NEW YORK, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The real-time market data feed from the
Kazakhstan Stock Exchange ("KASE") is now available to investors across the
globe via the BLOOMBERG PROFESSIONAL(R) service.  With this development,
Bloomberg users can access KASE real-time trading quotes, pricing and
corporate information. Bloomberg is the first vendor to carry KASE data. 

"The Kazakhstan Stock Exchange development strategy to promote integration of
Kazakhstan's securities market into the global financial system is greatly
enhanced by the availability of KASE real time market data via Bloomberg. The
initiative will promote a further increase in visibility and transparency of
our market," said Mr. Azamat Zholdasbekov, President of the Kazakhstan Stock
Exchange. 

"The Federation of Euro-Asian Stock Exchanges (FEAS) brings together 32 stock
exchange members under the same roof. We attach great value to visibility and
transparency, and Bloomberg, as one of our leading sponsors, has made an
invaluable contribution in this respect, by adding real time data from three
FEAS member exchanges in the last three months, most recently Kazakhstan Stock
Exchange. I am confident that global exposure for developing exchanges through
Bloomberg's global network will help uncover new opportunities for investors,"
said Mr. Huseyin Erkan, Chairman of the Federation of Euro-Asian Stock
Exchanges.

"Bloomberg is the first vendor to offer the global distribution of real time
data from Kazakhstan. This addition reinforces Bloomberg's commitment to work
with new and upcoming venues and to offer the widest possible choice of data
venues for our users," said Gerard Francis, Bloomberg's head of Global
Emerging Markets.
