Euronext is valued at EUR1.33 billion to EUR1.75 billion on the basis of the indicative price range.
The IPO will comprise a public offering to institutional and retail investors in Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Portugal and a private placement to certain institutional investors in various other jurisdictions.
It will offer up to 42,108,230 shares, representing up to 60.15 per cent of the capital of the company.

Euronext’s role in supporting the real economies of Europe will be further strengthened by our independence and we believe that we are well positioned to develop our markets across Europe, by optimising our underexploited businesses and repositioning as a leading capital raising centre.”
