The company hereby authorizes NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc., including all subsidiaries (“NASDAQ OMX”), to use, without any remuneration, the company’s corporate logos, trade names, and trade/service marks in order to spread information regarding the company in connection with any of the NASDAQ OMX markets. In addition, the company’s approval allows NASDAQ OMX to include the company’s corporate logos, trade names and trade/service marks in other communication materials (web pages, video, audio, electronic broadcasts, print promotion and advertising) to further increase awareness of the company among investors.
In order to ensure the accuracy of the information, the company agrees to provide NASDAQ OMX with the company’s current corporate logos, trade names, and trade/service marks and with any subsequent changes. By signing, the company indicates that the use granted is indemnified and held harmless from any third party rights and/or claims, without waiver of any legal privileges.
Other than the rights granted here, NASDAQ OMX acknowledges that it has no other rights in the company’s corporate logos, trade names, and trade/service marks.
AUTHORIZED SIGNATURE DATE
To help investors recognize companies listed on the NASDAQ OMX markets, NASDAQ OMX uses company logos, where appropriate, instead of trading symbols. Company logos are included on the MarketSite® Video Wall and Tower located in New York Times Square, and on websites, including NASDAQOMX.com, NASDAQOMXTrader.com and NASDAQ OMX Nordic Online.
GUIDELINES FOR ARTWORK
Since NASDAQ OMX implements your logo across varied media (with distinct requirements), all logo submissions must be in EPS (encapsulated Postscript) format created in a vector drawing program (Adobe Illustrator or Macromedia Freehand).
Three versions of the company logo are required (or six if both horizontal and vertical aspect versions are available):
1 version in color (for use on NASDAQOMX.com and NASDAQOMXTrader.com)
1 version in color suitable for black background (for NASDAQ OMX Nordic Online and MarketSite)
1 version in grayscale (for black and white print ads).
All fonts must be converted to outlines.
All required registered marks, trademarks and service marks should be part of the logo artwork.
Especially for print, logo color specs (Pantone® matching colors or four-color process equivalents) should be included in digital files.
Corporate tag lines cannot be part of the logo artwork.
NASDAQ OMX will not accept low-resolution flattened artwork or logos in the following applications and file formats: Adobe PageMaker or InDesign, Microsoft PowerPoint, Word or Excel, Corel Draw, or QuarkXpress.
