NASDAQ/ICE continue to press their case for merger directly to the NYSE Euronext shareholders, issuing a letter today asking:
What's the Rush?
-- Why are NYSE Euronext stockholders being asked to approve a high-risk, low-value transaction without all of the facts?
-- Why is your board rushing you into a vote?
NYSE Euronext shareholders as of today's date will be eligible to vote on the merger with Deutsche Boerse at a special shareholders meeting scheduled for July 7.
-- And why are they refusing to even meet with NASDAQ OMX and ICE to explore a clearly financially superior alternative?
