The CSE welcomed Draganfly Inc. (CSE:DFLY) to open the market on November 5th, 2019 at the CSE Media Centre.
Draganfly Inc. is an award-winning, industry-leading manufacturer, contract engineering, and product development company within the UAV space, serving the public safety, agriculture, industrial inspections, and mapping and surveying markets. The company is driven by passion, ingenuity, and the need to provide efficient solutions and first-class services to its customers around the world with the goal of saving time, money, and lives. Draganfly is positioning itself as an integrated solutions provider to the UAV industry, and celebrated their recent listing on the CSE.
“Today for us at the Draganfly team to open up DFLY on the Canadian Securities Exchange, it’s humbling, quite frankly. This is an exchange that’s built for entrepreneurs, and we’re a company of entrepreneurs. This company has been around for 20-plus years, we had lots of options and opportunities of where we wanted to list, and this particular exchange, at this time, for this project, it was absolutely the right place to be,” remarked Chairman Cameron Chell.
“There’s a tremendous opportunity in the market for a North American manufacturer and solutions systems provider with a patent portfolio like ours to be able to get market penetration. And there’s about a billion dollar opportunity over the next number of years for us to own, and we think that this is the right move for us in order to capitalize on that opportunity.”
Joining Chell at the Market Open were several members of the Draganfly team, including CFO Paul Sun, COO Pat Imbasciani, and Gowling WLG Partner Denis Silva.
