Deutsche Börse AG and the shareholders of 360T Beteiligungs (360T), including Summit Partners 360, have signed a definitive agreement regarding the full acquisition of 360T by Deutsche Börse AG for a total EUR725 million.
360T is a leading global FX trading platform catering to a broad customer base including corporates, buy-side firms, and banks, with double-digit annual revenue growth since its inception in 2000. The acquisition by Deutsche Börse AG is expected to further accelerate 360T's organic growth trajectory. In addition, the combination will facilitate significant double-digit million Euro revenue synergies in the mid-term by utilising Deutsche Börse Group's international distribution capabilities and expertise.
Deutsche Börse AG plans to finance the acquisition via a combination of debt and equity, with the aim to minimise a potential impact on the credit rating. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to cash earnings per share without synergies and will meet customary ROI targets upon realisation of the mid-term synergy targets.
The completion of the transaction is subject to the approval by competition and supervisory authorities.
