However, the company remains focused on growth through acquisitions and organic initiatives that enable entry and cross-selling opportunities into new markets at a low-cost and highly-flexible platform. The company displays its prudence by accelerating its non-transaction revenue base, which includes technology, listing and information revenues. This has been fueling organic growth for the securities exchange. Nevertheless, expense level still remains elevated, though Nasdaq has narrowed its 2016 operating expense guidance. Among others, intense competition and regulatory issues remain key concerns." (1/9/2017)
