12:59 EDTICE, NYXICE 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 “superior 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.

07:42 EDTICENYSE gets SEC approval for proposed rule changes
The New York Stock Exchange, on October 9, got final SEC approval for a rule change to amend its Rule 13 to allow an Add Liquidity Only modifier for day limit orders and to allow the day time-in-force condition and ALO modifier for Intermarket Sweep Orders. Analysts say the change allows the exchange to potentially gain ground on rivals that have long had the same deal, according to the New York Post, which quoted Haim Bodek as saying, “This is basically a blessing for exchanges to continue volume growth by accommodating HFT strategies and introducing asymmetry in the marketplace."
