Deutsche Börse rages against EC blocking decision

Deutsche Börse CEO Reto Francioni has pulled no punches in his reponse to the decision announced yesterday by the European Commission to block a merger with NYSE Euronext.

Francioni said in a letter that the decision was “wrong” and marked a “black day for Europe and for its future competitiveness on global financial markets”.

However, as a result of the decision, Deutsche Börse would continue to look for opportunities on its own, particularly in regions outside Europe.
