Canadian Securities Exchange Reports February 2024 Performance Figures

March 15, 2024 – Toronto, ON – The Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE” or “the Exchange”) today announced market statistics for February 2024.

February 2024 Operating Statistics

  • Trading volume of CSE listed securities totaled 1.0 billion shares;
  • Trading value of CSE listed securities was $404 million;
  • CSE issuers completed 66 financings that raised an aggregate $66 million; and
  • The CSE welcomed listings from three new companies, bringing total listed securities to 812 as at February 29, 2024.

“While the current market conditions are challenging for emerging companies, we are encouraged to see strong investor interest in small-cap securities,” said Richard Carleton, CEO of the CSE. “The recent PDAC conference in Toronto was well attended and the mood on the conference floor was positive. And as described below, we have a very busy start to the spring conference season, with numerous exciting events that will spotlight emerging growth companies. With interest rate cuts expected later this year, we believe that positive momentum is building.”

What’s On at the CSE

The CSE is proud to be sponsoring the Capital Links Investor Event, which takes place in connection with THE PLAYERS Championship golf tournament this weekend in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
