GreenBank Capital Inc Receives Approval for Exempt Market Dealer License from Ontario Securities Commission

GreenBank Capital Inc. announced that its 100% owned subsidiary, GreenBank Financial Inc. has received approval for an Exempt Market Dealer License. GreenBank announced its intentions on May 28, 2014, and the application was made to the Ontario Securities Commission. The granting of the Exempt Market Dealers License now enables GreenBank Financial to commence investment banking transactions. GreenBank Financial now intends to identify public and private companies who may be candidates for its investment banking services, including corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, private placements and reverse mergers.

The Ontario Securities Commission Amends Schedule for Public Disclosure of Transaction-Level Derivatives Data

The Ontario Securities Commission announced further amendments to OSC Rule 91-507 Trade Repositories and Derivatives Data Reporting. The amendments delay the effective date for transaction-level data reporting by designated trade repositories until July 29, 2016 and also allow certain market participants to report under the European Union (EU) derivatives trade reporting rules. Delaying transaction-level public reporting allows OSC Staff further time to study current over-the-counter derivatives market data and develop appropriate publication delay mechanisms. Derivatives trade reporting is a recent development in Ontario, with the first phase having come into effect on October 31, 2014 for clearing agencies and dealers. The amendment to include the EU derivatives reporting rules is part of an ongoing effort to recognize as equivalent the rules of other jurisdictions where substituted compliance is appropriate. The amendments to the Rule are scheduled to come into effect on April 30, 2015.
