RIG: NASDAQ OMX Baltic partners to form the first institutional equity research company in the Baltics

NASDAQ OMX Riga Announcement from the exchange 28.05.2009

NASDAQ OMX Baltic partners to form the first institutional equity research
company in the Baltics

Riga, May 28, 2009 - NASDAQ OMX's exchanges in Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius, part
of NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: NDAQ), announced today the establishment of
Emerging Nordic Research, the Baltic region's first independent institutional
equity research company founded with the explicit aim of serving institutional
investors. The company's Managing Director Ivars Bergmanis has more than twenty
years of global financial market experience. The three Baltic exchanges will
own 17% respectively and Ivars Bergmanis will be the single largest shareholder
with a 49% stake of the company.

“Despite the general availability of research suitable for retail investors,
there is clearly a shortage of comprehensive analysis that meets the particular
needs of professional, institutional investors,” says Ivars Bergmanis, Managing
Director of Emerging Nordic Research. “The Baltics are clearly a part of
Northern Europe and have strong ties to the other “traditional” Nordic
countries. I am convinced that the Baltic region can bounce back to robust
rates of economic growth as before the financial meltdown.”

Emerging Nordic Research will focus on the leading companies traded on the
NASDAQ OMX Baltic exchanges, with the first reports scheduled for this summer.
The research will only be available to institutional and professional investors
and will concentrate on investment ideas, not the usual investment
recommendations of buy, sell and hold. Revenues will be generated primarily
through commission sharing agreements (CSAs) between the client and the agency
executing trades, as well as bespoke research services. The shareholder
agreement includes principles that guarantee the company's day-to-day
independence from the exchanges.

Hans-Ole Jochumsen, Executive Vice President and President NASDAQ OMX Nordic
said: “The idea of setting up an independent research company dedicated to
covering the Baltic markets, with the goal of improving liquidity levels, has
been in the back of our minds for some time. This seemed a suitable time to
take our idea into action and we expect this to be beneficial for all market
participants.”

About Ivars Bergmanis
Ivars Bergmanis, the Managing Director of Emerging Nordic Research has more
than twenty years of global financial market experience. After working for four
years on the buy side in Australia with Colonial Mutual Investment Management,

in London with HSBC Investment Bank, where he was the global coordinator for
natural resources research and part of an Institutional Investor research
award-winning team. Since 2004 he has focused on the Baltics and has
participated directly in almost every significant Baltics-related IPO/ECM
transaction as a senior team member of SEB Enskilda (2007-2008) and Suprema
Securities / Evli (2004-2006).
