Reuters is the First to Offer High Speed Data Feed
from OMX Nordic Exchange                          

Stockholm, March 6, 2008 — OMX Nordic Exchange, marketplaces operated by The    
NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: NDAQ) today announced that Reuters has launched 
a high-speed data feed that is directly connected to the Nordic Exchange's full 
order book. Reuters Data Feed Direct allows professional investors and vendors  
to receive market data directly from the OMX trading system with the same low   
latency as members of the OMX Nordic Exchange.                                  

Reuters is the first vendor to offer this data feed, which provides market data 
for equity and related products. The data is derived from OMX's low latency data
feed based on GENIUM FIX that launched in November 2007. OMX and Reuters        
collaborated on the set-up of Reuters Data Feed Direct in response to increasing
customer demand for accurate and timely data. This demand is due to a rapidly   
evolving financial market landscape that is driving increased competition,      
openness and cross-border trading. As a result, automation and speed have become
critical for many market participants, with algorithmic trading now a widely    
adopted strategy.                                                               

Randall Hopkins, Vice President, Market Data Distribution, NASDAQ OMX Group,    
commented: “Laws, regulations and increasing demand from investors for rapid and
reliable information are forces driving the market for communication tools. By  
meeting investors' demand for high quality information, investors are able to   
make better informed investment decisions. OMX is pleased to have worked with   
Reuters and other data vendors to develop its low latency capabilities to secure
a true level playing field for members as well as investors.”                   

Mike Powell, Global Head of Real-Time, Reuters, added: “Reuters is dedicated to 
supporting the growth of our customers' business and to meeting the increasing  
demand for low latency market data and platform solutions. We are delighted to  
be working with OMX, an organization with an excellent reputation for its       
technology, to ensure accurate and timely data delivery. We look forward to     
furthering our already strong relationship. Reuters is the only provider        
offering a globally supported, fully managed direct feed service and is         
committed to expanding venue availability throughout 2008 across all regions,   
whilst simultaneously adding new asset classes.”                                

The new Reuters Data Feed Direct provides accurate and timely data to fuel      
algorithms, pricing engines and other latency sensitive applications.           

OMX and Reuters recognize the importance of market data in attracting and       
retaining market participation and facilitating new trading strategies. In      
keeping with the constant                                                       

expansion of its direct feed portfolio, Reuters is currently the first vendor to
offer a direct feed connection to the Nordic Exchange.
