ITG Estimates Third Quarter Earnings Impact of September 11 Disaster

NEW YORK, September 24, 2001 - Investment Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE: ITG), a leading provider of technology-based equity trading services, today announced that as a result of the recent four day closing of equity markets and related events, net income for the third quarter of 2001 will be reduced by approximately $3.5 million or $0.11 cents per share. Prior to these events, ITG was expecting to slightly exceed consensus estimates of $0.56 per share. "The ITG family would like to express their heartfelt condolences to the victims of this catastrophic event," said Raymond L. Killian, Jr., ITG's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While we were very fortunate not to have lost employees or suffered damage to our facilities, the loss of family members, business associates and community members is deeply felt throughout our entire organization."

The fund is managed by The New York Times Company Foundation, which covers all administrative costs. In addition, ITG will match up to an additional $500,000 of employee donations for a possible total of $2,000,000 from ITG and its employees.
