Global Water Resources, a pure-play water resource management company, announces that it has applied for a voluntary delisting of its common shares from the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). Subject to such application being accepted by the TSX, it is expected that the Common Shares will be delisted from the TSX effective as of the close of markets on February 24, 2023.
Global Water has decided to pursue the voluntary delisting of the Common Shares following an internal assessment of the relative advantages and disadvantages associated with the continued listing of the Common Shares on the TSX. In arriving at the determination to delist the Common Shares from the TSX, Global Water considered, among other things, the financial and administrative burdens associated with maintaining a TSX listing, the minimal trading volume of the Common Shares on the TSX and the availability of an alternative market for the Common Shares on the Nasdaq Capital Market (the “NASDAQ”).
The Common Shares will continue to be listed and trade on the NASDAQ under the symbol “GWRS”. Holders of Common Shares in Canadian brokerage accounts are encouraged to contact their brokers to confirm how to trade their Common Shares on the NASDAQ following the delisting of the Common Shares from the TSX.
In accordance with the TSX Company Manual, the TSX does not require shareholder approval of the voluntary delisting of the Common Shares from the TSX, as an acceptable alternative market will exist for the Common Shares on the date of delisting.
Global Water intends to apply for an order to cease Global Water from being a reporting issuer under applicable securities laws of each of the provinces and territories of Canada as soon as practicable following the delisting of the Common Shares from the TSX. Upon the granting of such order, Global Water will no longer be a reporting issuer in any jurisdiction of Canada.
