US DOJ approves merger of Deutsche Borse, NYSE Euronext

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) has approved the merger of Deutsche Borse and NYSE Euronext.

According to DOJ, clearance was contingent upon the International Securities Exchange (ISE),
a 100% owned by Eurex, agreeing to sell its 31.5% stake in Direct Edge, a US stock exchange.

In 2008 ISE partnered with Direct Edge when ISE equity market operations became a wholly owned subsidiary of Direct Edge.

The transaction, which is subject to the approval of the European authorities, will be submitted to the commission by 9 February 2012.
