* Based on 163,742,074 shares of Common Stock of Nasdaq, Inc. outstanding as of July 26, 2022, as disclosed by the Issuer in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 3, 2022, and giving effect to the three-for-one stock split of Nasdaq’s Inc.’s Common Stock with a distribution date of August 26, 2022.
 

This Amendment No. 4 to Schedule 13D relates to shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Shares" or "Common Stock"), of Nasdaq, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Nasdaq" or the "Issuer"), and amends the initial statement on Schedule 13D, dated January 24, 2011, Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D, dated February 9, 2011, Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D, dated March 10, 2011, and Amendment No. 3 to Schedule 13D, dated April 24, 2020 filed by Investor AB and the other persons named therein (together, the “Prior Statement” and, together with this Amendment No. 4, the “Schedule 13D”).  Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Prior Statement.

Item 2.
Identity and Background

Item 2 of this Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated as follows:

This Schedule 13D is being filed jointly on behalf of Investor AB and Innax AB (each a “Reporting Person”).  The agreement among the Reporting Persons relating to the joint filing of this Schedule 13D is attached as Exhibit 6 to Amendment No. 3 of Schedule 13D.  Innax AB, which holds the Shares reported in this Schedule 13D, is 100% owned and controlled by Investor AB.

The address of each of the Reporting Persons is Arsenalsgatan 8C, SE-103 32, Stockholm, Sweden.  Each of the Reporting Persons is organized under the laws of Sweden.  Investor AB is a publicly held limited liability company engaged principally in business as a diversified industrial holding company.  Innax AB is engaged principally in the business of making investments in securities.

The name, business address, present principal occupation or employment and citizenship of the directors, executive officers and control persons of each of the Reporting Persons is set forth on Schedule A hereto.

During the last five years, none of the Reporting Persons has, and to the best of the Reporting Persons’ knowledge and belief, no person named in Schedule A hereto, (i) has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors), or (ii) was a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction that resulted in a judgment, decree or final order enjoining the person from future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws, or a finding of any violation of federal or state securities laws.

Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction

Item 4 of this Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

At Nasdaq’s 2022 annual meeting of shareholders held on June 22, 2022, Nasdaq’s shareholders approved a certificate of amendment to Nasdaq’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock in connection with a three-for-one stock split of Nasdaq’s Common Stock (the "Stock Split") in the form of a stock dividend (the “Charter Amendment”). The Charter Amendment was also subject to the approval of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Charter Amendment was approved by the SEC on June 15, 2022. The Charter Amendment became effective upon its filing with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on July 19, 2022.

Each Nasdaq shareholder of record at the close of business on August 12, 2022 (the “Stock Dividend Record Date”) received, after the close of business on August 26, 2022, two additional shares for every one share held as of the Stock Dividend Record Date. Trading on a split-adjusted basis began on August 29, 2022. All per Share references give effect to and reflect the Stock Split.

 Mr. Jacob Wallenberg, Chairman of Investor AB, no longer serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Issuer. Certain provisions of the NASDAQ Stockholders’ Agreement have terminated pursuant to their terms, including, but not limited to, Board representation rights.


Other than as described in this Item 4, none of the Reporting Persons, nor, to the knowledge of each Reporting Person, any individuals listed in response to Item 2 hereof, has any current plans or proposals that relate to or that would result in any of the transactions or other matters specified in clauses (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D; provided that the Reporting Persons may, at any time, review or reconsider their position with respect to the Issuer and reserve the right to develop such plans or proposals.

Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer

Item 5 of this Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated as follows:

(a)         Each of Innax AB and Investor AB may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the 58,182,426 Shares held by Innax AB (approximately 11.8% of the total number of outstanding Shares based on 163,742,074 outstanding Shares of the Issuer as of July 26, 2022, as disclosed by the Issuer in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 3, 2022 after giving effect to and reflecting the Stock Split).

In addition, Mr. Jacob Wallenberg, Chairman of Investor AB and a former member of the Board of Directors of the Issuer, holds 27,381 shares of Common Stock, received by Mr. Wallenberg pursuant to the Issuer’s non-employee director compensation program. Pursuant to Rule 13d-4 under the Act, the Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership of any Shares held by Mr. Wallenberg.

(b)         Each of Innax AB and Investor AB may be deemed to have the sole power to direct the voting and disposition of the 58,182,426 Shares held by Innax AB.

(c)         To the best knowledge of the Reporting Persons, no transactions in the Shares have been effected in the past 60 days by any of the Reporting Persons or any of the other entities or individuals named in response to Item 2 hereof, other than Mr. Wallenberg surrendered 69 shares (reflected on a pre-split basis) to the Issuer on June 15, 2022 in connection with the vesting of previously granted shares of restricted stock.

(d)          To the best knowledge of the Reporting Person, no one other than the Reporting Persons, or the holders of interests in the Reporting Persons, has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the Shares.

(e)          Not applicable.

Item 6.
Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

Item 6 of this Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

The information set forth or incorporated by reference in Item 4 of this Schedule 13D is hereby incorporated by reference in this Item 6.
