CSE Chairman puts “our mouth where our money is” with Urbana listing on CSE

Urbana CorporationProactive Investors recently profiled one of CSE’s newest listings – Urbana Corporation – a closed-end investment company (CSE:URB and CSE:URB.A). The company’s Chairman, Thomas Caldwell is also the Chairman of CSE – Canadian Securities Exchange. In the article much is discussed around the reasons for co-listing URB shares on CSE. Other highlights from the article include:

  • A clear explanation of how the CSE listing model works and how it focuses on regular monthly disclosure from issuers in favour of exchange merit reviews from the exchange;
  • Prospects for the closed-end investment fund model that Urbana utilizes – predicting this will be a more popular vehicle as mutual funds lose their appeal;
  • Some insight into Urbana’s investment philosophy and the unique things the fund can do due to it’s size.

(CSE:GNR) and RESAAS Services Inc. (CSE:RSS) and their respective performances in 2013 as well as what has been driving their recent successes.

Of particular interest is how both of these technology companies have approached the challenges of growing their businesses and how they’ve sought the additional capital to support that growth.

Highlights from the article include:

  • How Gener8 Media Corp has become a leading provider of 2D to 3D conversion for the entertainment industry;
  • Gener8’s capital raising strategy and how it has helped to transform their business;
  • The success of RESAAS’s online social platform designed around real estate agents;
  • How RESAAS has managed its resources to enable them to compete for additional revenues.
