OMXs Nordic List to be launched on October 2, 2006 After a consultation round with OMXs customers, the launch date for OMXs Nordic List has been set to October 2, 2006. The Nordic List includes harmonization of listing requirements for the exchanges in Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki as well as a common way of presenting the listed companies on one common list. By creating a common list and presentation model the visibility and liquidity of Nordic shares will be improved and the competitiveness of the Nordic region enhanced. OMX's aim with the Nordic List is to facilitate for market participants to operate in the Nordic market and for investors to benchmark Nordic investment opportunities. The Nordic List will attract even more investors and more capital to the region. This will benefit our listed companies, regardless of whether they are large or small, says Jukka Ruuska, President of Nordic Marketplaces, OMX. The Nordic List will replace the current A List and O List in Stockholm, the Main List, I List and NM List in Helsinki and the current list in Copenhagen. The listing requirements of the different exchanges will be harmonized. The companies on the Nordic List are being presented in a common way divided into segments; first by market capitalization and then by industry sector following the international Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS).
