Germany's Deutsche Boerse in talks to buy U.S. options exchange ISE

German stock exchange operator Deutsche Boerse AG said Monday that it has reached an agreement to take over U.S.-based options exchange International Securities Exchange Holdings for US$2.8 billion (euro2.05 billion).
The Deutsche Boerse statement said International Securities shareholders would get US$67.50 (euro49.48) per share. The acquisition would make Deutsche Boerse a major player in the U.S. options trading business, since ISE is the largest options market in the U.S. for individual stocks, including stock-index options.
