TORONTO, Dec. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. (TSX.V:EGLX)(FSE: 2AV) (“Enthusiast Gaming” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has received conditional approval to graduate from the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) to the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”). Enthusiast Gaming’s common shares will commence trading on the TSX under the same ticker symbol “EGLX”. The Company anticipates trading on the TSX will commence in January 2020.
According to the TMX Group, there are 1,933 companies listed on the TSXV(1) and only 21 graduated to the TSX year to date. In 2018, only 12 TSXV listed companies graduated to the TSX. Making the transition from being a TSXV listed company to a TSX listed company is an accomplishment for any public issuer, and it’s evident that only a small fraction of listed companies are able to make that transition. The up-listing will be a significant milestone for Enthusiast Gaming, and follows a number of important corporate actions since closing the merger between Enthusiast, Aquilini GameCo, and Luminosity Gaming in August 2019.
Final approval of the listing is subject to the Company fulfilling certain customary conditions required by the TSX. The Company will issue a statement once the TSX confirms the date on which trading on the TSX will commence. Upon satisfaction of the final listing requirements, the Company’s common shares will be delisted from the TSXV and commence trading on the TSX. Shareholders will not be required to take any action.
