These companies may satisfy the secondary market’s listing standards based in part on trading and pricing histories in Canada. Companies that are reporting issuers under the U.S. Exchange Act are eligible for listing on a U.S. exchange (e.g., NYSE, NASDAQ), subject to satisfying the listing requirements of the exchange.
