S&P revises outlook on Cboe Global Markets following deal announcement

S&P Global Ratings affirmed the A- long-term issuer credit rating and senior unsecured ratings on Cboe Global Markets Inc. and revised the outlook on the issuer credit rating to negative from stable.

The ratings actions follow the announcement that Cboe Global Markets agreed to acquire European Central Counterparty NV

The affirmation of the ratings considers the low purchase price consideration for the deal and its small impact on projected EBITDA. S&P Global Ratings also does not see substantial upside to Cboe Global Markets' business risk profile materializing within the rating agency's two-year rating horizon.

The negative outlook reflects the potential for increased clearing risk as the two organizations work in the following months to boost EuroCCP's liquidity sources and resilience in a hypothetical "cover 2" stress scenario.
