CME threatens move over state taxes

CME's Executive Chairman, Terry Duffy, said the company was exploring a potential move of its corporate base in response to a corporate tax hike in Illinois initiated earlier this year. The group has also recently received tax breaks from the City of Chicago.

He and other top executives of CME Group Inc. on Wednesday also acknowledged investor frustration with the exchange company's share price and promised to consider moves such as a special dividend or a stock split to improve it.
