Nasdaq OMX Agrees to Pay $26.5 Million to Settle Class-Action Lawsuit Involving its Bungling of Facebook IPO

Nasdaq OMX agreed to pay $26.5 million to settle a class-action lawsuit involving its bungling of Facebook's $16 billion initial public offering. The lawsuit said Nasdaq violated federal and state laws by not disclosing technology weaknesses in its IPO systems and failing to properly design and test them for the Facebook offering. The settlement is significant because exchanges are responsible for policing their own markets and therefore are legally immune from private liability for damages incurred when they are performing regulatory functions like conducting an IPO. Facebook's first day of trading on 18 May 2012, was rife with technology problems that resulted in a delayed opening and thousands of orders being stuck in Nasdaq's system for hours. Market-making firms lost an estimated $500 million as a result, and in 2013, Nasdaq voluntarily repaid about $41.6 million to them. But retail investors must use brokers to send orders to the exchange and were not able to apply for compensation.

The Nasdaq OMX Group, Inc. Announces Quarterly Dividend, Payable on June 26, 2015; Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Non-GAAP Effective Tax Rate Guidance for Full Year of 2015

The Board of Directors of The Nasdaq OMX Group, Inc. has declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share on the company's outstanding common stock, an increase of 67% from the prior $0.15 per share quarterly dividend. The dividend is payable on June 26, 2015, to shareowners of record at the close of business on June 12, 2015. The company announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net revenues of $507 million, down 4% from $529 million in the prior year period, driven primarily by a $29 million negative impact from foreign exchange rates. Operating income was $27 million against $184 million a year ago. Non-GAAP operating income was $235 million against $232 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $14 million against $156 million a year ago. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.80, up $0.02 compared to $0.78 in the first quarter of 2014. On a GAAP basis, net income attributable to Nasdaq was $9 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with $103 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. The $0.02 increase in non-GAAP EPS represents core organic EPS growth of $0.05 operationally and $0.01 due to acquisitions, partially offset by $0.04 - the $0.04 impact of changes in foreign exchange rates. For the year of 2015, the company expects non-GAAP effective tax rate in the range of 33% to 35%.
