(NEW YORK) -- Botching one of the most anticipated IPOs ever is proving costly for the NASDAQ stock market.
With much fanfare Mark Zuckerberg sounded the NASDAQ opening bell on the day Facebook became a publicly traded company. The IPO was marked by delays, glitches and confusion and NASDAQ was accused by securities regulators of failing to properly manage it even though it knew Facebook's IPO "would be among the largest in history."

A computer problem stalled tens of thousands of buy and sell orders.
NASDAQ has now agreed to settle the charges by paying a $10 million penalty, the largest ever against an exchange.
