Interactive Data Announces Change in Financial Leadership

Interactive Data Corporation, a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions to financial institutions, active traders and individual investors, today announced that Andrew J. Hajducky III has resigned as executive vice president, treasurer and chief financial officer to pursue new opportunities, effective immediately. Christine A. Sampson, the Company’s vice president of finance and chief accounting officer, will serve as interim chief financial officer while Interactive Data conducts a search for Hajducky’s successor.

Ray D’Arcy, Interactive Data’s president and chief executive officer, stated, “I’d like to thank Andy for his contributions over the past three years and wish him well in his future endeavors. Having known and worked closely with Christine for the past 30 years, I am confident in her ability to oversee our accounting and finance organization as we advance our search for the Company’s next CFO. Interactive Data moves forward as an industry leader with compelling offerings, enduring customer relationships and extensive global distribution channels that are underpinned by a strong, vibrant financial foundation.”

As Interactive Data’s vice president of finance and chief accounting officer since December 2006, Christine Sampson, 56, has managed key areas within the Company’s accounting and finance operations. After joining Interactive Data in 1978 as a sales and tax accountant, Sampson advanced to positions of increasing responsibility, becoming vice president of finance and controller in November 2000. During the past decade of her tenure at Interactive Data, Sampson has played an instrumental role in helping the Company complete numerous acquisitions and adapt to an array of new financial reporting and accounting requirements.

A leading global executive search firm has been retained by the Company to assist in the selection of a new chief financial officer.
