WHY GO PUBLIC?

CAPITAL SOLUTIONS

For early-stage companies looking to gain access to public venture capital - or larger, established companies looking to take their business to the next level, going public may be the right fit for your company. Our two-tiered market offers financing and liquidity solutions that can be as unique as the businesses it serves.

GO PUBLIC - WAYS TO GET LISTED

There are multiple pathways to listing on TSX and TSXV.

TSX and TSXV Listed company initiatives

TSX30

The TSX30 is a ranking of the top 30 performers on the Toronto Stock Exchange, over a three-year period based on dividend-adjusted share price appreciation.

As an annual flagship recognition program for TSX’s top performers to provide insights into the broad market trends that have been driving the best returns for investors, the TSX30 tells an important story; there is value in looking at the performance of small and mid-cap companies across TSX.

TSX VENTURE 50

The TSX Venture 50 is a ranking of the top ten performers on the TSX Venture Exchange over the last year, comprising of 10 companies from five industry sectors.

This annual program showcases the top performing listed companies from five industry sectors, including: Clean Technology and Life Sciences, Diversified Industries, Energy, Mining, and Technology. Selection is based on 3 equally weighted criteria: share price appreciation, trading volume, and market capitalization growth.

The key benefit of this two-tiered market (TSX Venture and TSX) is the potential for early-stage growth companies to list on TSXV, grow and when ready, graduate to TSX. Nearly 36% of current TSX-listed technology companies started on TSXV.
