On Wednesday, the European Commission vetoed a planned merger between Germany’s Deutsche Borse and the London Stock Exchange. That decision was quickly followed by a warning issued by Thomas Schaefer, finance minister for the Frankfurt financial district that regulates the German stock exchange: U.S. stock exchanges should not even think about submitting a bid to buy Deutsche Boerse.
"Deutsche Boerse is not only a private company but it also has state responsibilities." And, Mr. Schaefer added: "The stock exchange authorities of Germany have to guarantee that if there is a change of owner, it has to guarantee that business has to continue uninterrupted as normal and it doesn't matter who makes an offer."
