KASE notices that the activity ranking of the exchange government securities
market operators, given in the table, was developed using the new method.
This method text will be published at the exchange site in the nearest time. This
method essence includes the following.

The company's place in the ranking is determined by the value of the so called
activity indicator (Ka), calculated for each exchange member. The first position
in the rating corresponds with the largest Ka value.

This indicator for the GS market operators is calculated by formula
Ka = V + N + D, where:

V - the indicator of deals volume, concluded by the being rated exchange
member in GS during the analyzed period on the KASE secondary market by
open trades methods; V = Vi / Vmax, where Vi - deals volume, concluded by the
being rated company for the period, Vmax - the largest volume of deals,
concluded by any KASE member for the same period (not considering the
National Bank);

N - the indicator of deals number, concluded by the being rated exchange
member in GS for the analyzed period on KASE; N = Ni / Nmax, where Ni - the
number of deals, concluded by the being rated company for the period сделок,
Nmax - the largest volume of deals, concluded by any KASE member for the
same period (not considering the National Bank);

D - the indicator of number of effective for the being rated exchange member
days during the analyzed period (the effective day - the day during which the
being rated exchange member on the KASE secondary market concluded at least
one deal in GS by the open trades method); D = Di / Dmax, where Di - the
number of effective days of the being rated exchange member, D(max) - the
largest number of effective days, fixed for the analyzed period on any KASE
member;

Indicators Vi, Ni, Di, Ai, Vmax, Nmax, Dmax, Amax are unit values, i.e. are
calculated as the ratio of deals volume (number of deals, number of effective
days or number of sub-accounts) to the number of days in the analyzed period,
during which this trades' participant was this category exchange member. Thus,
dependence of indicators values on the duration of the being rated KASE
member activities is leveled.

At the same time, not all KASE category "K" members are included into the
ranking. For inclusion into the ranking the company must have KASE
membership by the corresponding category during not less than 70 % (by
calendar days) of the analyzed period, if considered the period up to three months
inclusive, not less than 60 %, if the period duration makes up from three to six
months, and not less than 50 %, in case of use of the longer analyzed period.
