Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing proposes merger with LSE

Sept 11 (Reuters) - Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited said on Wednesday it has made a proposal to the board of London Stock Exchange Group Plc to combine the two companies which values the LSE at about 29.6 billion pounds ($36.6 billion).

LSE in August agreed to buy financial information provider Refinitiv in a $27 billion deal aimed at offering trading across regions and currencies and establishing the British company as a rival to Bloomberg.
