Under the terms of the proposed deal valued at approximately $8 billion, NYX shareholders will only receive consideration valued at $33.12 for each share of NYX stock owned. Specifically, shareholders will have the option to elect to receive (i) $33.12 in cash; (ii) 0.2581 IntercontinentalExchange common shares; or (iii) a mix of $11.27 in cash plus 0.1703 ICE common shares.

The NYX sale investigation centers on whether NYX's shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues NYX's stock, and whether NYX's board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “the proposed sale price, the size of the deal and other factors lead us to believe that this transaction may undervalue NYX's stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.” The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC is a full service business litigation and shareholder rights advocacy firm with more than 20 years of experience in complex litigation and transactional matters.
