Cannabis companies led the way in capital raising, accounting for nearly 81% of the financings on the CSE so far in 2019.

Among the new issuers on the Canadian exchange was security company GlobeX Data Ltd. (CSE:SWIS), energy firm MGX Renewables Inc (CSE:MGXR) and cannabis grower XPhyto Therapeutics Corp (CSE:XPHY).

The exchange’s CEO Richard Carleton said that the exchange is establishing itself as a major global stock exchange.

"Like other emerging exchanges, we began with a mandate to extend capital raising and liquidity to a new generation of companies, often in unique market segments, that incumbent marketplaces were unwilling to serve,” Carleton said in a statement.

“After 15 years of tremendous growth, we are now attracting larger, more mature companies onto our platform than we ever have in the past.”
