Canadian Securities Exchange Reports March 2022 Performance Figures
April 18, 2022 – Toronto, ON – The Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE” or “the Exchange”) today announced its market statistics for the month of March 2022.
March 2022 Operating Statistics
- Trading volume of CSE-listed securities totaled 2.0 billion shares;
- Trading value of CSE-listed securities was $1.0 billion;
- CSE issuers completed 71 financings that raised an aggregate $346 million; and
- The CSE welcomed listings from 13 new companies, including two fundamental changes of existing issuers, bringing total listed securities to 770 as at March 31, 2022.
“The Canadian Securities Exchange was built largely on the back of the mining industry, so we are delighted by the recent strength in this sector,” said Richard Carleton, CSE Chief Executive Officer. “During the month of March, mining companies on the CSE completed more financings and raised more capital than CSE-listed companies from any other sector. The activity was highlighted by Asante Gold Corp.’s $102.3 million financing, which represented the single largest financing completed by any of our mining issuers since 2016. With commodity prices booming and investor demand for mining securities remaining strong, our mining issuers are positioned for continued strength in the months ahead.”
