| Source: Listing and Trading Operations

Effective June 9, 2014, tick sizes for certain equity instruments admitted to trading on NASDAQ OMX Helsinki and NASDAQ OMX Stockholm as well as equities admitted to trading on First North Stockholm, First North Finland, and First North Iceland will be changed.

The change is based on customer requests in order to ensure a better price formation for equities trading below 1 EUR/SEK/ISK.

Overall, the change implies the creation of two new tick size tables and a name change for two existing tick size tables. The two existing tables being:

  • “XHEL Equities EUR”, with ID 113
  • “Equities SEK”, with ID 1

Moreover, the change implies termination of tick size table:

  • FN Equities, with ID 177
