Peter Randall, former CEO of Chi-X Europe, is putting together a private-equity-led consortium to bid for the Euronext group of exchanges, sources say. IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) has said it would spin off the Euronext group as part of its $10.1B takeover of NYSE Euronext (NYX). Any bid is likely to face competition from NASDAQ OMX (NDAQ), Deutsche Boerse (DBOEY.PK, DBOEF.PK), and Six Group.
