NASDAQ OMX at a glance
 
NASDAQ OMX is the world's largest exchange company. It delivers trading, exchange technology and public company services to more than 3,600 listed companies across six continents. NASDAQ OMX technology supports the operations of over 70 exchanges, clearing organizations and central securities depositories in more than 50 countries.
 
The structure and condition of world markets have changed dramatically in the past decade, especially in the last few years. Today's premier markets are increasingly transparent, highly competitive, and highly attuned to customer needs. Many corporations and broker dealers are global in scope and scale, and to respond to their needs, exchanges have become global as well.
 
NASDAQ OMX works on a daily basis to support all its corporate clients with innovative thinking,  sharing of information and joint marketing activities.
 
Our listing proposition for companies is truly global.
 
In the US, the NASDAQ OMX group owns the NASDAQ Stock Market, the Philadelphia Exchange and the Boston Exchange. The NASDAQ Stock Market offers companies around the world a gateway to US institutional and retail investors. A listing means that the shares of that company are traded on one of the world's fastest electronic trading platforms, which is highly efficient for all investors. In addition, a listing with the NASDAQ Stock Market gives access to valuable products and services. This is why the NASDAQ Stock Market is home to more listed companies than any other US market and is still the largest single pool of liquidity in the US equities market. Three listing tiers are offered: the NASDAQ Capital Market, the NASDAQ Global Market and the NASDAQ Global Select. Since 2007, over $265 billion in global market value has chosen to switch to NASDAQ.
 
In Europe, NASDAQ OMX owns and operates seven exchanges in the Nordic countries, which function as a gateway to Nordic and European capital markets. In early 2010, the Nordic markets went live with INET, the award winning trading platform, ensuring that brokers and listed companies always have the latest technology to maximize the benefits of being a NASDAQ OMX customer. All NASDAQ OMX exchanges now run on the same trading platform.
 
In the Nordic countries and in the Baltics, NASDAQ OMX offers listing opportunities through its Main market. The Nordic Large Cap segment is home for globally known companies such as Nokia, Ericsson, Volvo, H&M, Carlsberg and Electrolux. For growth companies from all over the world, there is First North, a listing and trading venue designed specifically to serve as a primary listing market for emerging companies as well as a secondary listing market for public companies to raise additional capital with limited administrative requirements. What distinguishes First North from other European-based growth markets is its high liquidity. First North helps companies mature and eventually move to a main market for companies with larger capitalizations.
 
NASDAQ OMX listed companies are from more than 40 countries. This is why we understand that companies in different countries have a variety of needs. Some seek to grow their business domestically, while others seek opportunities to operate globally. That's why we offer a wide spectrum of solutions customized products and services which add to and improve the benefits of listing.
