TORONTO, May 6, 2020 /CNW/ - Staff members of TMX Group, alongside their spouses and children, joined John McKenzie, Interim Chief Executive Officer, and Loui Anastasopoulos, President Capital Formation, Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange, for Canada's first virtual market open, in which families shared messages of gratitude for the first responders and essential workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
For more than 20 years, market open ceremonies have celebrated the achievements of business leaders, governments, charities and the capital markets community. As we adapt to our new reality, we celebrate the resilience of our communities through our first market open in 50 days. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, TMX public spaces remain closed, with over 95% of TMX employees working from home.
From everyone at TMX Group, we express our heartfelt appreciation to all who are dedicating their time and energy to help save lives and flatten the curve.
For Market Openings: Media may pick up a feed from the TOC (television operations centre) for all market open ceremonies. The feed is named TSX Transmit 1 (SD-SDI) and is produced at the TMX Broadcast Centre and sent live to the TOC. To pick up the feed via the Dejero network, please contact [email protected]. The client feature video will begin playing on the TMX media wall at approximately 9:27 a.m. ET and the markets will open with the sound of a siren at 9:30 a.m. ET
