The combination of NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions and Thomson Reuters IR, PR and Multimedia businesses is a significant milestone for our company and one that is truly a first for this industry. The combination creates a compelling global offering that increases the depth and breadth of resources available to deliver innovative products and services to our customers.
NASDAQ OMX recognized the importance of this strategic opportunity seven years ago as companies needed support in managing their constituencies more effectively. As a result, we set out to develop an expansive set of solutions to help them manage the growing complexity of their businesses and increasing regulatory requirements.
Today, the convergence of marketing, communications and investor relations functions presents an even greater opportunity for us to deliver on the growing needs of stakeholders and management of both mature and emerging companies.
By leveraging the best technology and solutions, we will deliver one of the most comprehensive and customer-centric offerings in the marketplace today.
From our vantage point, this is a tremendous opportunity for us to redefine and reshape the Corporate Solutions space and exceed our customer's expectations every day. We are indeed incredibly energized and excited by this prospect.
