DigiMax has recently announced that they have successfully been granted a designation as an ‘exempt market dealer’.
This designation, doled out by the Ontario Securities Commission, will allow for DigiMax to issue digital securities on behalf of their client, without the need for a prospectus. As a result, DigiMax will see their advisory, and issuance platform, become more flexible, providing client easier access to capital.
Exempt Market Dealer
For the majority of companies issuing securities within Canada, a prospectus is needed to remain regulatory compliant. There, however, exists a subset within capital markets, which allows for companies to forgo this step. This subset is known as an exempt market, and typically indicates that less protective measures are put in place for companies granted exempt status.

A prospectus is a form of documentation which is typically required by regulatory bodies, such as the Ontario Securities Commission. The documentation consists of a thorough outlining and description of a companies planned actions, pertaining to a capital generation event.

“We are very excited to have been granted registration as an EMD in the jurisdiction of Ontario in Canada…This registration allows us to serve Ontario based corporations and investors as an exempt market dealer in various forms of funding, and to market such offerings to institutional or accredited investors. Working with our growing network of similarly registered dealers in other countries, DigiMax Global Solutions is well on its way to becoming the leader of a global syndicate of dealers able to assist companies to raise capital around the world.”
