Whether a company is celebrating a new listing on Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) or TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) or a subsequent corporate milestone, we are delighted to host their Market Open Ceremony* at the TMX Broadcast Centre in the heart of Toronto’s financial district.
Listing on TSX or TSXV is one of the most exciting days in a businesses’ growth for both staff and shareholders. To mark the occasion, we invite new listings to ‘Open the Market’ with Canada’s capital markets as their backdrop. In addition, if a company is issuing a new ETF, celebrating a corporate milestone, or a notable anniversary, the Market Open Ceremony can be an excellent opportunity to celebrate recent successes.
Calgary-based Prairie Sky Royalty Ltd. (TSX:PSK), for instance, celebrated their initial public offering (IPO) on TSX in May 2014 with a Market Open Ceremony. At nearly $1.5 billion, Prairie Sky’s IPO was the second-largest public offering in the history of the exchange. The company’s President and CEO joined Kevan Cowan, President, TSX Markets and Group Head of Equities, TMX Group, and Tom Kloet, CEO, TMX Group, to open the market to celebrate their listing on TSX.
WestJet Airlines Ltd. (TSX:WJA) celebrated an important corporate milestone with a Market Open Ceremony. The company first listed on TSX in 1999 and marked the 15thanniversary of being a publicly listed company with a market open. WestJet also held their annual general meeting (AGM) in the TMX Gallery on the same day, the company’s first AGM outside of Calgary.
