ICE to Buy Black Knight

Last week, NYSE and Ellie Mae owner ICE announced it will acquire Black Knight in a deal valuing the mortgage-lending software and data analytics firm at $13.1 billion. Now ICE must convince regulators that the acquisition will not harm competition in the mortgage tech solutions market.
