Mercado Termine de Buenos Aires / ROFEX

Mercado a Término de Buenos Aires S.A. (MATba) has completed a US$275 million merge with ROFEX S.A., creating the largest futures exchange in Argentina.
MATba is the leading agricultural futures and options exchange in Latin America. Founded in 1907, it was the first market to be established in the continent, rapidly becoming a reference worldwide for some of its contracts.
Founded in 1909, ROFEX is the main financial futures and derivatives exchange in Argentina.
MATba and Rofex started an integration process more than two years ago and with MATba shareholders’ approval during an extraordinary shareholders meeting held last December. Marcos Hermansonn, MATba Chairman and future MATba-Rofex Vice-chairman, thanked the shareholders for their decision “as this demonstrates once again the significant importance that they give to a transcendent and vital decision to generate a large futures market in the Argentine Republic.”
Andres Ponte, ROFEX Chairman and future MATba-Rofex Chairman, added: “This is great news in a difficult macroeconomic situation. We have managed to integrate two cultures in order to strengthen the Argentine capital market.”
Oaklins’ team in Argentina acted as the exclusive financial advisor in this transaction
