Market Cap Segment Review at NASDAQ OMX Nordic Exchanges


Copenhagen/Helsinki/Reykjavik/Stockholm, December 18, 2009 — NASDAQ OMX reports that the semi-annual review of its Nordic market capitalization (market cap) segments has been completed. The revision is based on average market cap value in November 2009. Together with indexes and sector classifications, the market cap segmentation is a tool to increase visibility for companies listed on NASDAQ OMX Nordic exchanges in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Reykjavik and Stockholm. Effective January 4, 2010, the following four companies will change segment: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Company | Present | New Segment | Listing venue | | | Segment | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Atlantic Petroleum P/F | Mid Cap | Small Cap | Copenhagen/Reykja | | | | | vik | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | LifeCycle Pharma A/S | Mid Cap | Small Cap | Copenhagen | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Net Entertainment NE AB | Small Cap | Mid Cap | Stockholm | | ser. B | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Schaumann Properties | Mid Cap | Small Cap | Copenhagen | | A/S | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In line with classification amendments announced earlier this year, the Nordic market cap segments will be reviewed annually instead of semi-annually. Hence, the following cap segment revision will take effect in January 2011 based on market value in November 2010. About the market cap segments Companies belong to a market cap segment (Small-, Mid- and Large Cap) based on its average market value during the given review month. Companies with a market value exceeding EUR 1 billion are in the group of “Large Cap”, while companies with a market value smaller than EUR 150 million belong to “Small Cap”. Companies with a market value between EUR 150 billion and EUR 1 billion belong to the “Mid Cap” segment.
