Background

Euronext was formed on September 22, 2000 in a merger of the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, Brussels Stock Exchange, and Paris Bourse, in order to take advantage of the harmonization of the European Union financial markets. In December 2001 Euronext acquired the shares of the London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange (LIFFE), which continues to operate under its own governance. Beginning in early 2003, all derivatives products traded on its affiliated exchanges trade on LIFFECONNECT, LIFFE's electronic trading platform.

The indices have a base date of December 31, 2001, with a starting level of 1000 points. Six NextWeather weather indices for France, launched in January 2002, are among the sector indices planned by Euronext. Exchange traded funds, called trackers, comprise Euronext's NextTrack product segment, and have been introduced on the AEX index, CAC 40 Index, DJ Euro Stoxx 50 Index, and various pan-European regional and sector indices. Euronext has introduced several commodity futures contracts, available to all constituents. Winefex Bordeaux futures are traded on Euronext Paris.

Euronext.liffe

Euronext.liffe was formed in January 2002 from the takeover of the London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange by Euronext. The derivatives activities of the other constituent exchanges of Euronext (Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon and Paris), were merged into Euronext.liffe. Trading is done electronically through the LIFFE CONNECT platform. Euronext.liffe offers a wide range of futures and option products on short-term interest rates, bonds, swaps, equities and commodities.


Volumes in 2004 were split as follows:
Interest Rate: 313.3 million contracts
Equities: 468.8 million contracts
Commodities: 8.0 million contracts


In addition to this, it sells its technology to third parties. Since April 2003, the Tokyo International Financial Futures Exchange (TIFFE) has run on LIFFE CONNECT. Furthermore, in January 2004, the Chicago Board of Trade started electronic trading using e-cbot, which is powered by LIFFE CONNECT. As a result, the Kansas City Board of Trade (KCBT), the Minneapolis Grain Exchange (MGEX) and the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange (WCE) use LIFFE CONNECT for their overnight trading.


Controversy

Euronext.Liffe intends to markedly change the exchanges for two of its most popular contracts, the Euroswiss and Short Sterling STIRs by halving the tick sizes (as with Euribor currently). This change is controversial. [citation needed]


Alternext

Alternext was formed in 2005 by Euronext to create a market for small and mid-class companies in the Eurozone to address the need of finding financement in a wider area. Since the merger of Euronext and NYSE since 2006, now completed in 2007, this market is now a division of NYSE Euronext, named NYSE Alternext. Alternext is an equity trading market that was opened May 17, 2005 by its parent institution Euronext to address an opportunity posed by small to medium sized firms that were anticipated to desire easier access to an equity market. ...


Merger with NYSE

Due to apparent moves by NASDAQ to acquire the London Stock Exchange[3], NYSE Group (owner of the New York Stock Exchange) offered 8 billion euros ($10.2b) in cash and shares for Euronext on May 22, 2006, outbidding a rival offer for the European Stock exchange operator from Deutsche Börse, the German stock market.[4] Contrary to statements that it would not raise its bid, on May 23, 2006, Deutsche Börse unveiled a merger bid for Euronext, valuing the pan-European exchange at US$11 billion (€8.6bn), €600 million over NYSE Group's initial bid. [5] Despite this, NYSE Group and Euronext penned a merger agreement, subject to shareholder vote and regulatory approval. The initial regulatory response by SEC chief Christopher Cox (who was coordinating heavily with European counterparts) was positive, with an expected approval by the end of 2007.[6] The new firm, tentatively dubbed NYSE Euronext, would be headquartered in New York City, with European operations and its trading platform run out of Paris. NYSE CEO John Thain, who would head NYSE Euronext, intends to use the combination to form the world's first global stock market, with continuous trading of stocks and derivatives over a 21-hour time span. In addition, the two exchanges hope to add Borsa Italiana (the Milan stock exchange) into the grouping. NASDAQ in Times Square, New York City. ...

Deutsche Börse dropped out of the bidding for Euronext on November 15, 2006, removing the last major hurdle for the NYSE Euronext transaction. A run-up of NYSE Group's stock price in late 2006 made the offering far more attractive to Euronext's shareholders.[7] On December 19, 2006, Euronext shareholders approved the transaction with 98.2% of the vote. Only 1.8% voted in favor of the Deutsche Börse offer. Jean-François Théodore, the Chief Executive Officer of Euronext, stated that they expected the transaction to close within three or four months.[8] Some of the regulatory agencies with jurisdiction over the merger had already given approval. NYSE Group shareholders gave their approval on December 20, 2006.[9] The merger was completed on April 4, 2007, forming the NYSE Euronext. is the 319th day of the year (320th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

cbs11tv.com - Euronext Investors Back NYSE Merger (428 words)
In the days preceding the vote, the NYSE and Euronext had won support from former critics of the deal including the Dutch government and Paris Europlace, an influential French business group.
The head of Paris Europlace, which initially opposed both the NYSE offer for Dutch-registered Euronext and a competing bid from Deutsche Boerse - since withdrawn - also said on the eve of the vote that he was "satisfied" with concessions offered by the U.S. stock exchange operator.
Euronext broke off talks with Deutsche Boerse earlier this year, blaming the Frankfurt exchange operator's refusal to spin off its clearing and settlement units or accommodate Euronext's "federal" model - under which the rules of each market are governed by its local regulator.
