BATS Adds Backers

Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan have each taken minority positions in BATS Trading Inc., a Kansas City-based electronic exchange. No financial terms were disclosed for the deals, which were done separately. BATS last year raised $45 million in second-round funding from Citigroup, after having originally launched in 2005 with around $40 million from Credit Suisse, Getco, Lehman Brothers, Lime Brokerage, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley and Wedbush.
