Ce billet est disponible en anglais seulement.

The Toronto Stock Exchange today released proposed changes to its Company Manual for public comment that would, among other things, create a new subcategory for oil and gas issuers in the development stage. Listing requirements under this subcategory would include contingent resources of $500 million and a minimum market value of the issued securities to be listed of $200 million.

The proposed changes to the Manual also include : (i) amendments intended to pre-empt avoidance of security holder approval requirements in the case of insider transactions regarding private placements; (ii) an exemption from security holder approval for employment inducements where the aggregate number of securities issued to officers under the exemption in the preceding year is no more than 2% of the outstanding securities; and (iii) removing the requirement that rights offerings must be unconditional.

Comments on the proposals are being accepted until March 7, 2011.
