ATLANTA, Oct. 30, 2013

ATLANTA, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE: ICE), a
leading operator of global markets and clearing houses, today provided the
following statement and timeline for completing its acquisition of NYSE

ICE and NYSE Euronext have postponed the closing date of their previously
announced merger transaction from November 4, 2013 to a later date to be
announced to allow additional time for relevant European regulators and
ministries to process and issue their approvals. As previously announced, ICE
and NYSE Euronext have received a letter from the Chairmen's Committee of the
Euronext College of Regulators, which includes each individual regulator of
the Euronext markets, indicating that it is "not minded to object" to ICE's
proposed acquisition. ICE and NYSE Euronext are awaiting receipt of the
remaining national regulatory approvals, which they expect to receive in the
coming days, and anticipate closing the proposed transaction within two
business days after receipt of the final regulatory approval. Neither ICE nor
NYSE Euronext anticipates any substantive issues being raised in the context
of these remaining European national approvals.

ICE and NYSE Euronext have not extended the election deadline for shareholders
of NYSE Euronext to make merger consideration elections of stock and/or cash
consideration, which remains 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 31,
2013, with such election deadline being fixed unless extended by ICE through
further public announcement. Shareholders of NYSE Euronext who hold shares
through a financial intermediary such as a bank, broker, trust company or
other nominee may have an earlier election deadline and should carefully
review any instructions received from their bank, broker, trust company or
other nominee in order to comply with any earlier deadline. Shareholders of
NYSE Euronext with questions regarding the election procedures or materials
should contact their financial intermediary, or Georgeson Inc., the
information agent for the transaction, at 888-566-8006 (toll free in the
United States) or 781-575-2137 (outside the United States).
