Nasdaq Stockholm Welcomes THQ Nordic to First North

Stockholm, November 22, 2016 — Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) announces that the trading
in THQ Nordic AB’s shares (short name: THQN B) commenced today on Nasdaq First
North in Stockholm. THQ Nordic belongs to the Consumer Goods sector and is the

“Since 2011 we have established a strong platform with more than 370 fantastic
personnel and external game developers, an attractive game portfolio and a
strong and well-invested pipeline, while we have experienced strong growth and
healthy profitability. We are now ready for our next chapter and aim to
leverage our existing platform to accelerate our business model and growth. We
believe that the listing of our B shares on Nasdaq First North and the
associated capital raising will support us in our growth strategy”, said Lars

growth markets,” said Adam Kostyál, senior vice president and head of European
