Ambassador Carl Spielvogel and William T. Ethridge will not seek re-election at Interactive Data Corporation’s annual meeting of stockholders on 20 May 2009. Both Ambassador Spielvogel and Ethridge plan to fulfill the remainder of their respective terms.

Ambassador Spielvogel, 80, plans to retire from service on the Interactive Data Board. He is chairman and chief executive officer of Carl Spielvogel Associates, Inc., an international investment and management company.

Ethridge, 57, plans to resign from Interactive Datas Board of Directors after taking on greater responsibility last year as chief executive officer of Pearson Education, North America. He has served on the Interactive Data Board of Directors since October 2001.

On behalf of our Board, Id like to thank Carl and Will for their long-standing and outstanding service on our Board, says Rona Fairhead, chairman, Board of Directors, Interactive Data.

Their collective insights have helped guide Interactive Datas growth over the years, and create significant value for all key stakeholders in the process. Their experience, business acumen and sound advice will be missed.
