Update on the integration of Euronext Dublin

Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, London and Paris – 2 October 2018 – Euronext today announced an update on the integration of Euronext Dublin, of which Euronext completed the acquisition on 27 March 2018.

  • Migration to Optiq® for Euronext Dublin in February 2019

The migration of Euronext Dublin’s Cash Market to Euronext’s trading platform Optiq® is now planned in February 2019, subject to regulatory approval.

The migration to Optiq®, Euronext’s proprietary trading platform, will allow Euronext Dublin trading members and investors to benefit from access to trading across all cash equity asset classes available on Euronext’s pan-European exchanges. Euronext and Deutsche Börse will work together actively to ensure a smooth transition.

  • Upgraded cost synergies targets

As a result of the first successful integration steps, Euronext has identified additional cost-saving opportunities, and now expects to deliver €8 million (vs €6 million announced at the time of acquisition) in pre-tax run-rate cost synergies. As part of the integration, total costs of €14 million (vs €9 million announced at the time of acquisition) will be incurred in the first years of integration.

  • Signing of a termination agreement with Deutsche Börse for the migration of Euronext Dublin to Optiq®

Euronext has signed an agreement for the early termination of the trading services contract provided by Deutsche Börse AG to the Irish Stock Exchange (now operating as Euronext Dublin), initially due on December 2021. This agreement will contribute to approximately 50% of the announced €8 million in cost synergies. Furthermore, Euronext will recognise a €4 million impact from this settlement as an exceptional P&L expense in Q3 2018.
