NEW YORK,  Dec. 20, 2012  /PRNewswire/ --  Bernstein Liebhard LLP  is
investigating whether the Board of Directors of NYSE Euronext or the "Company"
(NYSE: NYX) breached its fiduciary duty to its shareholders in agreeing to sell
NYSE Euronext to IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE: ICE).

Under the terms of the agreement, NYSE Euronext shareholders will have the
option to elect to receive consideration per NYSE Euronext share of (i)  $33.12 
in cash, (ii) 0.2581 IntercontinentalExchange common shares or (iii) a mix of 
$11.27  in cash plus 0.1703 ICE common shares, subject to a maximum cash
consideration of approximately  $2.7 billion  and a maximum aggregate number of
