investors have committed to buy 25-30 percent of Euronext ahead
of a market listing expected to value the company at 1-1.5

matter said on Tuesday.
The consortium of anchor investors comprises BNP Paribas
, Societe Generale, France's Caisse des
Depots, ING, ABN Amro, Banco
Espirito Santo, as well as Belgium's SFPI and Belfius.
