- The London Stock Exchange said that it remained committed to and continued to make 'good' progress on its proposed acquisition of Refinitiv. The update comes after Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing dropped its £32bn offer for the London Stock Exchange.

Regulatory approval processes were underway and shareholder approval for the Refinitiv transaction was expected to be sought at an extraordinary general meeting in November 2019, the company said.

The transaction remained on track to close in the second half of 2020, it added.
