NASDAQ Stock Market

NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (NDAQ) is a United States public company that owns and operates the NASDAQ stock market and seven European stock exchanges in the Nordic and Baltic regions under the OMX banner. It is headquartered in New York City, and its Chief Executive Officer is Robert Greifeld.
In December 2005, the London Stock Exchange Group (LSE) rejected a £1.6 billion takeover offer from Macquarie Bank. The LSE described the offer as "derisory." It then received a bid in March 2006 for £2.4 billion from NASDAQ, which was also rejected by the LSE. NASDAQ later pulled its bid, and less than two weeks later on April 11, 2006, struck a deal with LSE's largest shareholder, Ameriprise Financial's Threadneedle Asset Management unit, to acquire all of that firm's stake, consisting of 35.4 million shares, at £11.75 per share. NASDAQ also purchased 2.69 million additional shares, resulting in a total stake of 15%. While the seller of those shares was undisclosed, it occurred simultaneously with a sale by Scottish Widows of 2.69 million shares. The move was seen as an effort to force LSE to negotiate either a partnership or eventual merger, as well as to block other suitors such as NYSE Group, owner of the New York Stock Exchange.
Subsequent purchases increased NASDAQ's stake to 29%, holding off competing bids for several months. However only a further 0.4% of shareholders accepted the offer by the deadline and therefore the offer was rejected on February 10, 2007.

I found them to be too complicated there is too much when you just enter their site. You wonder what to begin with and you have no idea. I need to say they have lost a client. It seems like the are pushing people from them not attracting.
