NASDAQ Unveils Select Market Maker Program for New York Stock Exchange-Listed
Nov 20, 2007 (PrimeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) --
Service Extends Market Intelligence and Proprietary NASDAQ-Listed
Company Services to NYSE-Listed Companies Affected by Recent
Program Leverages NASDAQ's Market Share Gains in NYSE-Listed Stocks to
Offer Market Tools for the Benefit of All Public Companies
NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- The Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today unveiled the
expansion of its Select Market Maker Program for issuers to New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)-listed companies. The program
will bring NYSE-listed companies and the NASDAQ market making community together, while providing companies access to
utilize NASDAQ's Market Intelligence Desk(r) (MID) and proprietary NASDAQ Online(r) (NOL) at no cost. The Select Market
Maker Program, which was launched in July, is focused on providing issuers with direct access to market information from
"As we speak with NYSE-listed companies about the value of their listing and as a result of the growing trend of NYSE-listed
securities trading on the NASDAQ platform, it is becoming clear that there is a lack of information and resources on their
trading," commented Bruce Aust, Executive Vice President of NASDAQ's Corporate Client Group. "MID professionals assist
NASDAQ companies today by partnering them with market makers and granting them access to daily critical market reports and
NASDAQ Online services. As a result, we decided to offer the same personalized market tools to NYSE-listed companies. We
have facilitated numerous market marker conversations with NASDAQ-listed companies since its launch in July, and we are
delighted to extend this offering to NYSE-listed companies."
"Given the closing of certain NYSE specialist firms on the floor and other recent market developments, NYSE-listed companies
are in need of additional liquidity and access to market information," commented Chris Concannon, Executive Vice President of
NASDAQ's Transaction Services. "For the month of October, the participation rate for the NYSE specialists was at an all time
low of 2.7%, while NASDAQ's total reported market share in NYSE-listed stocks was at a record high of 37.4%. Our access to
the market making community and the Select Market Maker Program allows us to marry those issuers that have lost their
specialists with the true liquidity providers in their stocks."
