TSX Group CEO makes first trip to China

    TORONTO, Oct. 12 /CNW/ - TSX Group CEO Richard Nesbitt leads a business
development group to China October 13-19, 2007. It's the third trip to China
by TSX officials this year and the first trip by Mr. Nesbitt. During his trip
to China, Mr. Nesbitt will attend the World Federation of Exchanges annual
meeting in Shanghai when he is expected to be appointed as a WFE Board member
for a second term, meet top officials from various government offices and
business associations and provide opening remarks at a Canadian road show in
Beijing next Friday before returning to Toronto.
    "China is an important market to TSX Group," said Mr. Nesbitt. "I am
looking forward to meeting with potential issuers and learning more about this
market where we see significant potential. We have more than 50 Chinese and
Chinese related companies listed on our exchanges and trips like this will
help us grow that list with quality companies that see the benefit of listing
on Canadian markets."
    The purpose of this visit is to continue to build on the momentum from
previous trips and further promote Canada as a strong player and destination
marketplace in the international capital markets arena. TSX Group's exchanges
are 7th largest in the world based on market capitalization data compiled by
the World Federation of Exchanges. TSX Group's exchanges are the world's
leading resources marketplaces with more mining and energy listings than any
other exchange group.
    Joining Mr. Nesbitt on this trip will be Richard Nadeau, Senior Vice
President of Toronto Stock Exchange and Annie Lin Tao, Manager Business
Development, and who is exclusively dedicated to TSX's Asian Business
Development initiatives.
    The TSX road show will take place between October 19-24th with seminars
on Canadian Capital Markets in Beijing, Zhengzhou, and Kunming. TSX Group will
be accompanied by a group of sponsors with extensive experience in doing
business in China and taking Chinese corporations over to the Canadian
markets. They are Ernst & Young LLP, Research Capital Corporation, Lang
Michener LLP, Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, Deloitte & Touche LLP and BMO
Nesbitt Burns.
