By 1995, the Madrid Stock Exchange had replaced CATS with the Sistema de Interconexión Bursátil Español (SIBE), a more modern electronic trading system developed by the MSE. SIBE connects the four Spanish stock exchanges (Madrid, Valencia, Bilbao and Barcelona) to form a unified, continuous market, providing price information and other data in real time.
