The Intercontinental Exchange said on Monday that it had agreed to buy the Interactive Data Corporation, a big publisher of financial data, for about $5.2 billion, the exchange’s biggest takeover since acquiring the New York Stock Exchange.
The offer from ICE, as the Intercontinental Exchange is known, is roughly 70 percent in cash and the remainder in stock.
