HELPING CLIENTS ACCESS
CAPITAL MARKETS

By taking companies public quickly and cost effectively, we help them access funds with the goal of minimal equity dilution.


We leverage capital market connections to source debt and equity and may participate as part of a syndicate or act as a finder.

RTO/CPC ROUTE

• Typically companies use a reverse takeover (RTO) merger with shell companies or capital pool companies (CPCs) for smaller companies wanting to go public

• A shell vehicle with no cash assets typically costs about C$500,000

SWAP/STOCK DIVIDEND ROUTE

• We use a stock swap and corresponding stock dividend method for a go public transaction

• Significantly reduces dilution vs a traditional RTO transaction

• Quicker and less expensive

• Fee: C$250,000 (can vary)

INVESTING IN COMPANIES

We provide direct and indirect debt (mezzanine and bridge loans)
and 
equity financing to help companies grow organically.

• We invest in public companies and private companies we are

taking public as well as standalone opportunities

 

 We look for successful management teams and attractive economic models

 

• We partner to support clients’ growth initiatives with appropriate financing and structured exits

• We leverage capital market connections to source debt and equity

 

• We may participate as part of a syndicate or act as a finder for a fee plus equity kicker
