The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc.: NASDAQ OMX eSpeed Brings World Class Trading Platform and Data Center to U.S. Fixed Income Market

Migration to NASDAQ OMX Data Center Enhances Trading Performance and
Opportunities

NEW YORK, May 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc.
(Nasdaq:NDAQ) today announced that eSpeed, the exchange group's leading
over-the-counter platform for electronic trading in benchmark U.S.
Treasuries, successfully completed performance engineering enhancements and
the migration to the NASDAQ OMX Data Center. The updated platform and data
center environment will provide customers with improved cost efficiencies,
trading opportunities across multiple asset classes, and access to
leading-edge services for market participants.

"With the help and support of our customers, we have focused our efforts on
leveraging the strength of NASDAQ OMX's technology expertise to deliver a
stronger and more robust platform," said Joe Noviello, Head of NASDAQ OMX
eSpeed. "We will continue to evolve in our performance and functionality
while we consider customer demand for electronic trading in products that are
immediately adjacent to benchmark Treasuries."

eSpeed customers will notice a 25% round-trip order-entry response-time
improvement. This, when combined with a 100 microsecond improvement in
market-data distribution, will provide customers with a greatly improved
fixed-income trading experience. Further improvements will be realized
through simplified, more cost-efficient access to global trading
opportunities across multiple asset classes and available through a common
NASDAQ OMX data center ecosystem. In the new data center environment,
customers may leverage NASDAQ OMX's access services offerings like wireless
connectivity to Chicago. eSpeed recently expanded its distribution in
partnership with front-end software and market data providers, further
supporting customer demand for deeper liquidity in the fixed income
marketplace.

"The eSpeed platform enhancement and migration is an important step in the
exchange group's efforts to better serve the fixed income, currencies and
commodities community," said Hans-Ole Jochumsen, President of Global
Trading&Market Services. "We will continue to expand our global fixed income
footprint by leveraging our strategic assets and our established trading and
clearing platforms."

As part of NASDAQ OMX's recently formed Global Trading&Market Services
business, the eSpeed platform is well positioned to help customers navigate
the benchmark U.S. Treasuries market with services for the full life-cycle of
global fixed income trading. NASDAQ OMX provides the financial services
community with global fixed income offerings such as the NLX platform for
European interest rate futures, strategic ownership of Nordic clearing houses
and LCH.Clearnet Group, Limited, trading in Nordic corporate bonds and the
exchange group's U.S. derivatives marketplaces for listing fixed income
products. NASDAQ OMX's Global Trading&Market Services comprises all
