Market operator Nasdaq OMX has divested its 25% stake in Swedish derivatives trading technology company Orc Software through an accelerated bookbuilding offering.

SEB Enskilda lead-managed the offering, which saw Nasdaq OMX divest 3,838,075 Orc shares, corresponding to 25.25% of the capital and votes of the company.

Our cooperation will certainly continue going forward."
