    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.

    Moody's places the senior rating of Nasdaq OMX (NDAQ) on review for a possible downgrade following NDAQ's announcement that it will acquire the eSpeed trading platform from BGC Partners (BGCP) for $750M in cash plus stock expected to be delivered over the next 15 years.

    Nasdaq OMX's (NDAQ) current cheap valuation in relation to peers may have to do with investor perception it's just a stock exchange. This leaves out derivatives, market data, issuer services, technology, and broker services. A sum-of-the-parts analysis puts the stock's valuation at $54 (currently $31), while BMO conservatively pegs takeout value at $38.

    With NYSE Euronext getting hitched to ICE, Nasdaq (NDAQ) has been exploring its own options. Not only has the exchange held unsuccessful talks with private-equity firm Carlyle (CAG) about a buyout, it has held discussions with two other P-E companies as well, and with CME (CME) about partnerships around technology and indexes, but not more than that.

    Nasdaq OMX (NDAQ +4.2%) pops after Charlie Gasparino reports the firm had recent discussions with Carlyle Group (CG) about a going-private deal. One source says no talks are currently underway and the earlier talks were strictly preliminary, with price being the main sticking point (it usually is).

    NYSE Euronext (NYX) doesn't intend to sell Euronext and will instead continue with its plan to spin off of the unit as part of Big Board's $8.2B acquisition by IntercontinentalExchange (ICE), NYSE CEO Duncan Niederauer has said. NYSE has reportedly received interest for Euronext, which could be valued at an estimated $1.39B in an IPO, from Nasdaq OMX (NDAQ) and the London Stock Exchange Group.

    IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) is back in talks with NYSE Euronext (NYX) and could announce a full takeover of the Big Board as soon as tomorrow, multiple sources are reporting. ICE (worth about $9.3B) was part of a combined bid with Nasdaq OMX (NDAQ) for NYX (worth about $5.8B) last year that came apart under antitrust scrutiny; this deal would likely be a mix of stock and cash. NYX +12.3% AH; ICE +2.9%.

    Analysts shed few tears over NYSE Euronext's (NYX -0.4%) failed merger with Deutsche Boerse (DBOEY.PK). UBS believes NYX shares could enjoy a short-term lift with investors coming off the sidelines as deal uncertainty ends. CLSA thinks it "may be for the best, [seeing] upside from less exposure to Europe and a potential transaction tax." NDAQ +0.2%, CME +2.1%, ICE +0.5%.
