(INTL), a provider of financial-services execution, risk management, market intelligence, and post-trade services, announced Wednesday that it has executed a sale and purchase agreement to acquire Carl Kliem S.A, of Luxembourg. INTL FCStone said its acquisition price is not material to the company.

Closing is conditional upon approval of the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier.
