Products Alternative growth market

First North is the alternative growth market established by OMX designed for small and growing companies. It was bought by Nasdaq.

In February 2009, Nasdaq OMX Group launched a new segment of First North called First North Premier. The new segment is for companies who want their shares to be traded on the First North growth market but also want to comply with the more rigorous disclosure and accounting rules of the main Nasdaq OMX Nordic market. Companies in First North Premier will, for example, have to use International Financial Reporting Standards for accounting and financial reports. [1]

So far, seven companies have been approved for trading on First North Premier: Aqueri Holding; Black Earth Farming; CellaVision; Entraction; Guava; Precio Systemutveckling and Tretti.[2]
