Canadian Securities Exchange Reports May 2023 Performance Figures

June 20, 2023 – Toronto, ON – The Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE” or “the Exchange”) today announced its market statistics for May 2023.

May 2023 Operating Statistics

  • Trading volume of CSE-listed securities totalled 1.25 billion shares;
  • Trading value of CSE-listed securities was $443 million;
  • CSE issuers completed 73 financings that raised an aggregate $61 million; and
  • The CSE welcomed listings from seven new companies, including one fundamental change of an existing issuer, bringing total listed securities to 830 as at May 31, 2023.

“The Canadian Securities Exchange is becoming increasingly attractive to existing and potential new issuers,” said Richard Carleton, CEO of the CSE. “As we recently announced, all of our securities are now margin eligible, which brings significant benefits for issuers and the broader investment community. The Exchange also continues to strengthen with high-quality new listings across diverse industries. We are proud to have welcomed 44 new corporate listings to the CSE in the first five months of 2023, which is easily the most among Canadian stock exchanges.”

Margin Eligibility

All CSE-listed securities are now eligible for margin after the Canadian Investment Regulatory Organization recently identified the CSE as an “acceptable exchange” under its margin eligibility rule. Investment dealers will have the choice to allow clients to hold CSE-listed securities in margin accounts, thus enhancing liquidity in these securities. Margin eligibility also reduces capital costs for investment dealers holding CSE-listed securities in firm inventory, thereby reducing the cost of public offerings for issuers.
