Listing of Chinese Companies on the Toronto Stock Exchange or TSX Venture Exchange


Originally published in The Canada China Business Forum - Fall/Winter 2012.

The Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V), which are part of the TMX Group in Canada, are receptive to new successful listings of Chinese companies. With the new TMX Group office opening in Beijing on November 14, 2011, Chinese companies now have greater exposure to the Canadian capital markets. From 2006 to 2011, an increasing number of Chinese companies were listed on the TSX or the TSX-V and the number of Chinese based companies listed on the TSX and TSX-V grew from 35 to 56. The total market capitalization of these companies grew from $3.9 billion to $4.6 billion at the end of 2011.

Chinese companies currently listed on the TSX or TSX-V belong to a variety of industries, with 36% in Diversified Industries, 16% in Mining and the remaining companies involved in other sectors such as Technology, Life Sciences, Harvest Products, Financial Services, Clean Technology and Oil and Gas.

While the European debt crisis is roiling the global financial markets, going-public activities have slowed but never stopped. The TSX and TSX-V welcomed 270 new listings as of September 30, 2012. This number consists of 152 companies, 65 Capital Pool Companies (CPCs), 36 exchange traded funds and 17 structured products. Of these new listings, 27 were international companies – 16 were from the United States, four from Australia, three from Latin America, one from Africa and three from Asia.
