Exhibit 21
 
Subsidiaries of the Registrant
 
The following are subsidiaries of ML & Co. as of December 28, 2007 and the states or jurisdictions in which they are organized. Indentation indicates the principal parent of each subsidiary. Except as otherwise specified, in each case ML & Co. owns, directly or indirectly, at least 99% of the voting securities of each subsidiary. The names of particular subsidiaries have been omitted because, considered in the aggregate as a single subsidiary, they would not constitute, as of the end of the year covered by this report, a “significant subsidiary” as that term is defined in Rule 1.02(w) of Regulation S-X under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
