure that benefits all participants equally - this was an eye-opener to many. It convinced many skeptics that Alpha is truly for the industry, by the industry. We are now starting to reap the benefits of this vision and the resulting strategy."
