Fourth-Quarter 2016 RPC Guidance
The company currently expects average revenue per contract (RPC) by product category for the fourth quarter of 2016 to be in line with the amounts noted below for the two-months ended November 30, 2016.  These expectations are estimated, preliminary and may change.  There can be no assurance that our final RPC for the three-months December 31, 2016 will not differ materially from these expectations.

The following represents 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 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.
