LSEG All Share Acquisition of Refinitiv - Borsa Italiana Group Update

Further to the announcement on 31 July 2020 regarding MTS and Borsa Italiana group, London Stock Exchange Group plc (LSEG) received and reviewed a number of competitive proposals from several parties for each of MTS and the Borsa Italiana group as a whole. LSEG confirms it has now entered into exclusive discussions with Euronext N.V. in relation to the sale of the Borsa Italiana group.

There can be no certainty that a transaction will result from these discussions and any potential sale will be dependent upon the outcome of the European Commission's review of the Refinitiv transaction and that transaction closing in accordance with its terms.
