M&A Activity Sparks Into Life Among Global Exchange Groups As FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index Up By 5.4% In January, Brazil's B3 Up by 24.9%

Date 08/02/2019

M&A activity among global exchanges flickered into life at the end of 2018 when large shareholders in Oslo Bors pitched to be bought out by Euronext. In mid January Euronext launched a formal bid to acquire Oslo Bors. The flickering M&A flame became more intense when at the end of January Nasdaq made an offer to acquire Oslo Bors, setting it on a collision course with Euronext. Oslo Børs's board considers Nasdaq's offer the best alternative for all stakeholders and unanimously recommends that shareholders accept the offer and not accept Euronext's.

Shares in the world's largest exchange operating groups rose by 5.4% in January, with 22 of the 28 constituents of the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index being in positive territority.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of exchanges performance closed at 52,079.51 on 31 January 2019.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index best performer by capital returns in US dollars was Brazil's B3 SA with a 24.9 per cent increase in share price from 31 December 2018 to 31 January 2019. The next best performer was Moscow Exchange with a 22.5 per cent increase, followed by Bolsa Mexicana de Valores SAB de CV with a 18.1 per cent increase over the same period.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was Multi Commodity Exchange of India with a 6.0 per cent decrease in share price from 31 December 2018 to 31 January 2019. This was followed by the Cboe Global Markets with a 4.7 per cent decline and India's BSE with a 3.3 per cent decrease over the same period.

Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and also Co-founder of the Index said:

“January saw a new competitive entrant to the U.S. equities exchange landscape, as a group of leading retail broker-dealers, banks, financial services firms, and market makers fed up with the fees charged for connectivity to exchange servers and market data plan to start their own trading venue, called Members Exchange, or MEMX. I doubt whether MEMX will bother the incumbents much. If history repeats itself, the insurgent will be absorbed eventually.”
