NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bernstein Liebhard LLP is investigating whether the Board of Directors of NYSE Euronext or the "Company" (NYSE: NYX) breached its fiduciary duty to its shareholders in agreeing to sell NYSE Euronext to IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE: ICE).
Under the terms of the agreement, NYSE Euronext shareholders will have the option to elect to receive consideration per NYSE Euronext share of (i) $33.12 in cash, (ii) 0.2581 IntercontinentalExchange common shares or (iii) a mix of $11.27 in cash plus 0.1703 ICE common shares, subject to a maximum cash consideration of approximately $2.7 billion and a maximum aggregate number of ICE common shares of approximately 42.5 million.
