"Our strategy is focused on becoming an entrenched provider of corporate, trading, technology, and information products and services that allow our customers to more effectively navigate today's global capital markets," said Bob Greifeld, CEO, NASDAQ OMX. "Essential to that strategy has been the expansion of the depth and breadth of asset classes, products and markets we offer as well as extending our presence in adjacent businesses that are relevant to the communities where we operate to facilitate a deepening of our client relationships."
Mr. Greifeld continued, "We took significant strategic steps forward this quarter – closing on two transformative acquisitions, launching a revolutionary interest rate market, and delivering record revenues. The acquisitions of Thomson Reuters' IR, PR, and Multimedia businesses, and eSpeed, establish NASDAQ OMX as the leader in corporate solutions and a leading force in the expanding electronic fixed income business. Both are on track to meet or exceed the targets we've set for delivering value to shareholders. Today, across our expanded portfolio of businesses, we are now a #1 or #2 player in business segments that collectively comprise 96% of our revenues. Our position continues to validate the strategic direction of the organization and relentless focus on our clients."Operating expenses were $292 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $252 million in the prior year quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter 2013 operating expenses were $267 million, up 15% as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to the inclusion of expenses associated with the acquisition of Thomson Reuters' IR, PR and Multimedia businesses, as well as several smaller acquisitions. On an organic basis (constant currency and excluding acquisitions), second quarter non-GAAP operating expenses were unchanged year-over-year, a net 1% decline in core expenses offset by higher internal investment (GIFT) spending.
