NASDAQ OMX Announces the Winners of the Baltic Market Awards 2012

Tallinn/Riga/Vilnius, Baltic Market, January 24, 2013 – NASDAQ OMX Group Inc.
(NASDAQ:NDAQ) reports that at the annual gala ceremony held tonight the winners
of the Baltic Market Awards 2012 were honored. TEO LT, Latvijas Kuģniecība and
LHV Pank collected the Baltic prizes in five different categories.

The Lithuanian telecommunications company TEO LT was recognized for the Best
Investor Relations (IR) in the Baltic Countries for the fourth consecutive
year. The runners-up were an Estonian water utility Tallinna Vesi and a
Lithuanian holding company Invalda. The Estonian construction company Nordecon
and the Latvian radio manufacturer SAF Tehnika were recognized among Top five.
TEO LT showed the best results also in two other categories: The Best Investor
Relations Online and The Best Annual Report.

Latvian shipping company Latvijas Kugnieciba improved its IR practices by
nearly 34% over 2012 in comparison with 2011, securing an award for The Most
Visible Improvement of the Year, and goes to ring the bell at the NASDAQ OMX
MarketSite in New York.

LVH Pank from Estonia was recognized as the most active and dedicated financial
intermediary on the Baltic Market winning the Member of the Year 2012 award for
the second year in a row.

“In the times of uncertainty and depressed market activity, importance of
investor confidence can hardly be overestimated. Transparency, open engagement
with the investor community and sound corporate governance are essential for
nurturing investor trust and support, and securing access to capital. NASDAQ
OMX remains strongly committed in supporting the Baltic companies with advice
and practical tools in building top class investor relations, and the Baltic
Market Awards is a testimony to this commitment,” says Arminta Saladžienė,
Head of NASDAQ OMX Baltic Market.

“Baltic exchanges operate the Baltic Market as a single marketplace for market
participants and investors with increasing exposure towards Nordic and other
European investors. This opens new opportunities for the Baltic listed
companies to broaden their investor base, increase liquidity and visibility.
Cross-border financial communication and investor relations effectively help
expand the outreach beyond the home country’s borders,” highlights Daiga
Auziņa-Melalksne, Head of Exchange Services, of NASDAQ OMX Baltic Market.

14 Estonian, 12 Latvian and 25 Lithuanian companies (a total of 51) were
evaluated according to more than 120 criteria, including the quality of the
annual and periodical reports, ad hoc disclosures, web page and analysts’
opinions, etc. The period under review covered July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012.

The Baltic average score in 2012 evaluation was 76.57. The average result of
the evaluated Estonian companies was 81.73, Latvian 72.42 and Lithuanian 75.67
