Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), the leading global network of exchanges and clearing houses, announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement with ULLINK, a provider of electronic trading and connectivity solutions to the financial community, for the combined sale of NYFIX and Metabit, both units of NYSE Technologies.

The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval, is expected to close in the third quarter of 2014. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"This agreement completes our stated goal of taking certain stand-alone NYSE Technologies businesses and positioning them with other leading technology companies that can enable them to continue to grow and innovate on a global scale," said Ben Jackson, President and Chief Operating Officer, ICE Futures U.S. and President, NYSE Technologies. "With more than one thousand firms and order execution venues connecting to NYFIX and Metabit from key trading venues around the world, we are committed to working effectively with the ULLINK team to support this transition."

NYFIX offers a portfolio of end-to-end technology solutions for the financial services industry with FIX-based products designed to handle a firm's high-performance messaging, connectivity, routing and monitoring needs. NYFIX Marketplace™ is a global community of more than 1,000 trading counterparties with connections to exchanges and other electronic trading venues, including Metabit's extensive reach in Asia.

Metabit's operates a collection of electronic trading and connectivity solutions, including Direct Market Access (DMA) capabilities that enable access to financial markets throughout Asia. Based in Japan and built on cutting-edge technology designed in Asia for Asian markets, Metabit links more than 140 market participants in the region.

This agreement completes Intercontinental Exchange's previously announced intention to divest certain non-exchange related assets of NYSE Technologies.

Evercore is acting as the exclusive financial advisor and Shearman & Sterling LLP as legal advisor to Intercontinental Exchange on this transaction.
