NYSE Euronext Update On Acquisition By IntercontinentalExchange

NYSE Euronext (NYSE: NYX) today provided the following statement and timeline for the completion of its pending acquisition by IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE: ICE), a leading operator of global markets and clearing houses.

ICE and NYSE Euronext have postponed the closing date of their previously announced merger transaction from November 4, 2013 to a later date to be announced to allow additional time for relevant European regulators and ministries to process and issue their approvals. As previously announced, ICE and NYSE Euronext have received a letter from the Chairmen’s Committee of the Euronext College of Regulators, which includes each individual regulator of the Euronext markets, indicating that it is “not minded to object” to ICE’s proposed acquisition. ICE and NYSE Euronext are awaiting receipt of the remaining national regulatory approvals, which they expect to receive in the coming days, and anticipate closing the proposed transaction within two business days after receipt of the final regulatory approval. Neither ICE nor NYSE Euronext anticipates any substantive issues being raised in the context of these remaining European national approvals.

ICE and NYSE Euronext have not extended the election deadline for shareholders of NYSE Euronext to make merger consideration elections of stock and/or cash consideration, which remains 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 31, 2013, with such election deadline being fixed unless extended by ICE through further public announcement. Shareholders of NYSE Euronext who hold shares through a financial intermediary such as a bank, broker, trust company or other nominee may have an earlier election deadline and should carefully review any instructions received from their bank, broker, trust company or other nominee in order to comply with any earlier deadline. Shareholders of NYSE Euronext with questions regarding the election procedures or materials should contact their financial intermediary, or Georgeson Inc., the information agent for the transaction, at 888-566-8006 (toll free in the United States) or 781-575-2137 (outside the United States).
