Commenting on today’s announcement, John Phizackerley, CEO of TP ICAP, said: “This deal creates the leading interdealer broker in the world. It is a transformational acquisition for TP ICAP, providing a unique opportunity to accelerate our strategy and deliver for our clients, our employees and our shareholders.”
Tullett Prebon announced its plans to acquire ICAP’s voice broking and information business for over £1 billion ($1.67 billion) last November, in which it would receive all of the associated technologies owned by ICAP including iSwap and Fusion, together with some of the company’s joint ventures and associates.
As reported by Finance Magnates in March this year, Tullett Prebon reaffirmed that the deal was entering its final stages, and that once all the approvals for the deal were received, it expected to complete the deal within the current calendar year.
