NYSE Euronext Announces Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

NYSE Euronext (NYX) today reported net income of $178 million, or $0.73 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, for the third quarter of 2013, compared to net income of $108 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012. Results for the third quarter of 2013 and 2012 included $24 million and $18 million, respectively, of pre-tax merger expenses and exit costs. Third quarter 2013 results included a $5 million pre-tax gain on the sale of our 12% stake in the Qatar Exchange. Our third quarter 2013 and 2012 GAAP effective tax rate both included a discrete net deferred tax benefit, principally related to the enacted reduction in the corporate tax rate in the United Kingdom. Excluding merger expenses, exit costs, disposal activity and discrete tax items, net income in the third quarter of 2013 was $131 million, or $0.53 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis, compared to $108 million, or $0.44 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis, in the third quarter of 2012.

“I would like to thank all of our clients, shareholders and employees for their support while we worked through our transformative deal with IntercontinentalExchange,” said Duncan L. Niederauer, CEO, NYSE Euronext. “Throughout the process, we continued to execute against our business plan by transitioning our clearing operation, building substantial momentum in our Listings business, achieving our cost saving commitments for 2013 early and managing our capital in a disciplined way for our shareholders. We are especially pleased that Twitter recently announced they will list on the NYSE. What we accomplished has set an excellent foundation for the combination of our two great companies.”
