Australian software company denies joint offer with Macquarie Bank

The Australian software company Computershare does not want to invest in the British stock exchange operator London Stock Exchange (LSE). The company has no interest in participating, not even with a partner, said corporate spokesman Darren Murphy on Friday in Sydney. He rejected media reports that Computershare, together with the investment bank Macquarie Bank, could bid for the LSE.

Macquarie Bank, also based in Australia, has expressed interest in the London Stock Exchange, but has not yet made an offer. Since the unsuccessful takeover attempt by Deutsche Börse a few months ago, there has been speculation about a purchase of the British stock exchange. The European stock exchange operator Euronext is also one of the interested parties.

Computershare sees itself as one of the world's leading financial and IT service providers for the international securities industry. The group offers services for companies, investors and stock exchanges. (APA / dpa)
