Bulgaria's stock exchange acquires energy bourse IBEX

SOFIA, Feb 5 (Reuters) - The Bulgarian Stock Exchange BSE , majority controlled by the state, has finalised a 5.2 million levs ($3.3 million) deal to acquire the Balkan country’s energy exchange IBEX after receiving all regulatory approvals, it said on Monday.

State-owned energy holding BEH pledged to transfer the control of the day-ahead power exchange, setup in early 2016, as part of a settlement with the EU over antitrust charges that it blocked rivals in the Bulgarian wholesale power market.
