¨Euronext introduces its first all-employee share grant

On 6 March 2020, Euronext announced its first Performance Share Plan granting free shares to all employees across the company, subject to approval by Euronext shareholders. As part of this award, every eligible Euronext employee will receive a grant of 10 performance shares, taking the percentage of beneficiaries of a performance share plan from 24% to 100 % of eligible Euronext employees.

This all-employee performance share grant will vest in three years and will enable all employees to fully share in the success of Euronext’s growth ambitions. It is the first award of its kind since the creation of Euronext in 2000, and consists of offering existing shares held in treasury, previously repurchased by Euronext.

The purpose of this grant is to continue building on the active participation of all Euronext employees in the company’s new strategic plan. This alignment is the pre-requisite for the inclusive success of Euronext, and fuels Euronext’s ESG ambitions for the financial industry.

¨Volumes in Q1 2020

For the first quarter of 2020, the average daily transaction value on the Euronext cash order book stood at €12,555 million, up

The average daily volume on Euronext FX’s spot foreign exchange market stood at $25,868 million in Q1 2020, up +30.8% compared to the same period last year.

¨Euronext’s Statement Regarding Bolsas y Mercados Españoles

On 18 November 2019, following press speculation regarding a potential offer from Euronext for Bolsas y Mercados Españoles (“BME”), Euronext confirmed that it was in talks with the Board of Directors of BME, “which may or may not lead to an offer being made”.

On 30 March 2020, after having reviewed in detail a potential offer for BME, analysed all the available facts and data, including market and competitive conditions, and after careful consideration, Euronext announced that it did not intend to make an offer for BME.

Euronext considers that the financial terms of a potential competing offer, despite the significant potential synergies, would not be compatible with value creation and adequate return on invested capital for Euronext shareholders.

¨Euronext appoints Georges Lauchard as Chief Operating Officer

On 16 March 2020, Euronext announced the appointment of Georges Lauchard as Chief Operating Officer and member of the Managing Board of Euronext N.V., pending all relevant corporate and regulatory approvals.

Georges Lauchard, who worked in capital markets throughout his international career, will oversee the Company’s operational strategy, policies, and execution in support of Euronext’s ambition to become the leading market infrastructure in Europe. He took up his new role based in Paris on 17 March 2020.

¨Covid-19 pandemic

In these challenging times, operating resilient, fair and orderly markets has never been more crucial. As the leading pan-European market infrastructure, Euronext has prepared for times like these. Euronext has invested heavily in technology, capacity and latency, and processes, particularly with the deployment of Optiq, the new Euronext state-of-the-art proprietary trading platform. These investments have proven their worth in the recent unprecedented trading environment.

Most Euronext staff are currently working from home whilst operating a fully functional infrastructure with no latency issues.

Euronext markets will remain open, because previous investments have secured their efficient functioning, because the Group can continue to operate while ensure the health and safety of its employees, and because appropriate adjustments, if and when needed, are implemented following a close dialogue with our clients and our regulators.

Euronext is maintaining a full system of ‘circuit breakers’, which enables trading in individual securities to be halted for a short period when price movements are too erratic. This avoids the need to halt the entire market, whilst allowing traders to pause and absorb the information flow. Circuit breakers are performing as they were designed to.

Stock exchanges are the key aggregation centres for natural flows of liquidity and play a key role in price formation. Euronext’s core mission is to finance the real economy and ensuring the efficient and transparent formation of prices. Euronext will continue to do so, despite the exceptional circumstances currently affecting Europe and the world at large.

Despite these challenging times, Euronext’s investments in technology will allow it to pursue the deployment of technology upgrades and the digitalisation of its processes to further enhance operating efficiency. As announced in February 2020, Euronext expects its operating costs excluding D&A to temporarily increase by a mid-single digit in 2020, compared to its second half 2019 annualised cost base8.

  • Acquisition of VP Securities, the Danish Central Securities Depository

On 23 April 2020, Euronext announced it has entered into definitive agreements to acquire c.70% of the shares of VP Securities  from its existing owners, the Danish Central Bank and four major Danish financial institutions, Danske Bank, Nykredit, Nordea and Jyske Bank. VP Securities is the Danish Central Securities Depository (CSD), covering fixed income, equity and investment funds, and a key infrastructure helping to finance Denmark’s real economy.  

Established in 1980 and headquartered in Copenhagen, VP Securities is fully integrated into the European post-trade framework. The company was the first Nordic CSD to be granted a CSDR licence and to join the European Central Bank’s Target 2 Securities (T2S) settlement system. VP Securities provides national issuers with core CSD services as well as value-added services to the ecosystem such as investor relations tools and sub-custody services. In 2019, the company generated DKK426m of revenue (~€57.1m) and generated an EBITDA of DKK125m (~€16.8m).

The price offered for 100% of the shares is DKK1.12bn (c. €150m ). Euronext will open an offer to all remaining shareholders, at the same terms and conditions. The transaction will be funded with existing resources. The acquisition of VP Securities is in line with Euronext’s disciplined capital deployment policy and commitment to maintain a strong investment grade credit rating.

Completion of the acquisition is expected by early Q3 2020 once regulatory approvals have been received.

The acquisition of VP Securities is an important step forward in Euronext’s strategy of strengthening its post-trade activities and expanding its presence in the Nordic region. The acquisition of VP Securities positions Euronext as a leading CSD operator in Europe with c.€2.2tn of assets under custody. Following this acquisition, post-trade will be a major contributor to Euronext revenues, significantly increasing the share of non-volume related revenue.
