TietoEnator and OMXs cooperation change direction In December 2005, OMX and TietoEnator announced an intention to create a joint venture company providing solutions and services for Nordic securities processing. The parties have now mutually decided to cooperate in IT operations, without establishing a jointly owned company. As part of the cooperation OMX and TietoEnator have reached an agreement which includes the divestment of a unit in IT operations with 21 employees to TietoEnator. The transfer will have a minor impact on OMXs sales and earnings in 2006 and the unit will be deconsolidated as from April 1, 2006. OMXs strategy remains to find a long term solution with clear customer benefits for the remaining parts of the former Banks & Brokers business area, involving approximately 75 employees. Negotiations are ongoing with two potential partners.
