OMX seeks opportunities in Eastern Europe
OMX, the leading expert in the exchange industry, has taken the initiative to explore business opportunities among the exchanges in Eastern Europe, leveraging OMX expertise developed in its Nordic Exchange and through its technology offering to more than 60 exchanges in over 50 countries.
OMX’s successful integration of the Nordic and Baltic marketplace into the Nordic Exchange has raised interest among other exchange organizations across Europe. Many exchanges are considering partnerships, technology upgrades and other actions to develop their marketplaces.
The initial talks in Eastern Europe can possibly result in selling of consultancy services, supplying technology or other forms of partnerships. OMX is also discussing with shareholders of exchanges in Eastern Europe about opportunities for OMX to participate as an owner, given that a potential agreement would add value for local marketplaces and OMX shareholders. It is yet too early to say where these discussions will lead.
