Stockholm, February 6, 2013 — NASDAQ OMX (NASDAQ: NDAQ) announces that it has been selected as the supplier of board communications technology to Vattenfall, one of Europe’s largest producers of electricity and the largest producer of heat. Swedish-based Vattenfall will implement NASDAQ OMX’s Director’s Desk solution for mobile and secure board communications. NASDAQ OMX was awarded the contract in a public tender issued by Vattenfall.

“Our Director’s Desk solution already has a strong global footprint and the commitment of a world leading organisation such as Vattenfall is a further testament to our technology,” said Adam Kostyal, Senior Vice President at NASDAQ OMX Corporate Client Group. “As board work is becoming increasingly global and as a result also more mobile, Director’s Desk embraces the latest technology in order to make the daily board tasks more efficient while ensuring the highest level of security and confidentiality.”
