EU extends review of D.Boerse, NYSE deal

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - EU regulators have extended their review of Deutsche Boerse’s (DB1Gn.DE) bid to acquire NYSE Euronext NYX.N by just over a week to December 22, after the German exchange operator asked for more time to reply to regulatory concerns.

“The statement of objections is a substantial and long document, and we are analyzing it and preparing our response,” Deutsche Boerse said in a statement on Friday.

    “Given the complex issues involved and our desire to provide a full and comprehensive response to the Commission, we have asked for, and received, seven additional working days to provide our submission.”

    The European Commission sent the statement of objections -- a charge sheet setting out their concerns over the $9 billion deal -- to the companies on Oct 5.
