Canadian Securities Exchange’s November 2021 Performance Includes Strong Listings Growth and New Financing Milestone
December 15, 2021 – Toronto, ON – The Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE” or “the Exchange”) today announced its market statistics for the month of November 2021, which was highlighted by near-record listings growth and a new financing milestone.
November 2021 Operating Statistics
- Trading volume of CSE-listed securities totaled 2.6 billion shares;
- Trading value of CSE-listed securities was $2.1 billion;
- CSE issuers completed 82 financings that raised an aggregate $250 million;
- There were 21 new listings, the third highest monthly total in the CSE’s history, bringing total listed securities to 736 as at November 30, 2021; and
- The aggregate market value of CSE issuers was $47 billion as at November 30, 2021, compared to $42.1 billion at year-end 2020.
“The total capital raised by CSE issuers in 2021 surpassed $7 billion during November,” said Richard Carleton, CSE Chief Executive Officer. “That is easily a record high. Our previous record for an entire year was in 2018, when the total capital raised was approximately $5.4 billion. In addition to the continued strength in trading and financing activity on the CSE, we are excited that our proposal to revise our listing policies and create a senior tier on the Exchange is moving closer to fruition, as a public comment period with regulators is now underway. We believe the proposal is clearly in the best interests of our issuers and the entire investment community.”
Revision of Listing Policies
As noted above, the CSE’s proposal to materially revise its listing policies is currently open for public comment with the Ontario Securities Commission and British Columbia Securities Commission. Key features of the proposal are to create a senior tier for the CSE’s larger and more advanced issuers, and to update listing requirements for earlier stage companies.
