SuperDerivatives is a market data and analytics provider specializing in derivatives pricing models, risk analysis and cloud-based market technology.[1] The company also has a chat platform similar to the one used on Bloomberg terminals.[2]

On September 5, 2014, IntercontinentalExchange, Inc. (ICE) announced its plan to buy SuperDerivatives for $350 million. The deal is expected to close in the 4th quarter of 2014.[3]


Background

SuperDerivatives was founded in 2000 by David Gershon, and as of 2014 has over 300 employees in 12 offices globally.[4] Gershon continues to serve as chairman and CEO.

The firm began as a data analytics firm for options markets. In 2004 it expanded into market data, publishing implied data from OTC markets.

In 2013, SDX Trading, a subsidiary of SuperDerivatives, filed with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to become a swap execution facility (SEF). Its application was still pending in September 2014 when ICE made its bid to acquire the firm. [5]

In May 2014, SuperDerivatives won the award for best derivatives data provider for the fourth year in a row at the Inside Market Data Awards.[6]
