Nasdaq OMX’s earnings rise

City A.M. Reporter
NASDAQ OMX Group yesterday reported a higher fourth-quarter profit as an increase in non-transaction-based revenues outweighed an industry-wide drop in trading volumes.

Net income attributable to the transatlantic exchange operator totalled $85m (£51m), or 50 cents a share, up from $82m, or 45 cents a share, a year earlier.
