NASDAQ OMX (NASDAQ:NDAQ) announced that December 9th through the 13th will be a record week for listings on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm. NASDAQ OMX Stockholm has three main market listings scheduled, which is the largest number in one single week in nine years. The upcoming listings are: today, Monday December 9, the real estate company Victoria Park, on Tuesday, December 10, the bathroom company Sanitec and on Thursday, December 12, the candy company Candyking.
“Naturally, it is extremely pleasing to note a strengthened flow of new companies listing on our main market,” says Adam Kostyal, Senior Vice President and Head of European listings at NASDAQ OMX. “We have experienced a considerable rise in interest for exchange listings over the past six months, which is primarily linked to a positive index trend, low volatility and the strong value proposition of NASDAQ OMX. As a result we’re seeing a lot more confidence in the equities market right now, which creates attractive capital opportunities for issuers and investors alike.”
The last occasion when this many companies joined NASDAQ OMX Stockholm’s main market in one single week was the first week in December 2004, when Ainax, Probi and Lundin Mining listed.
Including the three scheduled listings this week, a total of nine companies have listed on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm’s main market (including switches from other markets) in 2013. On First North Stockholm 14 companies have listed year to date.
