OMX AB: RECORD YEAR FOR NEW LISTINGS AT NASDAQ’S NORDIC EXCHANGES

Nasdaq Nordic

RECORD YEAR FOR NEW LISTINGS AT NASDAQ’S NORDIC EXCHANGES

Stockholm, December 21, 2015 — Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) welcomed 97 new listings
to its Nordic markets* in 2015, raising above 54 billion SEK in total. This
represents a 31 percent increase from the 74 new listings that occurred in
2014, and makes 2015 the strongest year ever in terms of new listings for
Nasdaq Nordic.

“In a European perspective, Nasdaq Nordic has been the leading platform for new
listings and we are pleased to see the strong inflow of companies using our
Nordic markets to raise growth capital”, says Adam Kostyál, senior vice
president and head of European listings at Nasdaq. “As an exchange, one of our
most important tasks is to help companies grow, and we are proud to provide so
many companies with the infrastructure and investor exposure needed to thrive.”

28 of the new listings at Nasdaq’s Nordic exchanges occurred on the main
market, while 61 occurred on Nasdaq First North. In addition, a total number of
8 companies have transferred from First North to the main market, confirming
First North’s status as a leading growth platform for Nordic companies.

“Since its launch in 2006, Nasdaq First North has grown significantly and is
now home to more than 200 companies”, says Adam Kostyál. “Studies show that job
creation in small and medium sized companies increases greatly after listing,
and we are pleased to see that such a large number of First North listed
companies have made the step to our main market during 2015.”

The largest IPO during 2015 was hotel property owner Pandox – raising 5.5
billion SEK – followed by Dometic (4.7 billion SEK) and Attendo AB (4.3 billion
SEK). Nasdaq’s Nordic markets continue to attract interest from companies
within a wide range of different industries, including e-commerce, technology
and consumer services. A particularly strong interest from the industrial and
financial sector could however be seen during the year, with 21 and 26 new
listings in these segments, respectively.

“Nasdaq Nordic maintains its position as a diversified exchange, with high
quality companies across all industry segments“ says Adam Kostyál. “The
interest in raising capital through the exchange is always dependent on the
market and the macro economic environment, but our pipeline is strong and we
expect the inflow of new listings to continue during the first half of 2016.”
