Stock exchange operator Euronext, the company behind the stock exchange in Amsterdam, among others, is still investigating a takeover of its Spanish counterpart BME. Euronext CEO Stéphane Boujnah again confirmed this in an interview with the French newspaper Le Figaro, but also said that no decision has yet been taken.
BME, fully Bolsas y Mercados Españoles, would fit well with Euronext, which is striving to become a pan-European stock exchange company. The stock exchanges in Belgium, France, Ireland, Norway and Portugal also belong to the company.
Shortly after Euronext showed its interest in BME last year, stock market operator SIX Swiss Exchange made an offer for the Spanish party. BME valued it at almost 3 billion euros.
