Venture Exchange in 2012 
TSX and TSXV host 2012 Cantech Letter Awards to recognize top technology stocks 
TORONTO, Jan. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - During 2012, the technology sector experienced 
a resurgence in Canada. The top 35 technology issuers, ranked by market 
capitalization at December 31, 2012, had an average share price appreciation 
of 31% in 2012. More than half of these companies saw their share price 
increase by over 20% and only seven saw their share price decrease in 2012. 
"We are proud of the momentum our technology issuers showed in 2012," said 
Kevan Cowan, President, TSX Markets and Group Head of Equities. "Over 30% of 
the technology companies on TSX are graduates of TSXV, which is a testament to 
our unique two-tier exchange system. We support our issuers throughout the 
going public process and beyond. In doing so, we are pleased to see such 
strong investor interest in our world-class technology issuers." 
Technology companies at different stages of growth continued to have strong 
access to capital throughout 2012. Technology issuers raised $1.3 billion of 
new equity capital in over 55 financings. Over 170 technology companies are 
listed on TSX and TSXV with a combined market capitalization of over $45 
billion, as of December 31, 2012.

Canada. The Exchanges are a proud sponsor of the 2012 Cantech Letter Awards,
