2012 EMDA Exempt Market Conference & EMDA Awards – Exempt Market Deals of the Year
The EMDA was very pleased to recieve a positive response
from the industry about the inaugural 2012 EMDA Exempt Market
Conference and 2012 EMDA Awards – Exempt Market Deals of the
Year that took place last June.
The conference addressed key issues in the exempt market
and provided practical information for EMDs, issuers, and
professional advisers in the exempt market.
Attendees had an opportunity to hear from the regulators
on how they are pursuing registrant misconduct, explore TSX-V
deal opportunities and challenges in distributing exempt products
(syndicates, jurisdictions and investor interests), and took a closer
look at several important market sectors of the exempt market
including mining, precious metals and hedge funds.
The EMDA extends its thanks to all the Award nominees and
winners for their hard work and contributions to our industry. The
EMDA is proud to start recognizing and celebrating some of the
leaders driving the success of the exempt market.
