Private USA Companies

Is your company looking for new ways to raise capital? Some privately-held companies are finding that Canada holds attractive alternatives to traditional forms of American financing.

Canadian markets are drawing investments from around the world, and it's with good reason. The country's stock exchanges boast low-cost and liquid trading, and they are backed by a strong national economy. Public companies who issue securities in Canada also can reduce regulatory compliance costs, compared with some other markets.

Listing on a Canadian exchange is also a good option for smaller and mid-sized American companies that might have trouble getting the attention of the financial community, which may be more focused on larger transactions.

Companies in the technology, energy and natural resources industries may find Canada especially attractive. The Toronto Stock Exchange has become one of the largest exchange groups in the world for such companies. The country itself is rich in coal, petroleum, timber and metals, making it a natural magnet for businesses that deal in such industries. In fact, Canada is the United States' largest foreign supplier of energy, including oil, gas, uranium and electric power. The Toronto Stock Exchange lists more oil and gas issuers than any exchange group in the world, and is the single largest source of equity financing for mining issuers.

Greenebaum Doll & McDonald PLLC has assisted clients with transactions involving Canadian organizations, including the recent listing of Phoenix Coal Corporation on the Toronto Stock Exchange. If you wish to learn more about financing options in Canada, please call any member of the firm's Securities Team .
