Exchange advances initiative to revitalize Canada's public venture market with new program to enhance liquidity

July 6, 2016 (TORONTO) – TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) today announced the launch of a new issuer-sponsored market making service designed to enhance liquidity for public venture companies. In the optional TSXV LiquidityPro program, TSXV companies can select from a pool of pre-qualified TSXV LiquidityPro Providers (LPPs) that can provide quotation services, facilitate price discovery and increase overall liquidity for issuers under the oversight and governance of TSXV.

"While we are certainly encouraged by the surge in performance year to date, our efforts to address key challenges affecting our venture markets continue," said Kevin Sampson, Managing Director, Equity Trading, TMX Group. "The launch of TSXV LiquidityPro is an important step forward in our revitalization initiative and represents vital collaborative work we have done with our stakeholders to ensure TSXV remains the world's most successful venture market into the future."

Key features of TSXV LiquidityPro include a centrally-managed competitive bidding process for licensed and pre-qualified TSXV LPPs, service levels and fees tailored to each security, monthly reporting to issuers providing full transparency around their LPPs' performance and activity, and TSXV quality governance and administration of the service. TSXV LiquidityPro is scheduled for launch in September 2016.
