U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has approved the name change of the former NYSE Alternext US to NYSE Amex. NYSE Amex, formed by NYSE Euronexts acquisition of the former American Stock Exchange last year, is U.S. equities market for listing and trading small and mid-cap growth companies.

The NYSE Amex platform offers its listed companies price discovery, liquidity and reduced trading volatility beyond the capabilities of markets that are solely electronic. NYSE Amex-listed companies benefit from issuer-selected Designated Market Makers who utilize world-class NYSE trading and surveillance systems.

NYSE Amex represents the U.S. focus of NYSE Euronext in growth-oriented public companies, says Scott Cutler, executive vice president, NYSE Euronext. The more than seven hundred issues that joined us through our acquisition of the American Stock Exchange are uniquely positioned to take advantage of our market model, customized services and advocacy.
