Exchange Names

News Brief

Last Friday, the NYSE Alternext US LLC changed its name to the "NYSE Amex LLC". You may recall that the NYSE Alternext US LLC was christened only last fall when the SEC approved the acquisition of the American Stock Exchange by NYSE Euronext. Apparently, the NYSE has now decided that for "branding" purposes it is a good idea to retain the AMEX moniker.

Another recent, albeit less drastic name change, was the change last April from "Pink Sheets LLC" to "Pink OTC Markets Inc." That change reflected the change from a limited liability company to a corporation.
