Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, London and Paris – 6 May 2019 – Euronext, the leading pan-European exchange, announces today that it is amending its Offer to acquire Oslo Børs VPS’s outstanding shares by extending the Acceptance Period thereof.

Euronext currently awaits final approval from the Norwegian Ministry of Finance that is expected mid-May 2019.

Euronext also reconfirms that it will ensure that all remaining shareholders will get an opportunity to tender their shares to Euronext on the same terms in connection with or following such final regulatory approval and fulfilment of all offer conditions, through an extended, new or re-opened offer.
