Thomas Caldwell, President and CEO of Urbana Corporation (TSX:URB.A), and CNSX
Chairman stated, "We are pleased to welcome a business leader of Ned's stature
to the Board. With his contribution we expect to accelerate the steady growth
CNSX has seen this year, as we continue to enhance
CNSX's role as the 'Exchange
for Entrepreneurs' in Canada."
Ned Goodman commented, "I have been impressed for some time with CNSX's approach
to helping entrepreneurs access the public capital markets in Canada. The CNSX
model reduces the time and expense companies face in going public, and in
maintaining a listing, along with a high level of continuous disclosure. As a
lifelong entrepreneur I have no problem encouraging and inviting the management
and boards of entrepreneurial Canadian public companies to consider the benefits
of a CNSX listing."
Through Dundee, Goodman has been an early-stage investor in a number of sectors,
including energy, real estate, mining and metals.
Richard Carleton, CNSX CEO, added, "We have a number of programmes coming over
the next several months designed to support the capital formation process for
early stage companies which will enhance the resources CNSX makes available to
our issuers and the investment community".
With simple, fixed listing fees of $12,500 for an application and $500 per
month, the exchange has been attracting a number of new listings, recently
surpassing the 200 mark.
