NYSE Euronext (NYX) (the “ Company”) today announced that it has priced its cash tender offer (the “ Offer”) to purchase any and all of its outstanding 4.80% Notes due 2013 (the “ Notes”) pursuant to the previously announced Offer.

The Full Tender Offer Consideration was determined as described in the Offer to Purchase, and is equal to: (i) the present value of future principal and interest payments on the Notes discounted to the applicable settlement date at a rate equal to the sum of (x) the yield to maturity of the reference security set forth in the table below, calculated by the dealer managers based on the bid-side price at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on September 27, 2012, and (y) the fixed spread set forth in the table below, minus (ii) accrued and unpaid interest from, and including, the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.
