TMX Clean Technology & Renewable Power Forums Introduce U.S. Cleantech Companies to Public Venture Capital



    LOS ANGELES, May 13 /CNW/ - TMX Group Inc. will hold the first TMX Clean
Technology & Renewable Power Forum today in Los Angeles at the Luxe Hotel
Sunset Boulevard. The breakfast will address how U.S. cleantech companies can
raise capital on Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange. Part of the
2009 U.S. Campaign to promote U.S. listings, the event is from 7:30am to 10am
and will include a keynote address by CEO Daniel Kunz of U.S. Geothermal, a
U.S.-based cleantech company listed on TSX, and the Public Venture Capital
Workshop.
    The 2009 U.S. Campaign marks the third year that TMX has embarked on a
listings roadshow in the United States but the first that cleantech has been
highlighted as a sector of focus. "TMX is continuing to invest in business
development activities in the U.S. despite the challenging economic
environment because we're confident that our equity exchanges present an
excellent financing alternative and will continue to do so when market
conditions improve," said Tom Kloet, CEO of TMX Group. "Given our strength in
the energy and technology sectors, we are especially well-suited to provide
clean technology companies access to global capital along with the ideal
analyst and investor audience."
    Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange collectively form the
world's largest energy market, listing 44% of the world's public energy
companies, and list the 2nd highest number of technology companies in North
America, creating a model market for cleantech companies. The exchanges also
comprise the most favored foreign listing destination for U.S. companies with
over 140 U.S. listings. With a significant percentage of trading activity on
the exchanges originating out of the U.S., TSX and TSXV offer issuers access
to international capital. Since 2007, there have been 30 new cleantech issuers
bringing the total number to 110, with a total of over $2 billion in capital
raised. Over 10% of TSX and TSX-V cleantech issuers are U.S. companies.
    The next TMX Clean Technology & Renewable Power Forum will take place in
San Diego on May 14, 2009. For more information about these events and the
