The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc.: Nasdaq Lists The Global X YieldCo Index ETF

Emerging Asset Class That Offers Investors Alternative Income ExposureNEW YORK, May 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq announced that Global X
Funds will list a new exchange-traded fund (ETF), the Global X YieldCo Index
ETF (Symbol: YLCO), which will begin trading on The Nasdaq Stock Market
Thursday, May 28, 2015.

"YieldCos are an emerging asset class that meets many of the key investment
characteristics investors are looking for, such as high current income, low
volatility and the opportunity for dividend growth," said Jay Jacobs,
Research Analyst at Global X Funds. "We are excited to bring this asset class
to investors who have traditionally looked to MLPs and REITs for alternative
income exposure."

YLCO seeks to provide investors with access to YieldCos, an emerging asset
class of yield vehicles that are structured to deliver stable and growing
dividend income derived from a portfolio of renewable energy assets. YieldCos
looks for opportunities to add new operating assets to their portfolios,
which can help grow cash flows and distributions to shareholders over time.

"We are pleased to launch YLCO with our partners at Global X and we appreciate
their confidence in choosing the Nasdaq marketplace to list and trade ETFs,"
said Jeff McCarthy, Vice President, Head of ETP Listings at Nasdaq. "Global X
