NZX looking at future of news agency

03:56, Dec 10 2013

NZX is considering options for its NewsRoom news agency, which the stock exchange operator bought in 2007.

The process followed a recently completed strategic review of NewsRoom, NZX spokeswoman Kate McLaughlin said.

The review of options included looking at whether there was a "higher-value owner" - someone for whom NewsRoom would be a more strategic asset than it was for NZX.

"The process is being run in a structured way, aiming to ensure NewsRoom operations continue in their normal manner while the process is under way," McLaughlin said.

"Ensuring NewsRoom clients and staff are looked after is a key consideration for NZX during this process."
