Capital Pool Company Program - A uniquely Canadian invention

The Capital Pool Company (CPC) Program is a unique Canadian invention that supports earlier stage private companies to complete a go public transaction. A Qualifying Transaction is effectively a reverse takeover of a CPC by an operating business that will access the capital, shareholders and expertise of the CPC to complete a listing on the TSX Venture Exchange or Toronto Stock Exchange.

It is the most common way that companies go public on TSX Venture Exchange and the program has an incredible track record as an ingredient in the success of many companies that have grown to be leaders in the Canadian markets.

THE 2-STEP CPC PROCESS
THE 2-STEP CPC PROCESS

Step 1 | CPC Initial Public Offering

The CPC program introduces investors with financial market experience to entrepreneurs whose growth and development-stage companies require capital and public company management expertise. Unlike a traditional IPO, the CPC program enables seasoned directors and officers to form a Capital Pool Company with no assets other than cash and no commercial operations, list it on TSX Venture Exchange, and raise a pool of capital.

Step 2 | Qualifying Transaction

The CPC then uses these funds to seek out an investment opportunity in a growing business. Once the CPC has completed its qualifying transaction and acquired an operating company that meets Exchange listing requirements, its shares continue trading as a regular listing on TSX Venture Exchange.
