NASDAQ Leads U.S. Exchanges for IPOs in Third Quarter of 2014

Surpasses 100 IPO Milestone and Exceeds 2013 IPO Total During the Quarter

The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) announced it welcomed 76 new listings in the third quarter of 2014, including 41 initial public offerings (IPOs), on The NASDAQ Stock Market (NASDAQ), to bring its total IPO count to 140 for 2014.

Our ability to attract a diverse range of growth sectors was evident as we welcomed 41 IPOs, which is a testament to the resiliency and success of our capital markets."
