We now have the flexibility to exploit strategic opportunities in pursuit of our primary objective - maximising shareholder value."

"Following our recent approach to LIFFE, we are disappointed that its Board did not share our bold vision for the future, however we are engaged in other opportunities to broaden the scope and scale of our business both organically and through corporate transactions."
