These new digital offerings complement other issuer services launched by NYSE Euronext in recent months such as the NYSE Market Access Center (MAC ).

- NYSE Connect -- New collaborative forum for NYSE-listed company executives to stay connected, share best practices and ideas
NYSE Connect, a private online community built exclusively for NYSE- and NYSE Amex-listed company executives, is being developed in conjunction with Passenger, a Los Angeles-based leader in creating and managing private online communities that drive user advocacy and insight. The first of its kind among exchanges, NYSE Connect provides NYSE- and NYSE Amex-listed company executives faster access to market information and economic reports via webcasts, surveys and blogs, while also enabling them to collaborate with peers by sharing ideas and best practices.
“In a collaborative marketplace, static information isn’t enough,” said Scott R. Cutler, EVP, and Head of Listings, Americas , NYSE Euronext. “Building upon current data and information assets, listed company management can now communicate online via NYSE Connect, which offers unprecedented access to essential information, people, and capital in a high-level, exclusive forum.”
NYSE Connect will feature private webcasts and live chat sessions as well as online polls and surveys that enable NYSE-listed company executives to form collective views and opinion on industry best practices, current news and issues, in addition to engaging in dialogue with top analysts, the NYSE and peers.
“We are thrilled to serve the NYSE on this groundbreaking initiative to create a private online community,” said Steve Howe, Chief Executive Officer, Passenger. “NYSE Connect represents an exciting opportunity for Passenger and the NYSE to work together to foster innovation, connection and collaboration among NYSE listed companies.”
- NYSE Alliance Network -- Online marketplace for companies to sell their products and services to employees of other listed companies at an attractive loyalty discount.
The NYSE Alliance Network is an online resource where NYSE- and NYSE Amex-listed companies can market products and services to employees of other NYSE- and NYSE Amex-listed companies at a loyalty discount. “The NYSE Alliance Network gives our listed companies an important new, complimentary benefit to listing on our market,” said Mr. Cutler. “The ability to leverage our listed-company base, which includes many of the world’s leading brands, coupled with best-in-class technology will give our listed company community unparalleled access to a wide variety of products and services.”
