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.

The stock went to a mix of international and Swedish investors at SEK110 share - valuing the stake at around SEK422 million, or £35.7 million.

Our cooperation will certainly continue going forward."
