The Exchange confirms that Lehmans has not effected any on-Exchange transactions on 15 September, including any transactions on the International Order Book.

Default Procedures
The operation of the Exchange's default procedures, in accordance with the provisions of the companies act 1989, is designed to produce a net sum calculation of the liabilities owed to and by the defaulter with respect to each of its counterparties to unsettled non CCP on-exchange trades. Under the rules of the London Stock Exchange the Exchange will determine the net amount payable between Lehman and each of its counterparties in respect of unsettled on Exchange trades as at the time of default (11:00 hrs on Monday 15 September 2008).

In accordance with paragraph D121 of the rules, this net amount will be certified by the Exchange and may be proved as a debt by the defaulter or counterparty as applicable. Following this certification, it is for the defaulter and it's counterparties to organise the associated payments. The Exchange is not authorised to engage in the payment process and its role in the default will cease once it certifies the net amount payable.

Current Status
This page will be updated as the default process develops.
