Issuers, boards of directors, investors and underwriters draw upon the broad set of skills and experience of our capital markets team. Our clients include a diverse array of public, private and institutional entities, from emerging organizations to established multinationals, investment and merchant banks to venture capitalists, provincial governments to foreign exchanges, and hedge funds to pension funds.
Clients, boards of directors, special committees and management teams in the oil and gas, mining, telecommunications, technology, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and power industries, to name a few, rely upon our extensive capital raising, mergers and acquisitions, risk management, corporate governance, shareholder activism and restructuring expertise. Our capital-raising efforts have involved public and private offerings of equity and debt securities—in Canada and internationally. Specific transaction experience includes initial public offerings, new issues and secondary offerings, cross-border offerings, acquisition financing, rights offerings and high-yield debt offerings.
We have extensive experience engaging with securities commissions and stock exchanges in Canada and abroad to address regulatory compliance matters for our clients. Leveraging our firm-wide resources, we bring effective communication, seamless integration and practical advice to the task of helping our boards of directors, management and compliance teams, investor relations professionals and shareholders navigate the complex securities regulatory environment in which they operate. Our group is a leader in the evaluation of environmental, social and corporate governance matters for our clients and we frequently work directly with boards and management teams to ensure tailored governance principles and structures are in place to meet evolving best practices.
