“In an increasingly complex and diverse marketplace, an effective investor relations program can enable a listed issuer to communicate their growth strategy, differentiate itself in the eyes of investors and position their company for long-term success,” said Loui Anastasopoulos, Managing Director, TSX Company Services, Equity Capital Markets, TMX Group. “More importantly, in support of the TSXV Revitalization Program, TMX’s initiative to invigorate Canada’s public venture market, this agreement also includes a service package tailored to the specific needs of TSXV companies. We remain committed to working closely with our issuers of every size and in every stage of development in pursuit of new ways to deepen the value we provide for our clients.”
