Report: Singapore Exchange eyes tie-ups with overseas operators

Singapore Exchange Ltd. is eyeing more tie-ups with overseas exchange operators, including a potential sale of a stake in the company, Bloomberg News reported March 30, citing "people familiar with the matter."

The stock exchange operator has reportedly held exploratory talks with other operators, including Nasdaq Inc. and CME Group Inc. SGX is said to be considering a variety of options for potential tie-ups, such as collaborations, a possible stake sale or even a full merger, the people said.

SGX has not hired any advisers and has not made any formal decision on how to proceed, the people added. It is unclear if the talks are still ongoing.

Any potential stake acquisition in SGX would give overseas operators a stronger footing in Asia but an outright sale is complicated given the stringent regulatory oversight on such deals.

Representatives from SGX, Nasdaq or CME declined to comment, Bloomberg reported.
