Deutsche Boerse $9.53 Billion NYSE Buy May Spur Deals

Deutsche Boerse AG’s $9.53 billion all-stock purchase of New York Stock Exchange parent NYSE Euronext creates the world’s largest owner of equities and derivatives markets, and may spur additional mergers.

The deal, which gives Deutsche Boerse 60 percent of the combined entity, forms an organization with market share in futures that’s similar to Chicago-based CME Group Inc. It would also top CBOE Holdings Inc. of Chicago in U.S. options. Deutsche Boerse’s plan follows Singapore Exchange Ltd.’s October bid for ASX Ltd., which runs the Australian stock market, and London Stock Exchange Group Plc’s agreement last week to buy Canada’s TMX Group Inc.
