Negotiation techniques need by NYSE Euronext?
The New York Stock Exchange is in talks about merging with Deutsche Boerse.
Merger and acquisition consultants could be on the cards after the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Euronext agreed a deal with Deutsche Boerse.
Some 96 per cent of NYSE Euronext's shareholders voted in favour of the move, which means that with 75 per cent acceptance from the German company, the agreement can be completed.
Reto Francioni, chief executive officer of Deutsche Boerse, remarked: "The shareholders of NYSE Euronext have clearly voted in favour of the growth perspectives and the value potential."
He added it was now up to those who have a say in his firm to make their choice.
People have until July 13th to ask for their current shares to be turned into those in a new holding company.
Should the deal be rubberstamped, it would be the biggest stock exchange operator in the world.
A range of negotiation techniques could be required to ensure the arrangement passes smoothly.
