Norway regulator OK for Euronext, Nasdaq to take over Oslo Brs
April 8, 2019

The Boersen-Zeitung newspaper is reporting that the Norwegian financial regulator Finanstilsynet has certified competing bidders Euronext and Nasdaq as eligible for a takeover of Oslo Brs VPS.

The final decision on which stock exchange operator will win the bidding war for the Norwegian market operator, which also includes the country's central securities depository, will be made by the Ministry of Finance. The process has a deadline of 14 May, but can be extended if necessary.

Euronext has secured pledges from shareholders holding 45 percent of Oslo Brs in addition to its own 8.1 percent share. For its part, Nasdaq has the management of Oslo Brs and the two largest anchor shareholders behind it, DNB Livsforsikring (19.8 percent) and Kommunal Landspensjonskasse (10 percent).
