NEW YORK and RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Sept. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group (Nasdaq:NDAQ) and the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) have today entered into an agreement to upgrade Tadawul's current trading platform.

As part of its long-term strategic plan, Tadawul will replace its existing NASDAQ OMX platform (SAXESS) with one powered by the industry leading X-Stream INET technology. Migration to the new platform is expected to commence in January 2014.

"The Saudi Stock Exchange is proud to engage in a new chapter in its relationship with NASDAQ OMX as we continue our efforts to build the necessary infrastructure to expand into new products and services," said Adel Al-Ghamdi, Chief Executive Officer, Tadawul, in his opening remarks at yesterday's signing ceremony held in Tadawul's headquarters in Riyadh. "Our investment in the X-stream INET trading platform, recognized as the most advanced securities trading technology in the world, is an investment in the future of our capital markets.
