Spotlight options on Altice S.A. promoted to standard segment, obtaining longer maturities

Amsterdam -  2 April 2015 – Euronext has expanded its Spotlight options offering with options on GrandVision N.V..

The contracts will have short-term maturities of one, two and three months.

In addition, Euronext intends to promote the existing Spotlight option class Altice S.A. to the standard options segment as of 1 May 2015.
