MarketAxess to acquire Xtrakter from EuroClear

MarketAxess Holdings has agreed to acquire Xtrakter Limited, a provider of regulatory transaction reporting, financial market data and trade matching services to the European securities markets for GBP26 million. Xtrakter is a wholly owned subsidiary of Euroclear SA/NV.

Rick McVey, Chief Executive Officer of MarketAxess, says: “Xtrakter is a strong fit with our business and provides MarketAxess with an expanded set of services that are highly complementary to our core strengths in electronic trading, market data and straight-through processing solutions for the global credit markets.  Xtrakter is a leading provider of regulatory trade reporting to the UK Financial Services Authority and other similar Continental European authorities and is well positioned to play a key role in the UK and other European markets as regulators look to reduce trade settlement risk and increase market transparency under the proposed MiFID II mandate.”

Tim Howell, Chief Executive Officer of Euroclear, says: “Xtrakter colleagues and clients will find an innovative and strong team at MarketAxess who are eager to move quickly and assertively to develop the portfolio of Xtrakter services to meet changing market needs. Post acquisition, we will continue working with Xtrakter and MarketAxess to deliver further transparency and efficiency to the international capital markets.” 

Closing of the transaction is subject to satisfaction of certain conditions, including FSA regulatory approval. MarketAxess currently expects to complete the acquisition of Xtrakter in the first quarter of 2013.
