The decision to go public represents a turning point in the life of any Company. Pursuing a stock exchange listing requires a coordinated effort by both a Company’s senior management and board of directors as well as its legal and financial advisors. Although a public listing imposes regulatory constraints and places new reporting and disclosure obligations on a Company, it also provides the Company with financing opportunities to grow its business, enhances the Company’s visibility and provides liquidity for its shareholders.
Dentons has assisted countless companies in completing an initial listing on the TSX and have worked with many other already publicly listed companies in Australia, South America or the United States who are seeking a dual listing on the TSX.
