While not required to do so, the Company intends to disclose the adoption of such pre-arranged plans by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of S&P Global Inc. The Company does not undertake to report Rule 10b5-1 plans that may be adopted by any officers or directors in the future, or to report any modifications or termination of any publicly announced trading plan.
