SOME OF THE MANY BENEFITS OF CROSS-LISTING YOUR COMPANY

 

Financial Gains

 

LOWER COST OF CAPITAL

Through a cross-listing on the NEO Exchange, your company can lower its
cost of capital by reaching more investors.
 
This broader reach will reduce the market risk premium because of the
higher level of investor diversified cation amplified on a stock exchange
such as NEO, which focuses on transparency, liquidity, and fairness.
 

SECONDARY MARKET FOR ACQUISITIONS

By establishing an anchor listing on NEO, you are able to benefit from a
secondary market of your shares in Canada that can be used for North
American acquisitions, as well as improve retention and potential
recruitment of North American managers and employees.
 

Trading

 

LIQUIDITY

A NEO cross-listing will contribute to share value by providing liquidity
to Canadian investors and increasing exposure to the Canadian capital
markets of your shares through a platform that gives priority to long-term
investors via its speed bump, a designated market marker program providing
real and reliable liquidity, as well as the cross-border arbitrage
considerations whereby narrower spreads will be generated.
 

TRADING VOLUME

Through a NEO cross-listing an increase in total trading volume and market
depth will emerge for your company’s shares.
 

PRICE DISCOVERY

An additional advantage of a cross-listing on NEO is that it facilitates
the process of assessing share value at the beginning of a trading session
in two different markets. At the opening of trading on both NEO and OTCQB
prices will be less volatile for your shares as a result of being traded
simultaneously on the other exchange.
 

Market Awareness

 

INCREASED SHAREHOLDER BASE

A NEO cross-listing will bring your shares closer to Canadian investors as
it increases investor awareness, corporate visibility and information flow
across North America. This will also allow the market to make faster, more
accurate decisions.
 

INVESTOR/CUSTOMER RECOGNITION

Your company can generate increased investor and customer recognition with
a NEO cross-listing. A cross-listing will increase media coverage for
investors and potential customers as well as boost the number of analysts
covering your stock which tends to improve the accuracy of earnings
forecasts. Additionally, with the expanded investor base the demand for the
shares will rise.
 

BONDING EFFECT

As Canada has a high investor protection rating at 7.71, by
bonding with the Canadian market through an anchor listing on NEO, your
company will be able to show the market that its regulatory disclosure has
been reviewed by two additional regulatory agencies– specifically the
securities commission in Canada and the NEO Exchange, re-enforcing the
company’s commitment to investor protection.
