Fourth-Quarter 2017 Selected RPC Guidance

The company currently expects average revenue per contract (RPC) for the fourth-quarter of 2017 to be in line with the amounts noted below for the two-months ended November 30, 2017. These expectations are estimated, preliminary and may change. There can be no assurance that our final RPC for the three-months ended December 31, 2017 will not differ materially from these expectations.

The following represents average RPC based on a two-month and a three-month rolling average, reported on a one-month lag. The average RPC represents total transaction fees for Cboe, C2, BZX, EDGX and CFE recognized for the period divided by total contracts traded during the period. Average transaction fees per contract can be affected by various factors, including exchange fee rates, volume-based discounts and transaction mix by contract type and product type.
