IntercontinentalExchange posts Q4 loss after costs from NYSE deal

NEW YORK, Feb 11 (Reuters) - IntercontinentalExchange Group Inc, the exchange and clearing house operator, reported a fourth quarter loss on Tuesday due in part to expenses from its $11 billion acquisition of NYSE Euronext and the drop in value of an investment in Brazil.

The net loss attributable to ICE was $176 million, or $1.83 a diluted share, compared with a profit of $130 million, or $1.76 a diluted share, a year earlier.
