Since 2005, NASDAQ has attracted 131 transfers from other U.S. exchanges, representing more than $520 billion in combined market capitalization at the time of the switch. Comparatively, only 86 companies, with a combined market capitalization of $167 billion, have moved off The NASDAQ Stock Market over the same time period.In addition to leading the transfer battle, in January 2013 NASDAQ also welcomed CyrusOne Inc., a spin-off of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE:CBB). "It is rare for a company to spin-off and switch exchanges at the time of its IPO," said Bob McCooey, Senior Vice President, NASDAQ OMX. "We believe this is a testament to our value proposition, and why we continue to attract more industry-leading companies from competing exchanges than any other market in the world. We recognize these great companies have a choice of where to list their shares, and we are honored to be the leader in attracting more new listings, transfers and spin-offs than any other exchange."
