Europeans AIMing for NasdaqPosted: August 17, 2007
NASDAQ made a $5B bid for the LSE. The bid was expectedly rejected, but the concept of a strong trans-Atlantic exchange sound very appealing. If the bid would have went through then the LSE AIM list would have been the perfect growth vehicle for European technology companies looking to expand across the Atlantic.
I am hoping that NASDAQ will make a new bid at a later date and we will see this merger go through.
Hey, why not merge European exchanges into super exchange and buy NASDAQ! That’s a thought…
