To be Held on May 21, 2010

This proxy statement supplement, dated May 5, 2010 (the “Supplement”), supplements the definitive proxy statement (which we refer to as the “Proxy Statement”) of the Board of Directors of IntercontinentalExchange, Inc. (the “Company”) filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 5, 2010 relating to the annual meeting of stockholders of the Company to be held on Friday, May 21, 2010 at 8:30 a.m., local time, at The Ritz Carlton Buckhead, 3434 Peachtree Road, NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30326. The purpose of this Supplement is to provide additional information with respect to director nominees who are members of the Company’s Audit Committee. Except as described in this Supplement, the information disclosed in the Proxy Statement continues to apply. To the extent that information in this supplement differs from information disclosed in the proxy statement, the information in this Supplement applies.

Service on the Audit Committees of Other Public Companies. If an Audit Committee member simultaneously serves on the audit committees of more than three public companies, the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) listing standards and the Company’s Audit Committee charter require the Company’s Board of Directors to determine that such simultaneous service does not impair the ability of such member to effectively serve on the Company’s Audit Committee and to disclose such determination in its annual proxy statement. Mr. Martell does not serve on any other public company audit committee, Ms. Sprieser currently serves on one other public company audit committee, and Mr. Salerno currently serves on four other public company audit committees. In accordance with the NYSE listing standards and the Company’s Audit Committee charter, the Company’s Board of Directors has determined that Mr. Salerno’s service on these other public company audit committees does not impair his ability to serve effectively on the Company’s Audit Committee or as Chairman of the Audit Committee. This determination is based on his experience as the former chief financial officer of a major public company, his experience as Chairman of the Company’s Audit Committee, his experience as a member of audit committees of other public companies and the fact that he is retired from full-time employment, thereby allowing him to devote sufficient time to his responsibilities as Chairman of the Audit Committee.

Information about the Company’s 2010 annual meeting of stockholders, scheduled for May 21, 2010, and the director nominees for election are set forth in the Proxy Statement, which is supplemented to reflect the information set forth above.
