As one of the leading exchanges of the world, the Toronto Stock Exchange and the TSX Venture Exchange provide both domestic and international businesses with access to significant international capital. Paul Davis and Sandra Zhao of McMillan LLP will review the principal ways of going public in Canada: an initial public offering (IPO); a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) and capital pool company (CPC) qualifying transaction on the TSX and TSX-V, respectively; and a reverse takeover transaction (RTO). They will discuss the mechanics, benefits and challenges of each method and provide insight into the Canadian capital markets from a legal perspective. 多伦多证券交易所(TSX)和多伦多证券风险交易所(TSX-V)是矿业公司的世界第一交易所,也是世界各地技术公司的最佳选择。在加拿大上市能为中国企业提供获得大量的资本和国际性的明显度等机会。在这个一小时的会议中,铭伦律师事务所的戴保罗和赵雪将为您解说在加拿大上市的主要方式:首次公开发行(IPO),专用并购上市公司(SPAC)和资本库公司(CPC)分别在TSX和TSX-V上的合格交易,以及反向收购交易(RTO)。他们将讨论每种方法的步骤、优势和挑战,并从法律角度为您深入分析加拿大资本市场。

Moreover, as one of the leading countries for listed issuers in the mining, natural resources and technology industries, Canada is a natural choice for foreign companies looking to do or expand their business in these sectors. One way for an international company to tap into the Canadian market is by acquiring a Canadian company already listed on a Canadian exchange. Paul and Sandra will discuss the various ways to acquire a Canadian public company, and provide insight into the issues, steps and Canadian approvals that Chinese companies and acquirors in general should consider when contemplating an M&A transaction in Canada. 此外,作为矿业、自然资源和科技行业上市发行人的主要国家之一,加拿大是寻求在这些行业做生意或拓展业务的外国公司的自然选择。外国公司进入加拿大市场的途径之一就是收购一家已经在加拿大某交易所上市的加拿大公司。 戴保罗和赵雪将会讨论收购加拿大上市公司的各种方法,及中国公司或中国收购方在加拿大做并购交易时应当考虑的问题、步骤和加拿大方面需要的批准。
