Xchanging In Discussions Regarding London Metal Exchange Contract

Xchanging plc (XCH.L) announced it is in discussions with The London Metal Exchange that will lead to modification or termination of its existing contractual relationship with the Metal Exchange. Xchanging said the current situation reflects the recent change in ownership of the London Metal Exchange. The contract carries a minimum notice period of 12 months.

The company believes that cost savings in the business combined with other business initiatives will contribute materially to offsetting any loss of profit arising from the modification or termination of the contract.

The contract to provide technology services, which renewed on 1 January 2012, was for a minimum of three years, with a two year notice period after the first year. Under the terms of the contract, if there is a change of control at the London Metal Exchange, it is entitled to terminate the contract early with a 12 month notice period.
