Recently during one of the London visits Tom Kloet, TMX’s chief executive, in his interview for Financial Times announced that since now TMX will mainly target on the foreign markets outside Canadian territories. The company is counting on the further success of Maple Group deal. The main reason of changes in the strategic plans is considered in the goal of finding influential shareholders that will help with the expansion of Canadian market.
Currently about 33 European-Based companies along with Glencore and Katanga Mining are located in the main office of natural resources companies in Toronto. Kloet claims that TMX will start its growth with the emergent London office. He believes that according to the new strategy European and North American markets will have a number of shared values. This statement was made in a year after the deal between TMX and LSE was canceled on June 29, 2011. LSE leaders supposed that most likely bargain would not be supported by necessary two-thirds majority of TMX shareholders. Soon after the failure of this deal TMX was offered to start working in cooperation with the Maple Group, which is one of the biggest Canadian shareholders. This deal sounds very promising and Kloet believes that it will be improved by July 31.
Tom Kloet stated that at the present moment TMX fully realizes what an exchange is and their main target is to complete global M&A deal. Initially when exchange was opened in London it enlisted Atrium Network and Razor Risk Technologies. Currently the general amount of staff is the capital makes up 30.
Kloet is sure that small and medium-size businesses will help in the general economical development. Due to the current TMX structure, which includes two powerful bodies (Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Ventures Exchange) their offers could be in demand outside Canadian territories.
TMX developers believe that with the help of two-tiered market they will manage to become a public company and get enrolled in the list of senior market companies.
