EquityStory AG and OMX AB sign agreement on distribution partnership
Announcement on cooperation in order to utilise both partner’s distribution
channels in the Central Europe’s German language area as well as in the
Nordic and Baltic region.


Munich – 17/12/2007

EquityStory AG (ISIN: DE0005494165) and OMX have agreed to cooperate in the
field of distribution of corporate news with immediate effect. Clients will
now benefit from the optimal use of both partner’s distribution networks in
Central Europe’s German language area as well as in Scandinavia and the
Baltic states.

OMX started its news distribution service simultaneously with the
implementation of the EU-Transparency Guideline in the Nordic and Baltic
region. The service has been developed for OMX-listed companies to comply
with regulatory requirements. Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Estonia,
Latvia and Lithuania belong to the multi-country OMX Nordic Exchange.

The distribution of the corporate announcements will be carried out via
OMX’ distribution network and reach numerous news agencies, vendors,
banks, financial service providers, financial portals as well as the entire
media focussing on financial topics in the Nordic and Baltic region.

Peter Belling, Senior Vice President, Information Services, OMX: 'We are
proud that Equity Story has evaluated the news distributors in the Nordic
region and has found that OMX is the one with the strongest network. With
this agreement OMX will provide strong added value to customers of Equity
Story including corporate news from listed companies on OMX Nordic
Exchange. At the same time the agreement will create more content to our
customers on the receiver site; the media, banks and vendors which are
using our NewsClient and our feeds.'

Achim Weick, CEO of EquityStory AG stated: 'We are delighted for our
customers as the partnership with OMX on the news distribution service
guarantees the most optimal distribution of their corporate announcements
throughout Scandinavia and the Baltic states. We are continuously improving
our international distribution network and we are confident to announce
further cooperations in the near future.'
