OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian bank DNB, the largest owner of Oslo Bors VPS, will continue to support Nasdaq’s bid for the stock market operator even if Euronext were to raise its rival offer, a spokesman said on Monday.
“Nasdaq is definitely the best industrial owner of Oslo Bors VPS,” said a DNB spokesman.
Asked whether a potential higher bid by Euronext could change DNB’s mind, he said: “It wouldn’t change our conclusion”.
DNB owns close to 20 percent of the Oslo Bors.
