The NASDAQ Stock Market Tops U.S. Exchanges In IPOs And Transfers In Q1 2013

Led U.S. market with 33 new listings, including 18 IPOs in the first quarter of 2013

Captured four switches while retaining all currently-listed companies

Remains the leading U.S. exchange for technology, financial and healthcare IPOs

NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today announced that in the first quarter it welcomed 33 new listings, including 18 initial public offerings (IPO), more than any other U.S. exchange. Combined proceeds totaled more than $2.18 billion.

Supporting Transformational Technology, Healthcare, Financial and Consumer Companies

Especially noteworthy in the first quarter was NASDAQ's continued strength in the technology sector. New technology listings on NASDAQ last quarter include West Corp., Xoom Corporation and The ExOne Co. These new listings make The NASDAQ Stock Market home to more than 613 technology companies, which make up more than 75% of U.S. publically-traded companies in this sector.

In addition to its strength in the technology sector, NASDAQ also continued to attract healthcare and financial IPOs, listing six in each sector during the first quarter. NASDAQ has led both sectors in total IPOs since 2010.

NASDAQ also attracted two of the three largest private equity-sponsored IPOs last quarter, Norwegian Cruise Line and West Corp, which together raised more than $872 million in combined proceeds.

"NASDAQ successfully attracted more new listings than any other U.S. exchange this quarter, and our pipeline remains strong," said Nelson Griggs, Senior Vice President, NASDAQ OMX, "Throughout the history of our exchange, we have prided ourselves on attracting transformational companies of all sizes, and we are pleased to support them in all stages of their growth, and provide the platform they need to raise capital."

Leading in Transfers from Competing Exchanges

NASDAQ's value proposition continues to attract more transfers from competing U.S. exchanges than any other U.S. market. In the first quarter of 2013, four companies have switched to NASDAQ. In comparison, no companies have moved their listing away from NASDAQ in the first quarter.
