Deutsche Börse AG: Settlement between Deutsche Börse AG subsidiary
Clearstream and OFAC effective

As Deutsche Börse AG published in its ad hoc disclosures dated 28 October
2013 and 7 November 2013, Clearstream Banking S.A. ('Clearstream'), a 100
per cent subsidiary of Deutsche Börse AG, decided to enter into a
settlement with the US Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets
Control ('OFAC') based on a payment of USD 151,902,000. OFAC had
investigated Clearstream's maintenance of an omnibus account in the United
States and certain securities transfers within the Clearstream settlement
system in 2008. These transfers had related to the decision taken by
Clearstream in 2007 to close its Iranian customers' accounts. The
settlement will close the matter without a final agency finding that a
violation by Clearstream of U.S. sanctions regulations has occurred.

Today, OFAC has notified Clearstream that it has signed the settlement.
Therefore the settlement has become effective.
