On October 9, 2020, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) agreed to sell Milan’s Borsa Italiana stock exchange to Euronext NV for €4.33 billion ($5.1 billion). The annoucement of the sale came after the LSE reached definitive terms to purchase data provider Refinitiv for $27 billion. Refinitiv owns the bond-trading platform Tradeweb.

The sale of Borsa Italiana is dependent on the Refinitiv transaction, which is being reviewed by the European Commission, being approved and going through. The LSE expects to complete the Refinitiv deal by the end of 2020, or early 2021, with the Borsa Italiana transaction set to go through in the first six months of next year.
