Untitled[edit]

I think it's a good start. If a company is listed on Euronext do they still have a "home" exchange. e.g. if a Paris company is listed on Euronext, will the price it's traded at be seen in Belgium and Amsterdam? Also, how does it settle?

NYSE/DB bid[edit]

This section needs to be more encyclopeaedic, and not read like a running update. —Joseph/N328KF (Talk) 11:27, 23 May 2006 (UTC)


Paris based?[edit]

Quote from euronext.com: "Euronext N.V. is a Dutch public company with limited liability (naamloze vennootschap) which has its registered office in Amsterdam. Euronext N.V. has subsidiaries in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Portugal and the United Kingdom (together, “Euronext”). Euronext is entered in the trade register of the Chamber of Commerce of Amsterdam under number 34137761." Why it is called Paris Based? I cannot find anything that confirms that. (I guess Businessweek is wrong on this one.) (see http://www.euronext.com/editorial/wide/0,5371,1732_4436322,00.html)

Euronext, like many pan-European firms (EADS, Arcelor Mittal, etc.) are registered in Benelux with operational headquarters in other nations. It's a moot point; the headquarters and country of regstration will be in New York City shortly. —Joseph/N328KF (Talk) 02:37, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

merger or acquisition?[edit]

Here, it says Euronext is about to merge with NYSE, but in the NYSE article it says "NYSE Group is acquiring Euronext". I'm no economist, but that sounds like something completely different. Which is it? And if it's a mere technicality, could that be explained for laymen like me? DirkvdM 07:29, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

"Global exchange"[edit]

"Euronext merged with NYSE Group to form NYSE Euronext, the first global stock exchange." What exactly does this mean? It doesn't have a branch in every country, yet it isn't the first exchange to have branches in more than one country, either. I dont see what this statement means.

Controversy[edit]

I've been unable to find any corroboration for the assertion that the change to tick size is controversial. As such, the statement appears to be simply the opinion of the editor who added the comment. Clearly he is unhappy about the move, but that is not evidence that the move is unpopular with a sufficient number of people to be regarded as controversial. As it stands, this bit is WP:POV and WP:OR, and absent any evidence to support the assertion it should be removed. Mayalld 08:43, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Euronext N.V.[edit]

In order to avoid future confusion, these sources support that Euronext is in fact a Dutch company: [1] [2]. --Btsz (talk) 15:01, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

But the infobox says that it is located in Paris. What gives ? --Triwbe (talk) 16:58, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
The links I provided make it quite clear that Euronext is a Dutch legal entity. Furthermore, it is not impossible for a legal entity to have its headquarter in another country than where it was established.--Btsz (talk) 19:22, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
So the infobox needs changing. --Triwbe (talk) 06:46, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Main photo[edit]

Shouldn't the photo of the headquarters in Amsterdam be the main photo (with the other buildings being shown in the article)? To me it seems rather strange that a building other than the headquarters is shown. Robster1983 (talk) 18:15, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Edits made, deletion of banner[edit]

I have made several edits to this page over the past several weeks, have added additional sources and updated outdated information as well as making appropriate changes to the information since the acquisition of Euronext by Intercontinental Exchange. I therefore believe the banner is no longer required and should be removed. If someone feels differently, of course we can proceed to discuss if there are any further issues with the page.
