Trading in equity derivatives at OMX to become more attractive In order to strengthen its customer offering, OMX Derivatives Market will reduce its fees for certain customer segments with respect to trading in primarily Swedish stock options. The fee adjustment, which is expected to increase trading in these products on the exchange, will become effective on January 2, 2006. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers products at even more competitive prices. To date, the volume of trading in Swedish equity derivatives has risen compared with the year-earlier period, and we believe this measure will contribute to a further increase, says Henrik Paulsson, Head of OMX Derivatives Market. The reduction in fees is not expected to have any significant impact on OMXs earnings.
