StockMarketWire.com - Bourse operator London Stock Exchange said it had entered into exclusive talks to sell Italian exchange group Borsa Italiana to Euronext.

The company confirmed it had received and reviewed a number of proposals from several parties for each of MTS and Borsa Italiana as a whole.

'Any potential sale will be dependent upon the outcome of the European Commission's review of the Refinitiv transaction and that transaction closing in accordance with its terms,' it added.
