Bob Greifeld, Chief Executive Officer, NASDAQ OMX said:

"Our record-tying performance this quarter was driven by the strong fundamentals of our core business. Top-line growth within our transaction businesses was complemented by growing demand for co-location and listed company corporate services. During the quarter, we also saw an increase in the total number of listed companies on continued strength of the IPO market. These results demonstrate that our diversified business model is capable of delivering solid results while simultaneously allowing us to pursue growth initiatives to drive our business forward."

Business Highlights

  • Completed $200 million of the share repurchase program. During the second quarter of 2010, NASDAQ OMX repurchased 7.8 million shares of common stock, bringing the total number of shares repurchased since the program was announced in March 2010 to 10.0 million. 

  • Increased U.S. cash equity net revenues 68.8% when compared to the first quarter of 2010, resulting from favorable changes in client mix and activity, modified rates, and higher industry volumes.

  • Grew combined U.S. equity options market share for NASDAQ OMX PHLX ("PHLX") and The NASDAQ Options Market ("NOM") to 25.1% in the second quarter of 2010 (PHLX: 21.7%; NOM: 3.4%), up from 23.8% in the first quarter of 2010 (PHLX: 21.3%; NOM: 2.5%).

  • Witnessed growth in European derivative volume for the fourth consecutive quarter, as equity derivative volume increased 44.9% from the second quarter of 2009 and fixed income activity improved 37.0%. Contributing to the increase is the addition of 12 new clearing members in 2010, incremental to the 34 new members that joined in the fourth quarter of 2009. Additionally, the NASDAQ OMX Nordic clearinghouse registered two interest rate swap ("IRS") contracts for clearing, making it only the second European clearinghouse to offer clearing of IRS contracts. These transactions represent the first steps of an initiative designed to attract the activity of the entire Nordic IRS market. 

  • Improved Corporate Services revenues by 12% when compared to the first quarter of 2010 on the strength of continued customer demand, particularly for shareholder communications and market intelligence services. Also during the quarter, NASDAQ OMX entered into an exclusive partnership with FactSet Research Systems Inc. ("FactSet") in which FactSet will enhance its corporate platform by leveraging NASDAQ OMX's Corporate Intelligence product to provide a complete research solution to corporate clients. 

  • Announced earlier today the acquisition of SMARTS Group, the world-leading technology provider of market surveillance solutions to exchanges, regulators and brokers. This acquisition is part of NASDAQ OMX's strategy to diversify its Market Technology business and enter the broker surveillance and compliance market.

  • Completed the acquisition of Nord Pool ASA, which operates the Nordic Power market and the European Carbon market on one trading platform. Through this acquisition, the NASDAQ OMX Commodities offering now includes the world's largest power derivatives exchange and one of Europe's largest carbon exchanges.

  • Welcomed 16 new listings from the Greater China region during the quarter, including 3 IPOs, bringing the total number of NASDAQ listed-companies headquartered in Greater China to 144, more than any other U.S. exchange. Other notable listings in the second quarter of 2010 include CBOE Holdings, SMART Technologies, and Tesla Motors, the first IPO for an American automaker in 54 years.  

  • Realized another record day on the NASDAQ Closing Cross on June 25, 2010 as it was used to reconfigure the entire family of U.S. Russell indexes during their annual reconstitution. A total of 1.04 billion shares representing $11.2 billion of market value was executed in the Closing Cross in 0.855 seconds across some 2,065 NASDAQ-listed stocks.

  • Announced that NASDAQ OMX will deliver an ultra low latency trading platform to Singapore Exchange (SGX). The new trading platform, named SGX Reach, will be powered by NASDAQ OMX's Genium INET, the fastest trading technology in the world.

  • In July 2010, IDCG and BNY Mellon announced that BNY Mellon Clearing, LLC will become a clearing member of IDCG. With this membership, BNY Mellon Clearing, LLC will be able to offer its clients central counterparty clearing of interest rate derivatives.

  • Listings: New listings totaled 65 in the second quarter of 2010 compared with 47 in the first quarter of 2010 and 21 in the second quarter of 2009. Of the 65 new company listings in the second quarter of 2010, 59 listed on The NASDAQ Stock Market and 6 listed on the exchanges that comprise NASDAQ OMX Nordic and NASDAQ OMX Baltic. New listings in the second quarter of 2010 included 27 initial public offerings, compared with 18 in the first quarter of 2010 and 3 in the second quarter of 2009. 

  • Market Technology: Total order intake, which represents the value of orders signed, was $12 million during the second quarter of 2010, compared with $50 million in the first quarter of 2010 and $10 million in the second quarter of 2009. At the end of the second quarter of 2010, total order value, which represents the total contract value of orders signed that are yet to be recognized as revenue, was $453 million, compared with $481 million at the end of the first quarter of 2010 and $315 million at the end of the second quarter of 2009. 

Adena Friedman, Chief Financial Officer, said:

"The $200 million of share repurchases that we executed enabled us to buy back 10.0 million shares and deliver $0.02 EPS accretion to shareholders this quarter, and we remain committed to executing the remainder of the plan up to the $400 million authorized amount. Results for the second quarter demonstrate the scalability of our business as revenue growth drove expansion in operating income, while continued strong cash flows reflect the resilience of our model in a dynamic market environment."

Expense Guidance

Total operating expenses for the full year of 2010 are expected to be in the range of $870 million to $885 million, including approximately $60 million in non-recurring costs. Total operating expense guidance will be revised following the release of third quarter of 2010 results to incorporate the acquisition of SMARTS Group once the transaction has closed.  

Financial Review

Revenues

Revenues less liquidity rebates, brokerage, clearance and exchange fees ("net exchange revenues") were $390 million for the second quarter of 2010, an increase of $30 million, or 8%, from first quarter of 2010 and an increase of $23 million, or 6%, from second quarter of 2009 results.   Changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar had the impact of lowering revenues in the second quarter of 2010 by $8 million when compared to the first quarter of 2010; however, changes in exchange rates had the impact of increasing revenues by $2 million when compared to the second quarter of 2009.

Market Services

Market Services net exchange revenues were $270 million, up 12% when compared to first quarter of 2010 results and 10% when compared to the second quarter of 2009.

Transaction Services

Net exchange revenues from Transaction Services were $186 million for the second quarter of 2010, an increase of $31 million, or 20%, when compared to the first quarter of 2010 and to the second quarter of 2009.  

  • Cash Equity Trading net exchange revenues were $76 million for the second quarter of 2010, up $21 million, or 38%, from the first quarter of 2010 and up $8 million, or 12%, from the prior year quarter. 
  • Net U.S. cash equity trading revenues increased when compared to the first quarter of 2010 due to favorable changes in client mix and activity, modified rates, and higher matched volumes, which were up 17%. Revenues increased when compared to the prior year quarter due primarily to modified rates and to higher matched market share of U.S. cash equity trading.   
  • European cash equity trading revenues declined when compared to results from the first quarter of 2010 and the second quarter of 2009.   When compared to the first quarter of 2010, the decrease in revenue is due to changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar. The reduction in revenue when compared to the second quarter of 2009 is due primarily to revised trading fees introduced in the fourth quarter of 2009 and the first quarter of 2010, partially offset by increases in trading activity. 
  • Included in U.S. cash equity trading revenues in the second quarter of 2010 are $81 million in SEC Section 31 fees, compared with $55 million in the first quarter of 2010 and $92 million in the second quarter of 2009. Corresponding cost of revenues, reflecting the reimbursement of these fees to the SEC, is included in brokerage, clearance and exchange fees.
  • Derivative trading and clearing net exchange revenues were $69 million for the second quarter of 2010, up $8 million, or 13%, from the first quarter of 2010 and up $14 million, or 25%, from the prior year quarter.   
  • Net U.S. derivative trading and clearing revenues increased when compared to the first quarter of 2010 due primarily to increases in volume traded and market share. Revenues increased when compared to the second quarter of 2009 due to higher volumes traded and higher market share, offset somewhat by a decline in the average net fees for traded contracts. 
  • European derivative trading and clearing revenues increased when compared to the first quarter of 2010 and to the second quarter of 2009 due to higher trading volume for options and futures contracts and clearing of fixed income products. Partially offsetting the increase when compared to the first quarter of 2010 are changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar.      
  • Access Services revenues were $41 million for the second quarter of 2010, an increase of $2 million, or 5%, when compared to the first quarter of 2010 and an increase of $9 million, or 28%, when compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues when compared to the first quarter of 2010 is primarily due to increased demand for co-location services. The increase in revenues when compared to the second quarter of 2009 is due to revised fees for access services and increased demand for co-location services.

Market Data

Market Data revenues were $79 million for the second quarter of 2010, down $1 million, or 1%, when compared to the first quarter of 2010 and to the second quarter of 2009.  

  • Net U.S. tape plans revenues were $30 million in the second quarter of 2010, down $1 million, or 3%, when compared to the first quarter of 2010 and equal to revenues in the prior year quarter. The reduction in revenues when compared to the first quarter of 2010 is due primarily to a modest decline in trading and quoting market share of U.S equities, as calculated under the SEC-mandated market data revenue quoting and trading formula.
     
  • U.S. market data products revenues were $32 million in the second quarter of 2010, up $1 million, or 3%, when compared to the first quarter of 2010 and to the prior year quarter. Revenue growth when compared to the first quarter of 2010 is primarily due to increased revenues from non-professional Level 2 subscribers and index products. The increase in revenue when compared to the second quarter of 2009 is driven by the growth of new products such as BX TotalView, options data feeds, and mutual fund products. 
     
  • European market data products revenues were $17 million in the second quarter of 2010, a decrease of $1 million, or 6%, when compared to the first quarter of 2010, and a decrease of $2 million, or 11%, when compared to the prior year quarter.   The decrease when compared to the first quarter of 2010 is primarily due to changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar. The decrease in revenues when compared to the second quarter of 2009 is due primarily to declines in subscriber populations and discontinued products.

Issuer Services

Issuer Services revenues were $86 million, an increase of $2 million, or 2%, when compared to the first quarter of 2010, and an increase of $1 million, or 1%, when compared to the second quarter of 2009.

Global Listing Services

Global Listing Services revenues were $74 million for the second quarter of 2010, up $2 million, or 3%, from the first quarter of 2010, but down $1 million, or 1%, when compared to the second quarter of 2009.   

  • The increase when compared to the first quarter of 2010 is primarily due to higher Corporate Services revenues, resulting from higher demand for services from listed companies. Also contributing to the increase are higher revenues from listing of additional share fees. Partially offsetting these increases are lower European listing fees, resulting from changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar.
     
  • The decline when compared to the second quarter of 2009 is primarily due to lower Corporate Services revenues, resulting from the fourth quarter of 2009 sale of Carpenter Moore, NASDAQ OMX's insurance brokerage business. Also contributing to the decline are lower U.S. annual renewal fees due to a reduction in the number of listed companies. Partially offsetting these declines are higher listing of additional shares fees and higher European listing fees. Driving the increase in European listing fees are higher market capitalization values for European listed equities.    

Global Index Group

Global Index Group revenues were $12 million for the second quarter of 2010, equal to revenues in the first quarter of 2010, and up $2 million, or 20%, when compared to the second quarter of 2009.   Higher revenues when compared to the prior year quarter are primarily due to increases in asset sizes of licensed exchange traded funds ("ETFs") as well as additional demand for new licensed ETFs and other financial products. 

Market Technology

Market Technology revenues were $34 million for the second quarter of 2010, equal to revenues in the first quarter of 2010, but down $2 million, or 6%, when compared to the second quarter of 2009. Order intake for the second quarter was $12 million, up $2 million when compared to $10 million in the second quarter of 2009. Total order value, which represents the value of orders signed that have not yet been recognized as revenue, was $453 million in the second quarter of 2010, up from $315 million in the second quarter of 2009. 

Operating Expenses

Total non-GAAP operating expenses increased $6 million, or 3%, to $207 million from $201 million in the first quarter of 2010, and increased $8 million, or 4%, from $199 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in expenses when compared to the first quarter of 2010 is primarily driven by higher compensation, marketing and advertising, professional and contract services, occupancy, and general and administrative expenses. Somewhat offsetting these increases is the impact of changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar, which had the effect of lowering expenses by $5 million when compared to the first quarter of 2010. The increase in expenses from the second quarter of 2009 is primarily due to higher professional services, marketing and advertising, and occupancy expenses. Also contributing to the increase in expenses when compared to the second quarter of 2009 are changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar, which had the effect of increasing expenses by $2 million. 

Net Interest Expense

Net interest expense was $24 million for the second quarter of 2010, compared with $23 million for the first quarter of 2010 and the second quarter of 2009. Included in total interest expense for the second quarter of 2010 is $19 million in interest expense, reflecting a full quarter of the refinancing of our debt. Also included is $4 million of non-cash expense associated with the accretion of senior and convertible notes, $2 million in non-cash debt amortization expenses, and $1 million in other related fees. Interest income for the second quarter of 2010 was $2 million. 

Earnings Per Share

On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter 2010 earnings per diluted share were $0.52 as compared to non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.43 in the first quarter of 2010 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.47 in the prior year quarter. NASDAQ OMX's weighted average shares outstanding used to calculate diluted earnings per share was 209 million for the second quarter of 2010, 215 million for the first quarter of 2010, and 214 million for the second quarter of 2009. 

In June 2009, NASDAQ OMX filed an application for an advance tax ruling with the Swedish Tax Council for Advanced Tax Rulings. The application was filed to confirm whether certain interest expense is deductible for Swedish tax purposes under legislation that became effective on January 1, 2009. In June 2010, we received a favorable response from the Swedish Tax Council for Advanced Tax Rulings in which all members of the Council agreed that such interest expense is deductible for Swedish tax purposes. The Swedish Tax Agency has recently appealed such ruling to the Swedish Supreme Administrative Court. We expect the Supreme Administrative Court to agree with the ruling from the Swedish Council for Advanced Tax Rulings. Since we previously recorded the Swedish tax benefit, the outcome of this ruling resulted in no impact to our financial statements.
