ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

On January 12, 2008, NYSE Euronext, a Delaware corporation (“NYX”), and its indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary, TransactTools, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“TransactTools”), entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with (i) Wombat Financial Software, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Wombat”), (ii) Ronald B. Verstappen, Daniel Moore, ML IBK Positions, Inc. and the other stockholders of Wombat and (iii) Ronald B. Verstappen, as the representative of such stockholders. Pursuant to the terms and conditions in the Purchase Agreement, NYX will acquire 100% of the outstanding stock of Wombat by means of a stock purchase to be effected by TransactTools.

TransactTools will pay $200 million in total value to acquire Wombat. Specifically, at the closing of the transaction (the “Closing”), TransactTools will acquire each outstanding share of Wombat common stock for an amount of cash equal to the “Closing Payment” divided by the total number of outstanding shares of Wombat common stock plus the total number of shares of Wombat common stock underlying outstanding options and stock appreciation rights (“SARs”) (such quotient, the “Closing Per Share Payment Amount”). The “Closing Payment” is equal to $200 million, subject to (i) a deduction for amounts placed in escrow, (ii) adjustments so that TransactTools pays $3 million of transaction-related expenses of Wombat, (iii) adjustments based on net tangible assets of Wombat as of the Closing and (iv) an increase to reflect the aggregate exercise price of options and base value of SARs.

At the Closing, and in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, each option for, and each SAR based on, Wombat common stock will either be (i) exercised for Wombat common stock prior to Closing and therefore subject to the stock acquisition terms above, (ii) cancelled in exchange for a cash payment reflecting the Closing Per Share Payment Amount and the exercise price or base value, respectively, of such option or SAR or (iii) converted into an option for NYX common stock or a SAR based on NYX common stock, in each case reflecting the economic terms of the Closing Per Share Payment.

NYX will also issue at Closing restricted stock units to Wombat employees in an amount equal to $25 million.

The parties have agreed to customary representations and warranties, covenants and indemnification obligations.

The Closing is subject to various conditions, including (i) termination or expiration of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act and (ii) that the Securities and Exchange Commission shall not have taken or threatened to take any action that would impose any additional material obligation on NYX or that would subject NYX to any additional material regulatory oversight.

NYX has guaranteed certain obligations of TransactTools under the Purchase Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement filed as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference hereto in response to this Item 1.01. Further, on January 14, 2008, NYX issued a press release announcing NYX’s entry into the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1. The information in Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be incorporated by reference in any filing under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The Purchase Agreement has been included to provide investors with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about any of the parties thereto. The Purchase Agreement contains representations and warranties that each of the parties made to the others. The assertions embodied in those representations and warranties are qualified by information in confidential disclosure schedules that the parties have exchanged in connection with signing the Purchase Agreement. The disclosure schedules contain information that modifies, qualifies and creates exceptions to the representations and warranties set forth in the Purchase Agreement. Accordingly, investors should not rely on the representations and warranties as characterizations of the actual state of facts at the time they were made or otherwise.
