Euronext Division Is Not for Sale, NYSE’s Duncan Niederauer Says

January 16, 2013

NYSE Euronext, the exchange operator that agreed to be bought by IntercontinentalExchange Inc. (ICE:US), said its European business Euronext is not for sale.

NYSE has been meeting with regulators and investors since announcing last month it would be acquired by Atlanta-based ICE, said Chief Executive Officer Duncan Niederauer in a Bloomberg Television interview. While it is still early in the review process, there are no plans to sell the Euronext business, he said.

ICE, the 12-year-old energy and commodity futures exchange, said Dec. 20 it would pay $33.12 for each share of New York- based NYSE to take control of the world’s biggest equity market. The deal is set to close in 2013.
