Doing Business in the United States

Event Information


October 20, 2016


12:15 PM - 2:00 PM



Delivery Method

In Person


The panel will discuss the range of financing options open to Canadian companies seeking to access the U.S. capital markets. From conventional private placements to registered offerings with a U.S. listing, the opportunities for raising capital in the United States have never been broader, especially for Canadian companies eligible to use the Multijurisdictional Disclosure System. We will focus on the steps involved in the successful execution of various types of financings, how U.S. market practices and investor expectations differ from those in Canada, and the ongoing compliance implications involved. The panel will also consider the issues faced by Canadian companies that decide to cross the border and do business in the United States, whether by acquisition or through organic growth.
