generally; the possibility that the anticipated synergies and cost savings of
the merger will not be realized, or will not be realized within the expected
time period; the possibility that the merger may be more expensive to complete
than anticipated, including as a result of unexpected factors or events;
diversion of management's attention from ongoing business operations and

and fluctuations; actions taken or conditions imposed by the United States and
foreign governments or regulatory authorities; and adverse outcomes of pending
or threatened litigation or government investigations.  In addition, you

may affect future results of the combined company, as are described in the
section entitled "Risk Factors" in the joint proxy statement/prospectus filed
by ICE Group with the SEC, and as described in ICE's and NYSE Euronext's
