Capital Pool Company (TSX Venture)

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Capital Pool Company (TSX Venture)'

A new, fledgling company trading on Canada's TSX Venture exchange that has no commercial operations and no assets except for cash. A capital pool company (CPC) uses its cash holdings to evaluate promising businesses or assets that it would acquire in a qualifying transaction, which it has to complete within 24 months of listing. Companies trading as a CPC have a "P" after their ticker symbol. The completion of the qualifying transaction would enable the CPC to list as a standard Tier 1 or Tier 2 issuer on the TSX Venture exchange.

The TSX Venture exchange's CPC program is a unique offering that connects individuals who have financing and directorial experience with entrepreneurs whose early-stage companies need capital and management expertise.
