"TSX Venture Exchange provides a unique venue for small-cap, early-stage companies to access the capital they need to launch or expand - a market opportunity that is unparalleled globally," said John McCoach, President, TSX Venture Exchange. "We are delighted to recognize the success of these companies."
The TSX Venture Top 50 was selected from the 2,141 companies listed on TSX Venture Exchange as of December 31, 2013.

In support of the previously announced $6 million CDN Private Placement, Greenbriar has increased the offering to $7 Million USD and engaged Jacob Securities Inc., (Jacob) and Drexel Hamilton (Drexel) to supplement the initiative. In preparation for their marketing efforts, both Jacob and Drexel have reviewed our 80 MW Blue Mountain and 100 MW Montalva project data rooms and prepared a summary information sheet for accredited investors. The summary information sheet contains detailed project pro forma results assisted by our lenders and tax advisors. To prevent selective disclosure, the information sheet provides the combined projects return on sponsor equity of 38.26% when and if both projects are completed. This return threshold can vary if there are changes to equipment prices, interest rates, tax rates, construction costs, market conditions and completion dates. Capital expenditures for Blue Mountain and Montalva are $141 Million and $320 Million respectively, and financed at the project level by debt and tax equity. The marketing effort will commence the week of Feb. 18, 2014. A portion of the private placement has been either closed or paid as of today's date.
CEO Jeff Ciachurski commented "I am very delighted we are elected again to the TSX Venture Exchange Top 50. This acknowledgement of our focus, drive and hard work to bring value to all of our shareholders, serves as a notable indicator to the broader venture capital marketplace. We delivered great value to the Western Wind Shareholders and we strive to do the same for Greenbriar Capital Corp."
