                  Seminar is arriving to Dubai.

  Algorithmic and High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities,

(July 13, 2012, New York) As reported on Khaleejtimes, Dubai Duty Free’s first foray into border shop retailing
was firmly underscored on Thursday with the official inauguration of its Hatta border shop.

Located next to the Customs and Immigration offices at the Hatta-Oman border, the new retail unit covers some
42 square metres and provides travelers with a 24 hour service.

Speaking at the official inauguration, which was attended by senior government officials, Colm McLoughlin,
executive vice-chairman of Dubai Duty Free, said: “When we were first approached with the idea of establishing
a border shop here at the Hatta-Oman border, we thought that the timing was good as there are plans in place to
expand capacity at the border check points. So, while we have started with a relatively small retail unit, we would
definitely be happy to grow this in line with the plans that are in place.

As Dubai duty free opens Hatta border shop, Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders, will conduct the most
thorough review of high-frequency trading at his upcoming The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Dubai: How High
