D.Boerse head: NYSE tie up could include others-paper

* Deutsche Boerse aims to merge with NYSE Euronext

* CEO says tie-up could also include Spain, Swiss bourse

ZURICH, April 10 (Reuters) – The head of Deutsche Boerse
(DB1Gn.DE: Quote, Profile, Research) said the planned acquisition of NYSE Euronext (NYX.N: Quote, Profile, Research)
could be widened to include other players such as the Madrid
bourse (BME.MC: Quote, Profile, Research), a Swiss newspaper reported on Sunday.

“The main point of the targeted fusion with NYSE Euronext is
that each spot market remains independent,” Deutsche Boerse
Chief Executive Reto Francioni told Swiss newspaper NZZ am
Sonntag. “One could also include Spain or Switzerland.”

Deutsche Boerse and NYSE Euronext clinched plans jointly to
create the world’s largest bourse in February, a deal through
which the German operator will own 60 percent of the combined
group. The merger is part of a wave of tie-ups in the
increasingly competitive and global exchange world.

The merged group would dominate exchange-based European
derivatives trading, with operations spanning the United States,
Germany, France, Britain, the Netherlands, Portugal and Belgium.

Swiss exchange SIX has three joint ventures with Deutsche
Boerse: index operator Stoxx, derivates platform Scoach and
futures exchange Eurex.

The Madrid bourse Bolsas y Mercados (BME.MC: Quote, Profile, Research) is a standalone
operation and boasts strong trading turnover, with 70 percent
coming from overseas.
