The SEC approved the NYSE Euronext rebranding of NYSE Alternext US to NYSE Amex on Friday, March 6, 2009. NYSE Euronext completed its acquisition of the American Stock Exchange (Amex) on October 1, 2008 and post merger renamed the Amex Equities SRO to NYSE Alternext US LLC, while the options business was rebranded as NYSE Amex Options. The impetus for the name change to NYSE Amex was driven by a desire to simplify our naming conventions by rebranding all Amex assets under one name as well as by feedback from our issuer, trading and customer communities.
We do not anticipate the name change to NYSE Amex to require any operational changes from our members and member firm community.
