Nasdaq Appoints Nikolaj Kosakewitsch as New President of Nasdaq Copenhagen

Copenhagen, February 9, 2017 — Nasdaq Inc. (NASDAQ: NDAQ) today announced that
Nikolaj Kosakewitsch has been appointed President of Nasdaq Copenhagen A/S.
Nikolaj joins Nasdaq from Carnegie Investment Bank, where he most recently
served as Head of Securities, Denmark.

In addition to his new role as President of Nasdaq Copenhagen, Kosakewitsch
will have the functional position as Head of Sales for Nasdaq European
Equities, reporting to Lauri Rosendahl, Nasdaq’s Head of European Equities and
President of Nasdaq Nordic.

“Nasdaq has built tremendous momentum throughout the Nordic region, where
Denmark welcomed two of the world’s largest IPOs last year,” said Rosendahl.
“Nikolaj brings solid experience of the capital markets in Denmark and the
Nordic region, combined with a genuine knowledge in equity sales, including
institutional end-investor understanding. I am confident that he will be a
great addition to the Nasdaq team.”

“I am very excited to join Nasdaq at a time when European capital markets are
developing rapidly,” said Kosakewitsch. “There are plenty of opportunities to
further develop the local, Danish market, and Nasdaq Copenhagen will play a
critical role in that work. Furthermore, the competitive landscape in Europe
and the updated regulatory environment for securities markets makes this
position highly interesting, and I look forward to seeing the industry I know
so well from a new angle.”

Kosakewitsch has more than 20 years of experience in the financial markets.
Prior to joining Carnegie Investment Bank in 2012, he served in Nordic Sales at
SEB and as Sales Trader at Alfred Berg ABN Amro. He has also experience from
portfolio management and principal trading in equities, fixed income and FX. He
holds a Global Executive MBA from INSEAD.

Kosakewitsch will assume the new position on June 1, 2017, at the latest. As
previously communicated, President of Nasdaq Copenhagen, Bjørn Sibbern, has
been appointed to Nasdaq Executive Vice President of Global Information
Services. In order to secure a smooth transition, Bjørn Sibbern will remain as
an advisor to Nikolaj Kosakewitsch during a transition period.
