CSE, OTC Markets Return to Israel for Second Joint Business Development Visit

Fourth visit by CSE over past 18 months

The Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) and OTC Markets Group  are pleased to announce a joint business development visit to Israel from April 29th through May 3rd for meetings with local entrepreneurs and advisors interested in accessing growth capital in North America.

Senior executives from the exchanges will be present to discuss a program for international issuers that promotes the multiple benefits of a combined CSE listing and OTCQX or QB quote in the US. This model provides an efficient framework for companies seeking public capital and liquidity in North America by leveraging the unique benefits of both marketplaces.

This is the second joint visit to Israel by the CSE and OTC Markets Group, following a successful series of meetings over five days in November 2017.  This will be the fourth trip to Israel by the CSE in the past 18 months.

Also participating in the visit, to lend insight into the current state of North American capital markets and the logistics of raising public capital, will be investment banking executives from Canadian dealers Leede Jones Gable and Echelon Wealth Partners.

“We are eager to continue building relationships with entrepreneurs in Israel’s business community, as the country remains an important centre of innovation and many of its companies are a natural fit for our listing model,” said Richard Carleton, CEO of the Canadian Securities Exchange.  “The strategic alliance between the OTC Markets Group and the CSE offers international growth companies a unique opportunity to access public capital in the United States and Canada.  We believe it is important for entrepreneurs, and for regional economies, to recognize that embracing a comprehensive public market presence in North America has the potential to benefit growth companies on a number of important fronts.”
