ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

In March 2007, NYSE Euronext established a $3.0 billion global commercial paper program for the issuance of unsecured commercial paper in the United States and European capital markets. On April 2, 2008, in connection with the anticipated expiration of a $1.0 billion portion of the liquidity backstop to the global commercial paper program, NYSE Euronext refinanced this portion of the liquidity backstop by entering into a $1.0 billion 364-day Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) by and among NYSE Euronext as borrower, the lenders party thereto, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent for the lenders, and the other financial institutions party thereto as agents.

The Credit Agreement will be used as a liquidity backstop for NYSE Euronext’s global commercial paper program as well as for general corporate purposes. On the effective date no borrowings were funded under the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement includes a term-out option, under which NYSE Euronext may extend the revolving loans into a one-year term loan on the commitment termination date.

NYSE Euronext may elect to have revolving loans under the Credit Agreement borrowed in various currencies, including U.S. dollars, English pounds sterling, or Euros, with various interest rate options. In addition, NYSE Euronext will pay a facility fee ranging from 0.03% to 0.06% of the committed amount under the Credit Agreement, based on the credit ratings of NYSE Euronext’s senior, unsecured, long-term indebtedness without any credit support.

The Credit Agreement is unsecured and contains customary representations and warranties (including, but not limited to, those relating to organization and authorization and compliance with laws), customary affirmative covenants (including, but not limited to, delivery of financial statements), negative covenants relating to liens and fundamental changes, and customary events of default (including, but not limited to, monetary defaults, covenant defaults, and bankruptcy events), but does not contain a financial covenant.

The description of the Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

NYSE Euronext continually reviews its financial and debt policy and, subject to market conditions and credit and strategic considerations, may from time to time determine to vary the maturity profile of its debt and diversify its sources of financing.

This Form 8-K may contain forward-looking statements, including forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements concerning NYSE Euronext’s plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements that are not historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements are based on NYSE Euronext’s current expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause NYSE Euronext’s results to differ materially

from current expectations include, but are not limited to: NYSE Euronext’s ability to implement its strategic initiatives, economic, political and market conditions and fluctuations, government and industry regulation, interest rate risk and U.S. and global competition, and other factors detailed in NYSE Euronext’s reference document for 2006 (“document de référence”) filed with the French Autorité des Marchés Financiers (Registered on June 6, 2007 under No. R.07-0089), 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K and other periodic reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or the French Autorité des Marchés Financiers. In addition, these statements are based on a number of assumptions that are subject to change. Accordingly, actual results may be materially higher or lower than those projected. The inclusion of such projections herein should not be regarded as a representation by NYSE Euronext that the projections will prove to be correct. This Form 8-K speaks only as of this date. NYSE Euronext disclaims any duty to update the information herein.
