The FINANCIAL -- On December 17, the District Court of Rotterdam, The Netherlands, rendered its verdict in the appeal procedure between Euronext N.V. and Euronext Amsterdam N.V. against the Dutch Minister of Finance, substantially ruling in favour of Euronext.

The court has ruled that the new capital requirements imposed in the June 2014 license no longer apply and that the applicable license is the one of March 2014, according to Euronext.

Pursuant to this verdict, Euronext will maintain its dialogue with the Minister of Finance with a view to continue complying with all applicable requirements in the most transparent manner in order to best serve its clients. 

Trading on Euronext shares will resume shortly.
