The exchange pointed to network connectivity issues from the cyber attacks and said it is hoping to resume on Friday.

“This decision not to re-open has been made while we focus on addressing the situation,” the bourse said in a statement.

The bourse took the call to not reopen the main board, NZX debt market and Fonterra Shareholders Market after trading was halted at 11:10 AM local time (2310 GMT). NZX will also close the derivatives market on Thursday.

“We continue to address the threat and work with cybersecurity experts and we are doing everything we can to resume normal trading tomorrow,” NZX said.
