A proposed merger between Deutsche Borse and NYSE Euronext would bring a number of "significant strategic opportunities" it has been claimed.

The former firm's management and supervisory boards have urged acceptance of the offer, which could prompt a need for merger and acquisition consultants.

Commenting on the issue, Reto Francioni, chief executive of Deutsche Borse, claimed the pairing is in the company's best interests.

"The combination with NYSE Euronext will drive significant long-term value for all shareholders through superior cash flow generation, a strong balance sheet and a clear path to value creation," he asserted.

Similar comments were given by Manfred Gentz, who suggested the company's management is convinced of the benefits of the merger and reiterated the recommendation towards acceptance.

A global business model, product innovation and a better choice of technological and market information solutions were put forward as some of the deal's advantages.

Earlier in the year, EU competition commissioner Joaquin Almunia warned that the proposed deal could require greater regulatory scrutiny.
