12:59 EDTNYX, ICEICE to pay NYSE $750M if merger fails to gain antitrust clearance
In an SEC filing earlier this morning, potential penalties and other stipulations for both parties in the proposed IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) and NYSE Euronext (NYX) merger were outlined. Under the merger agreement, neither NYSE Euronext nor ICE may solicit competing proposals or, subject to exceptions that permit their respective boards of directors to take actions required by their fiduciary duties, participate in any discussions or negotiations regarding alternative business combination transactions. Either NYSE Euronext or ICE may terminate the merger agreement under certain specified circumstances, including if its respective board of directors determines in good faith that it has received a ďsuperior proposal," and the party that is not entering into the superior proposal will be entitled to a fee of $300M. In addition, in the event that either the NYSE Euronext board or the ICE board changes it recommendation under the terms of the merger agreement other than for a superior proposal, then the party changing its recommendation must pay the other $450M. In the case of a failure to obtain required antitrust clearances or regulatory approval prior to the termination date and subject to certain other conditions, the merger agreement provides for ICE to pay NYSE Euronext a $750M fee upon termination.

Intercontinental Exchange announced its intention to sell approximately 4.2M shares in Euronext N.V., representing approximately 6% of Euronextís share capital, by way of an accelerated book-building to institutional investors. Following the sale, assuming all shares are sold, ICE will no longer hold any of Euronextís share capital and voting rights. This transaction marks the final exit from Euronext by ICE, in line with its previously announced strategy. ICE received a waiver of the lock-up agreement entered into at the time of the Euronext initial public offering in June 2014, which was due to expire on December 21. The shares will be offered by way of a private placement to institutional investors. The book-building will commence immediately. ICE reserves the right to close the books at short notice. Pricing and allocations will be determined at the conclusion of the offering and are expected to be announced in a separate press release.
