History[edit]

Merger attempt with London Stock Exchange[edit]

In December 2005, the London Stock Exchange Group (LSE) rejected a £1.6 billion takeover offer from Macquarie Bank. The LSE described the offer as "derisory." It then received a bid in March 2006 for £2.4 billion from NASDAQ, which was also rejected by the LSE. NASDAQ later pulled its bid, and less than two weeks later on April 11, 2006, struck a deal with LSE's largest shareholder, Ameriprise Financial's Threadneedle Asset Management unit, to acquire all of that firm's stake, consisting of 35.4 million shares, at £11.75 per share.[2] NASDAQ also purchased 2.69 million additional shares, resulting in a total stake of 15%. While the seller of those shares was undisclosed, it occurred simultaneously with a sale by Scottish Widows of 2.69 million shares.[3] The move was seen as an effort to force LSE to negotiate either a partnership or eventual merger, as well as to block other suitors such as NYSE Euronext, owner of the New York Stock Exchange.[4]

Subsequent purchases increased NASDAQ's stake to 29%, holding off competing bids for several months. However only a further 0.4% of shareholders accepted the offer by the deadline and therefore the offer was rejected [5] on February 10, 2007.

Boston and Philadelphia Exchanges purchase[edit]

On October 2, 2007, NASDAQ purchased the Boston Stock Exchange. On November 7, NASDAQ announced an agreement to purchase the Philadelphia Stock Exchange.

OMX purchase[edit]

On May 25, 2007, NASDAQ agreed to buy the Swedish-Finnish financial company that controls 7 Nordic and Baltic stock exchanges OMX for USD 3.7 billion to form NASDAQ OMX Group.[6] As of February 27, 2008, the deal was completed.

Acquisition of Thomson Reuters businesses[edit]

On December 12, 2012, NASDAQ OMX announced that it would acquire Thomson Reuters' investor relations, public relations and multimedia businesses for $390 million in cash.[7] NASDAQ OMX completed the purchase on June 3, 2013. [8]

Additional Services[edit]

Global Information Services[edit]

In January 2013, NASDAQ OMX announced that it would combine its global data products and index businesses into a unit called Global Information Services, as part of an ongoing effort to broaden its portfolio.[9]

Directors Desk | DirectorsDesk.com[edit]

On June 29, 2007, NASDAQ entered into an agreement to acquire DirectorsDesk.com, a management suite for Boards of Directors.[10]

GlobeNewswire[edit]

GlobeNewswire (previously PrimeNewswire) provides press release, editing and wire services. It was founded in 1998 and acquired by NASDAQ OMX in 2006.[11]

SMARTS Group[edit]

On July 27, 2010, NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. has signed an agreement to acquire SMARTS Group, the world-leading technology provider of market surveillance solutions to exchanges, regulators and brokers.[12]

Carpenter Moore[edit]

NASDAQ OMX sold its stake in the Carpenter Moore D&O Insurance in 2009.
