The year 2017 may see more Canadian IPOs than ever before. With tech companies like Hootsuite Media Inc. and D2L Inc. rumoured to be considering IPOs in the second half of the year and leaders like Shopify already claiming space in the market, Canada is developing a solid repertoire of public companies that call the country home. With new federal funding dedicated to the expansion of the Canadian innovation, the future of Canadian business is looking brighter than in previous years.
We know that public companies — and their IR teams — face extraordinary challenges in making strategic decisions based on investor needs. With the wealth of information available, it’s more important than ever to have a solid method to sort through what’s important so that data becomes something you can use rather than feel overwhelmed by.
As a Canadian company, we’re very excited to launch Q4 Surveillance in Canada today. Q4 Surveillance is the first intelligence product built with input from Canadian issuers, to meet the unique needs and nuances of the Canadian market. With this launch, IROs are now better able to sift through large datasets and more effectively communicate with investors based on real-time data. You can read full press release here.
