Oct 23 (Reuters) - The London Stock Exchange said on Friday it expects to close its $27 billion purchase of data analystics firm Refinitiv in the first quarter of 2021 and posted a 2% increase in third-quarter total income.
LSE, which this month agreed the sale of Borsa Italiana as part of remedies to appease European competition regulators, also said it was well positioned for Brexit.
