Item 8.01. Other Events.

On October 17, 2006, Chicago Mercantile Exchange Holdings Inc. (“CME”) and CBOT Holdings, Inc. (“CBOT”) issued a joint press release announcing that they had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) relating to the acquisition of CBOT by CME and the other matters described therein. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement and subject to the conditions thereof, CBOT stockholders will have the right to receive 0.3006 shares of CME Class A common stock per share of CBOT Class A common stock (the exchange ratio) or to elect an amount in cash per share equal to the value of the exchange ratio based on a ten day average of closing prices of CME common stock at the time of the merger. The cash portion of the consideration is subject to a $3 billion aggregate limit and will be subject to proration if cash otherwise payable would exceed that limitation. Subject to an affirmative vote by CME and CBOT stockholders, normal regulatory approvals and other closing conditions, the transaction is expected to close by mid-year 2007.

A copy of the joint press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The information required by Item 1.01 will be filed in a separate Current Report on Form 8-K.
