Euronext and CDP Equity m confirm they have entered into exclusive talks with London Stock Exchange Group to acquire Borsa Italiana group, together with Intesa Sanpaolo. There can be no certainty that this will lead to a transaction.
The proposed combination of Borsa Italiana and Euronext would create a leading player in continental European capital markets. This transformational project would position the newly formed group to deliver the ambition of further building the backbone of the Capital Markets Union in Europe, while at the same time supporting local economies.
Italy, through Borsa Italiana, would become the largest revenue contributor to the enlarged Euronext group. As a new major country in the Euronext federal model, Italy would be represented at group level of Euronext governance by Italian representatives, in the Reference Shareholders, the Supervisory Board, the Managing Board and the College of Regulators supervising Euronext group’s activities.
