NASDAQ Statement from NASDAQ regarding OMX
Nasdaq notes the conditional offer by Borse Dubai for at least 25% of OMX AB.
Nasdaq remains fully committed to its recommended offer for 100% of OMX.
The combination of Nasdaq and OMX will provide significant benefits for customers, shareholders and stakeholders in both companies, strengthen the Nordic region as a financial center and provide enhanced opportunities for economic growth throughout the Nordic region.
The Nasdaq offer includes a substantial portion of Nasdaq shares, providing shareholders the opportunity to benefit from the long term value creation opportunity of the combined group, which brings together two companies with a common culture and vision of innovation, competitiveness and pioneering technology expertise.
Nasdaq urges OMX shareholders to take no action with respect to the conditional offer by Dubai for a minority stake in OMX .
