IntercontinentalExchange Completes Acquisition Of NYSE Euronext

ATLANTA and NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IntercontinentalExchange Group, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), the leading global network of exchanges and clearing houses, today announced the successful completion of its previously announced acquisition of NYSE Euronext (NYSE: NYX). The stock-and-cash transaction has a total value of approximately $11 billion.  The combination creates the premier operator of global exchanges diversified across a range of asset classes spanning interest rates, equities and equity derivatives, credit derivatives, bonds, foreign exchange, energy, metals and agricultural commodities.

The company has a combined market capitalization of $23 billion. The combined company operates 16 global exchanges and five central clearing houses, and is on track to be the leader in global capital raising for the second consecutive year. ICE and NYSE Euronext businesses will continue to operate under their respective brand names. As previously announced, the company expects to conduct an IPO for the Euronext group of Continental European exchanges as a stand-alone entity, subject to market conditions and regulatory approvals.

"This is a game changing transaction," said ICE Chairman and CEO Jeffrey C. Sprecher. "ICE now leads in terms of the breadth and depth of services, best-in-class technology, and access to markets and capital.  We have significant opportunities ahead both to grow and to make the business more efficient and competitive.

ICE President and NYSE Group CEO Duncan L. Niederauer, stated, "This is a great strategic fit for both companies. We now have a stronger and more diversified business model, which leverages the iconic NYSE Euronext brand, our leadership in listings, equity options and interest rate markets with ICE's attractive portfolio of markets, clearing houses and technology for the global derivatives markets."
