10:49 EDTNYX, BRK.A, ICENYSE received counter-bid with value below ICE offer, reportedly from Berkshire
In a regulatory filing this morning, IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) disclosed that during the run-up to its agreement to merge with NYSE Euronext (NYX), NYSE's advisers initiated contact with representatives of a large industrial and financial holding company, identified in the filing as “Company A,” that they believed would be interested in NYSE Euronext’s businesses. Company A presented an indicative proposal with a value lower than the ICE proposal, according to the filing, and Company A's proposal also required that NYSE Euronext must first sell its European derivatives business for a specified minimum price. According to CNBC's David Faber, Company A described in the filing is Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A). In the filing, IntercontinentalExchange also said the agreed upon merger with NYSE is subject to the merger control jurisdiction of the national competition authorities in Portugal, Spain and the U.K. The companies stated they intend to request a referral of the merger to the European Commission, such that merger clearance is required from only the European Commission in the EU. ICE and NYSE expect to submit the notification form to the European Commission during the first half of 2013, the filing said. In morning trading, NYSE Euronext shares were virtually unchanged, while IntercontinentalExchange was up 18c, or 0.13%, to $135.00.
