Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Boerse AG’s supervisory board will discuss the role of management, including that of Chief Executive Officer Reto Francioni, in the failed merger with NYSE Euronext, Euro am Sonntag reported.

The panel will review the issue at its Feb. 13 meeting and discuss potential consequences, the newspaper said, citing an interview with supervisory board member Johannes Witt, one of the six labor representatives at the board. The panel also has 12 investor representatives, according to Euro am Sonntag.

Ruediger Assion, a spokesman for Deutsche Boerse, declined to comment. Witt didn’t immediately respond to a call from Bloomberg.
