LONDON, November 24, 2010 - Trayport Limited, a leading provider of multi-asset-class electronic
trading solutions, today said that Alpiq, an independent Swiss service
provider in the field of energy generation, trading and sales, has chosen to
use GlobalVision Trading Gateway(SM) to trade energy commodities. Trading
Gateway is a trading platform that enables users to trade commodities on
multiple liquidity pools on a single user interface. The agreement with Alpiq
shows Trayport's intent to help energy companies grow and access markets
across Europe.

Alpiq Holding Ltd. is Switzerland's leading energy trading company and
largest energy provider with a European focus. The Group was formed at the
beginning of 2009 through the merger of two energy pioneers, Atel Holding Ltd
and Energie Ouest Suisse SA (EOS). Operating in 31 countries with
subsidiaries present in 27 countries, it employs more than 10,000 people and
generated consolidated revenue of approximately CHF 15 billion for 2009.
Alpiq is engaged in power generation and transmission, energy sales and
trading, and energy services.

James Davies, Head of Sales & Client Services at Trayport, said, "The
agreement with Alpiq is an important one for Trayport. The company was
previously using trading software from another supplier, but after Alpiq's
merger, they decided to upgrade to Trayport's latest software, which brings
with it improved functionality to assist its electronic trading operation.
Trayport's Trading Gateway will help Alpiq to trade the best prices across a
wide range of European energy markets. It also allows Trayport to play a
central role in bringing both the power markets and those who trade them
closer together."

"We are pleased to sign the agreement with Trayport to use GlobalVision
Trading Gateway and look forward to a successful collaboration between the
companies," said Andreas Werz, spokesman from Alpiq.
