Shareholders approve CME's Nymex takeover

The cash and share deal, announced in March, values Nymex at $8.3 billion, and will see Nymex members bought out for $750,000 each.

Nymex members finally approved the takeover after six months of wooing from CME, culminating in the decision last month to raise the buyout payment from $612,000. The deal should close at the end of this week, opening the way for a predicted $60 million in cost cuts - which could include job losses at the New York exchange.
