On behalf of IntercontinentalExchange (ICE), the undersigned hereby respectfully requests that the company’s registration statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-186231), filed on January 25, including exhibits, be withdrawn from registration with the SEC pursuant to Rule 477 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Company and NYSE Euronext (NYX) have agreed in an amended and restated merger agreement, dated as of March 19, to revise the structure of their previously announced merger transaction to provide that the company will acquire NYSE Euronext under a newly formed holding company, IntercontinentalExchange Group to facilitate the implementation of the governance provisions that will be required to be put into effect in connection with the transaction. Pursuant to the amended and restated merger agreement, all outstanding shares of ICE common stock and certain outstanding shares of NYSE Euronext common stock will be converted into rights to receive shares of ICE Group common stock at the closing of the transaction. The company requests that the Commission consent to the withdrawal of the ICE Registration Statement since, under the revised merger structure, ICE will not be issuing securities in the proposed transaction. Instead, ICE Group will file a registration statement on S-4 to register the shares of ICE Group common stock to be issued in the transaction.

07:40 EDTICEBGC and GFI agree to sell Trayport to Intercontinental Exchange for $650M
BGC Partners (BGCP) and its majority-owned division, GFI Group (GFIG) announced that GFI has entered into an agreement to sell its Trayport business to Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) for $650M. Trayport is a provider of trading and aggregation software primarily in the global OTC energy and commodities markets. Trayport, which is domiciled in the UK, generated revenues of approximately $80M over the twelve months ended September 30, 2015. These revenues were predominantly generated via recurring software license and subscription fees. Trayport's revenues increased by approximately 9 percent year-on-year in British pounds during the third quarter of 2015. Under the terms of the purchase agreement, Intercontinental Exchange will acquire the equity of the companies that comprise the Trayport business. The GFI sellers will receive $650 million in ICE common shares based on the closing stock price on November 13, 2015. The aggregate number of ICE common shares is approximately 2.5 million, and up to approximately 0.8 million additional ICE common shares based on a sliding scale from $193.85 to $258.47 in the event that ICE's weighted average stock price over a specified period leading up to closing is less than $258.47. GFI will have the right to sell its ICE common shares pursuant to a registration rights agreement. ICE may elect to substitute cash for part or all of the stock consideration owed to the GFI sellers. The transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, including receipt of required regulatory approvals. The transaction is expected to close as early as the first quarter of 2016, subject to receipt of such approvals. After the close of the transaction, BGC and GFI are expected to remain customers of Trayport. The net tax the Company will pay with respect to the transaction is expected to be at a rate of 15 percent or less. The one-time gain will be reflected in BGC's consolidated results under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, but will be excluded from the Company's results for distributable earnings.

ICE anticipates an immaterial impact to 2016 adjusted earnings per share. The agreement was unanimously approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2016, subject to the completion of closing conditions and receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.
