Bitcoin company Hut 8 Mining first to trade on TSX via new listing initiative

Betakit | | Oct 4, 2019

bitcoin mining hut 8 lists - Bitcoin company Hut 8 Mining first to trade on TSX via new listing initiativeThis week, Hut 8 Mining Corp., a cryptocurrency mining and blockchain infrastructure company headquartered in Toronto, announced it would begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) on October 8.

In addition to expediting new listings and transactions, the Sandbox could also become a channel for new securities policy development.

The company is the first blockchain or cryptocurrency company to be listed on the TSX, and is also the first to be listed via the TSX Sandbox. The program aims to accept more listing applications and transactions, and grant access to newer companies that don’t meet all the traditional requirements to be listed, such as market capitalization, a long-form prospectus, management team’s experience level, incorporation in Canada, or corporate governance practices.

“Our move to the TSX, the senior public market of the TMX Group, is another significant step in our evolution to provide improved liquidity and enhanced public disclosure to investors,” Andrew Kiguel, CEO of Hut 8, said when the company first announced it would list last month.

“We are grateful to the TSX for conditionally approving Hut 8 to be the first company through the TSX Sandbox.”

The TSX said Sandbox will be a laboratory of sorts for new policies that would normally require longer consideration periods before being executed. A blog post from law firm Bennett Jones suggested the TSX Sandbox could also become a channel for securities policy development, as well as an expeditor of new listings and changes in capital structure, for issuers.

While in the TSX Sandbox program, Hut 8’s common shares will trade in the same way as other TSX-listed companies. Under the terms of the agreement, Hut 8 said it will exit the TSX Sandbox program upon the receipt of a prospectus, and no significant compliance issues for a 12-month period. If there are any significant compliance issues, the 12-month period will reset, Hut 8 said.

The TSX Sandbox does not have a designated list of eligibility factors or conditions in order to list, as the conditions are modified to fit each individual applicant. Sandbox is, however, only open to companies already listed on the TSX, and Hut 8 had previously been trading on the TSX Venture Exchange, an exchange for smaller companies, that is still owned by TSX.

Companies interested in Sandbox can request a pre-filing meeting before applying to the TSX Sandbox. Applications must consist of the same documents as those of a regular application, but should also add a submission requesting the application be reviewed by the TSX Sandbox. Applicants from all sectors and stages are eligible to apply to the TSX Sandbox.

Hut 8 has raised $140 million through private placements and debt, which do not require a public prospectus. Kiguel told BetaKit Sandbox allowed the company to “bypass” the requirement of a prospectus, which he said can be expensive and runs the risk of being declined by a provincial securities regulator like the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC).

The TSX Sandbox does not have prescribed eligibility requirements to list, as they are modified to each applicant.

“This would have resulted in substantial cash wasted,” Kiguel said. “While I’m not a lawyer, private placements require that investors meet certain accredited investors’ criteria before investing for investor safety. Thus, Hut 8’s private placements were only open to sophisticated investors and institutions. If we had filed and cleared a prospectus, anyone would be able to buy. That is more risky in my opinion for a startup.”

A spokesperson from the TSX told BetaKit the OSC is aware of and regulates the business of the exchange, but has no day-to-day involvement in the operations of Sandbox.

Kiguel said a private placement is quicker, less expensive, and targeted at sophisticated investors, which is a better mechanism for earlier-stage companies. He said shares offered through a prospectus are better for larger, more established companies seeking to raise large amounts of capital because they are available for purchase by anyone.

Silicon Valley VCs Are Planning to Get Bankers Out of the IPO Business

Fortune | Sonali Basak and Bloomberg | Oct 1, 2019

benchmark capital holdings - Bitcoin company Hut 8 Mining first to trade on TSX via new listing initiativePowerful figures are gathering 2,500 miles from Wall Street to redesign one of its oldest and most lucrative businesses -- but few from the industry will have a seat at the table.

Venture capitalists and executives from hundreds of private companies will meet in Silicon Valley on Tuesday to discuss whether the financial industry’s system for initial public offerings is still working after a year in which many of the biggest deals flopped. Attendees plan to discuss alternative strategies including direct listings, which replace financial underwriters with cutting-edge computer code.

“I’m not anti-banker, I’m pro-algorithm,” Bill Gurley, a general partner at venture capital titan Benchmark who is one of the meeting’s organizers, said in a phone interview. He said investment bankers are largely uninvited.

For months, he and others including Sequoia Capital’s Mike Moritz have been pitching the benefits of direct listings, in which computers shift privately held shares to public markets without banks buying giant blocks of stock and parceling them out to clients at a single price the night beforehand. Humans, Gurley said, have been systematically “mispricing” IPOs for decades. Fewer banks are typically involved in a direct listing, advising startups and helping to drum up investor interest.

See:  The Solution To The Fintech IPO Shortage

Gurley points to research by Jay Ritter, a professor at the University of Florida who studies how stocks perform after market debuts to judge whether top banks such as Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley are optimally pricing shares on behalf of budding ventures. His calculations show startups are often significantly underpriced.

To be sure, investors expect IPOs to feature first-day “pops” in price that reward the risk they take supporting a market debut. Yet while companies going public sometimes appreciate the positive press and the demand that such rallies create for future offerings, some entrepreneurs have lamented the money left on the table that could’ve gone into operations instead of speculators’ pockets.

While the biggest IPO advisers won’t be making their pitch, the Silicon Valley summit doesn’t totally exclude finance.

Doug Baird, a longtime banker at Citigroup Inc., and William Blair & Co.’s Carl Chiou are speaking on a panel titled “A Voice of Reason,” according to an agenda seen by Bloomberg. It’s sandwiched between presentations by Gurley and Ritter that are critical of the current IPO model.

‘We don’t have enough money’: Tech leaders debate constraints at Vancouver Startup Week

Vancouver Courier | Tyler Orton | Sep 20, 2019

Vancouver tech leaders debate VSW 2019 - Bitcoin company Hut 8 Mining first to trade on TSX via new listing initiativeGrowth in technology may be stymied without enough investment capital, say experts

It’s a rare feat for B.C. tech companies to lay claim to capital raises totalling more than $450 million over the course of 13 days.

Despite that recent tally, the current level of capital flowing into the province may not be enough to elevate the ecosystem to a level on par with other global leaders, according to experts speaking at Vancouver Startup Week.

B.C. Tech Association CEO Jill Tipping told a downtown Vancouver audience on Sept. 19 that the province has great startups and all the fundamentals for a solid tech sector. “But we don’t have enough money. I’ll state that boldly,” she said during a panel that also featured Foresight Cleantech Accelerator Jeanette Jackson and Innovate BC CEO Raghwa Gopal.

Tipping added there is not enough Series A funding coming in to early-stage companies and government funding is lacking.

“I just think it’s time B.C. gets serious about its technology-innovation economy,” she said.

Her industry association offers programming to startups in a bid to help them scale and grow.

Jackson said one big issue for B.C. is that it doesn’t have enough tech anchor companies that can attract the right type of investment capital that would then filter down to early-stage companies — those most in need of Series A funding.

Her organization is currently embarking on a cluster initiative aimed at fostering collaboration between small-to-medium-sized businesses, corporations, academic institutions and investors in a bid to grow the province’s cleantech sector.

Three B.C. tech companies made headlines over the past two weeks after Burnaby-based legal-tech firm Clio (Themis Solutions Inc) announced it had raised US$250 million (C$332 million), Vancouver-based Terramera Inc. announced it had raised US$45 million (C$60 million) and Vancouver-based Trulioo Information Services Inc. announced it had raised $70 million.

And while Gopal echoed Tipping’s sentiment about the province’s tech sector already possessing solid fundamentals, he said funding from venture capitalists and angel investors “could be improved.”

If the province wants to become even more attractive for investment, Gopal said it must continue to invest in training and education to ensure there is enough access to talent.

United Craft’s mantra is “Together is Better” because we believe that, by bringing great people and brands together, we can collectively achieve a lot more. This is especially the case in the craft community as most companies are relatively small and lack “big company” resources.  United Craft aims to connect great craft brewers with retailers and restaurants seeking delicious Ontario Craft beverages.  We combine our knowledge of the industry, propriety data analytics, business planning experience, online licensee web order portal, and province wide sales and event activation team to grow many of Ontario’s emerging brewers.

We own and currently distribute 12 different craft beers and cider under the brand names of Hops  & Robbers, Old Tomorrow, Eden Grove, Lokal, Double Trouble and (new in May) Highlander Scottish Ale and Blacksmith Smoked Porter.  We are the sales and marketing agent for Market Brewing brands Leslie Crusher and Bear Hug IPA.  Big, foreign competitors are waiting for all of us little guys to run out of steam – but by joining forces to combine resources we can keep fighting.  Together IS better.
