Bonds and Repos Italian debt

Offsetting of failed positions

In order to decrease the number of unnecessary fails resulting from opposite failed settlement instructions, LCH.Clearnet SA will offer its Clearing Members the possibility to offset their failed positions on Italian debt from Monday 14 March, 2011.

The offsetting request can be made for failed positions of opposite directions when they meet the following criteria:

As a reminder, LCH.Clearnet creates a single net settlement instruction per ISD and ISIN.

The offsetting request shall be made by filling out an Offsetting Request Form which should be sent to LCH.Clearnet SAs Operations Department by fax and by email, on ISD +10 (end of validity date) of the buying position before 2.30 pm CET.

LCH.Clearnet SAs Operations Department will then, after validation, convey the request to Monte Titoli for processing before 4.00 pm CET.
