CBOE-Bats merger could mean cost cuts
from Crain's Chicago Business
A CBOE Holdings acquisition of Bats Global Markets could jump-start its sagging growth rate, but it might mean cost-cutting at its Chicago headquarters — at least in the short term. CBOE, which owns and operates the Chicago Board Options Exchange and the smaller electronic C2 exchange, is reportedly announced plans to buy rival Lenexa, Kan.-based Bats this morning. A spokesman for Bats declined comment, and CBOE didn't respond to requests for comment.
