FRANKFURT AM MAIN, GERMANY– 360T Group, the leading global provider of a multi-bank, multi-asset trading platform, announced today that Deutsche Börse Group has signed a definitive agreement to buy the company for a total purchase price of 725 million Euro. The completion of the transaction is subject to regulatory and anti-trust approval.

This strategic step will position 360T for continued strong global growth on a new scale, whilst it enables Deutsche Börse Group to enter the growing and attractive FX market. Furthermore, the deal teams have identified a full range of unique market-based revenue synergies that will strengthen both companies in terms of further competitive advantages.

The transaction represents one of the largest Fintech deal recorded in 2015 so far as measured by transaction volume, making 360T the most valuable Fintech company in Germany. 360T has recorded double digit annual growth figures since its inception. Investors who have supported to pave the way for 360T’s extraordinary success include the German mid-cap private equity firm Brockhaus Private Equity and the US firm Summit Partners.

Carlo Kölzer said: “We are delighted to take the exciting leap forwards to the next game level with one of the most important international exchanges in the world. This deal is creating the exclusive constellation to leverage 360T’s deep and unique industry position, including its wide customer base, with the scale and strength of Deutsche Börse Group.”

“The new FX industry logic of trading and vertical integration with an exchange will bring tremendous value in terms of width in trading styles and depth of settlement and clearing – creating the potential to revolutionize the FX market. We are looking forward to lift the opportunities created by this deal for all parties”, he added.

360T was advised on the transaction by Hengeler Mueller and Jeffries LLC.
