According to the details shared by Euronext Group, Nexi will continue to provide technology services to Euronext under transitional arrangements following the transaction. The purchase amount of the transaction, which will be paid in cash, stands at €57 million.

Stéphane Boujnah, the CEO and Chairman of the Managing Board at Euronext, said: “The planned acquisition of the technology assets driving MTS and Euronext Securities Milan is a key milestone in the Borsa Italiana Group integration process. At Euronext, owning the intellectual property of our critical operations is at the center of our strategy, to secure the robustness of our operations and enable further development and product innovation. We look forward to welcoming the new teams to the Euronext Group.”

The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals, is expected to close in the second half of 2022.

Renato Martini, the Digital Banking & Corporate Solutions Director at Nexi, said: “This sale, consistent with our strategy following the mergers with SIA and Nets, will allow us to focus further on our core business, digital payments, accelerating our growth in Europe and focusing on the realization of synergies.”
