Euronext says it is still in talks with Spanish bourse BME

PARIS, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Pan-European stock market operator Euronext is still in talks on a possible offer for Spanish peer BME, the Euronext chief executive told French website Boursorama on Thursday.

"We have discussions underway with the board of directors of BME over possibly producing an offer," Euronext Chief Executive Stephane Boujnah said on a webcast broadcast by Boursorama, declining to comment on any price envisaged for BME.

Euronext is battling against SIX Group, which has offered 2.84 billion euros ($3.2 billion) for BME.
