Nasdaq Leads New Listings in U.S. and Nordic Markets

By Bob McCooey / Senior Vice President of Nasdaq's Listing Services

Nasdaq welcomed the most new listings of any exchange in both the U.S. and Nordics during the first half of 2016, including a record total of U.S. listing exchange transfers.

For the Record

In the first six months of 2016, Nasdaq welcomed a combined 176 new listings – including 68 initial public offerings (IPOs) – to our U.S. and Nordic regions, maintaining our position as the leading global exchange venue. We were pleased to extend our track record as the leading U.S. exchange for ten consecutive quarters based on total IPOs.

Areas of Strength

Despite a slower overall IPO environment amidst a background of global market volatility, Nasdaq saw particular areas of strength in our listings business from January through June 2016. Nasdaq Nordic outperformed other European markets in both capital raised and number of new listings. We also welcomed 37 exchange listing transfers in the U.S. market in the first half of 2016. The transfers include a record 13 companies from the NYSE – including Willis Towers Watson, Scripps Networks Interactive, and Opko Health, and 24 exchange-traded funds. Nasdaq also listed the most U.S. technology IPOs and 96 percent of venture capital-backed IPOs during the period, including SecureWorks and Acacia Communications.
