Thomson to Acquire TradeWeb

The Thomson Corp. and privately held TradeWeb Group, LLC announced that they have signed a definitive agreement under which Thomson will acquire TradeWeb, an online global trading platform for fixed-income securities. Thomson will purchase TradeWeb for $385 million in cash plus contingent payments of up to approximately $150 million over the next 3 years based on the achievement of growth targets. The transaction is expected to close later this quarter.

TradeWeb is currently owned by a consortium of eight investment banks (Credit Suisse First Boston, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, and Deutsche Bank) and employs an Internet-based technology that provides premium fixed-income market data, rapid price discovery and speed to execute trades in seconds, enabling institutional fixed-income buy-side customers to simultaneously trade with multiple dealers around the world.

Through Thomson ONE Yield, Thomson Financial currently offers a suite of pre-trade analytical capabilities to the fixed-income marketplace. With Thomson ONE Yield integrated into TradeWeb's real-time trading platform, Thomson will be able to offer dealers and buy-side traders an electronic trading solution, from pre-trade analytics to post-trade confirmation.
