LSE eyes up Warsaw market

The London Stock Exchange is mulling a takeover of the Warsaw Stock Exchange, in a move which would throw it into battle with its three biggest rivals. NYSE Euronext, Nasdaq OMX and Deutsche Borse are also considering a bid for the Polish stock exchange, which would offer the opportunity to increase market share in central Europe. Polish officials are thought to be looking at offers for the 75 per cent stake in the Warsaw market which values it at around £400m.
