NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today
announced that Lee Shavel, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice
President, Corporate Strategy will retire, effective March 31, 2016.

Shavel joined Nasdaq in 2011 from Bank of America Merrill Lynch and was
responsible for Accounting, Treasury, Corporate Strategy, Financial
Planning&Analysis, Investor Relations, Risk Management and Global Facilities.
During his nearly five-year tenure as CFO, Shavel advanced the company's
return on invested capital framework to guide capital allocation decisions,
initiated the company's dividend and dividend policy as a core pillar of
capital deployment, and reorganized the company's financial reporting with
increased transparency. Since adding Mr. Shavel to the senior leadership
team, Nasdaq's total shareholder return has more than doubled that of the S&P

"We have been fortunate to have someone with Lee's talent and skills working
for us," said Bob Greifeld, CEO, Nasdaq. "He has been instrumental in
framing our capital allocation strategy and in helping investors understand
the value of our company. We thank him for his valuable service to our
organization and wish him well in the future."

"I have been honored to serve Nasdaq and am particularly gratified that the
policies I've implemented have contributed to increased value for
shareholders," said Lee Shavel, CFO, Nasdaq. "Having accomplished much
during my time here, I leave knowing that the company is in a strong
financial position. I am excited to pursue the next chapter of my career
which will apply my experience at the corporate board level."

Shavel has accepted a position to join the Board of Directors of a public
company.

Ron Hassen, Senior Vice President and Corporate Controller, Nasdaq, will serve
as interim CFO, as the company conducts an active search to fill the role.
Mr. Hassen has been with Nasdaq for nearly 15 years and previously served as
interim Chief Financial Officer.
