Nasdaq May Acquire OMX

Reuters reports that the Nordic-Baltic bourse group OMX is holding exploratory talks about being acquired by the New York-based owner of the Nasdaq Stock Market.

Reuters says the talks are at a very early stage and Nasdaq is unlikely to conclude a deal with OMX until after making a decision on possible acquisition of the London Stock Exchange.

OMX, which operates the exchanges in Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, and the Baltic states, considered a move to acquire the London exchange a few years ago. Last week it was rumored that the London Exchange might try to acquire OMX.
