KEY BENEFITS FOR U.S COMPANIES

  • 1
    Access to Capital
    Going public can provide your company with financing opportunities to grow your business via expansion of operations, hiring or acquisitions.
  • 2
    Long-Term Growth
    As a public company, your shares can be used as a currency substitute to acquire target companies, instead of a direct cash offering. Using shares for an acquisition can be a tax-efficient and cost-effective vehicle to finance such a transaction.
  • 3
    Increase Visibility And Prestige
    Going public enhances your company’s visibility. Greater public awareness gained through media coverage, publicly filed documents and coverage of your shares by sector investment analysts can provide your company with a higher profile and greater credibility.
  • 4
    Provide Liquidity For Shareholders
    Becoming a public company establishes a market for your company’s shares, providing your investors with an efficient and regulated vehicle in which to trade their shares.
  • 5
    Create Employee Incentive Mechanisms
    Your employees can participate in the ownership of your company and benefit from being shareholders. Share ownership can have an immediate and tangible value to employees, and can be used as a recruitment incentive.

Taking U.S. Companies Public Through a Capital Pool Company (fireside chat with Manny Padda, Founder of New Avenue Capital)

February 10, 2021

Learn about how CPC Founder, Manny Padda, recently helped take Tantalus Systems (TSXV: GRID), a North-Carolina based Smart Grid solutions provider public via the Capital Pool Company Route.

For those unfamiliar with CPC's - they essentially operate in a similar fashion to SPAC's but on a smaller level. These are clean operating vehicles that are publicly-listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and with seasoned directors/officers on the board look for a private company to vend in. It's usually an easier, less costly, and more efficient route for earlier-stage companies.
