LSE-TMX Merger Not a ‘Defensive’ Move, Rolet Says, FT Reports

Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- London Stock Exchange Group Plc Chief Executive Officer Xavier Rolet said the merger between the LSE and TMX Group Inc. is the right deal for the U.K. bourse and wasn’t a “defensive” move, the Financial Times reported, citing remarks by Rolet.

The merger, which will form a company with a value of about $5 billion, is “much more transformational than people think” Rolet said, according to the Financial Times.
