If there was a problem,
Eight billion solves it,
Check out the NYX,
With debentures revolvin'.

ICE, ICE, baby, it's sold.
(For billions), ICE, ICE, baby, it's sold.

I hate this song enough to not attempt to change the lyrics to further the earworm.
 
Also I know nothing about stocks.

(Sorry, it was the only way to get the earworm out of my head.)

There's enough of a backstory here to do the whole song. Deutsche Bank tried early in 2011 to pick it up for $10B, ICE/OMX made a joint bid as white knights with an $11.3B bid on April Fool's Day, but dropped their sweetened bid 6 weeks later (due to antitrust concerns), DB's original bid also also got nixed (or is that NYXed?) on antitrust concerns, and now ICE comes back with a brand new invnew acquistion.

Because OMX isn't involved as a co-bidder this time, it might be enough to allay antitrust concerns, which means ICE could walk away with all of NYX for 2/3 of what they'd originally asked for part of it.

My losses stop, consolidate and listen,
ICE is back with a new acquisition...
