SGX Suspends MF Global Singapore

Singapore Exchange Limited (“SGX”) has suspended the membership of MF Global Singapore Pte
Limited (“MF Global”) on Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited, Singapore Exchange
Derivatives Trading Limited and Singapore Exchange Derivatives Clearing Limited with immediate

MF Global has no outstanding proprietary positions and almost all their customers’ positions on SGX
have been transferred to other clearing members or closed out by MF Global. Only a small number of
customer accounts remain open and available for transfer to other brokers or to be closed out.

The suspension does not affect the ability of MF Global customers to obtain transfers of their positions
on SGX to other clearing members or to close out their positions. SGX will assist with either option and
continue to facilitate customers’ requests until 9 November 2011. Thereafter, remaining positions will be
closed out.

MF Global continues to meet its financial obligations to SGX’s derivatives clearing house.
