Intercontinental Exchange Inc. (NYS:ICE) said Tuesday it agreed to sell its 9.9% stake in Brussels-based security settlement company Euroclear for a combined 709 million euros ($746 million) to two European buyers. ICE will sell a 5.42% stake in Euroclear to French, government-owned investment firm Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC) and 4.43% of its stake to Société Fédérale de Participations et d'Investissement SA (SFPI-FPIM), a Belgium government investment company. The sale comes after ICE in October announced its plan to sell the holding to Silver Lake, but during the approval process two other buyers emerged.
