    I am surprised the regulators are finally making it easier (if they go through with the proposal) for us little guys. None of us should be restricted from private placements! Let us choose our fate!

  2. Daryl F says:

    The problem is that when investors lose money, they complain and regulators react. That’s the problem with society: no one takes responsibility for their losses but take all the responsibility for their wins. When investors lose money, they blame someone else; the company, a newsletter writer, the news, a blog. Its a complete shame. And we wonder why regulators continue to make it harder for every one to invest.

    1. Bill C says:

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. Hopefully this proposal goes through and gives us a more equal playing field.

    any best thoughts on stocks for robots?

    1. I would definitely need that pack of food because even if I had a knife and a bow and arrows, I would likely still starve. I couldn't shoot an arrow to save my life, and I'm not sure I would be able to stab anything with a knife and kill it. Yikes. Survival fail. Oh, and I would want Logan for sure as well. Cute nerd warrior? *dies of happiness*

  4. Malcolm says:

    ALL existing shareholders wherever they are from should have the right to participate before anyone else as there holdings are devalued when they are unable to do so

  5. Daryl Williams says:

    One of my investments did a private placement recently at a price well below the market and included VERY rich three year warrants as well! It STUNK! This garbage needs to stop as quickly as possible.

    1. James says:

      More of a reason why every one should be able to participate. companies need money to operate and grow, that’s why they’re public. You are a prime example of someone who shouldn’t invest. You made a bad investment decision and now you’re complaining.

  6. Joe says:

    Clearly our economic theories have been archaic and we now know that in hindsight and surely the TSX rulings on private placements were equally archaic and it is time to change. This proposal’s time has arrived and it will pass if these morons begin to think logically.

  7. I hope the manipulation of gold and silver is not swept under the carpet they have stolen money from ordinary investors and should be punished like anybody else.In the past bank robbers robbed banks how times have changed Banksters are robbing ordinary people and dont get the punishment they deserve.The markets are rigged in favour of the rich.

  8. Nelson says:

    I don’t get it. There already is an exemption for distributions to existing shareholders. It’s called a “Rights Offering”. I assume the real reason that small investors have been left out of privates for small TSXV-listed companies is the paperwork involved in a rights offering as compared to a private placement. The regulators had better get it right, therefore, because if brokers are required to get their retail clients to fill out subscription forms, etc. instead of merely being able to ticket them like any other trade or prospectus-based offering, this will not accomplish what everyone hopes.

    1. Thomas says:

      A rights offering requires a prospectus. That’s why companies don’t do it because it costs too much.

      1. Nelson says:

        Not a prospectus (at least, not necessarily), but rather a circular. Still, to Thomas’s point, paperwork. That’s why I say that brokers had better be able to merely ticket their clients. Requiring hundreds of small investors to fill out private-placement subscription forms for small amounts will render this initiative ineffective. I confess I haven’t read the proposal, so it may be dealt with. My comments stem from a career of seeing well-intentioned initiatives such as this go nowhere because of the realities of the business that regulators don’t understand. Anyone remember the Exchange-offering Prospectus?

        1. Frankie says:

          I am sure they will still hVe to fill out sub forms. It’s a lot less work than a prospectus so it’s still worth it.

          My two cents

  9. Santa Clause says:

    Terrible idea! Over the past year we have seen lots of angry shareholders who have lost money, lots of money. These novice investors are the bulk of retail investors. It is bad enough that they fall for every promo and sales pitch thrown their way and lose their shirts in the process. I don’t think that the private placement rules should be changed to allow venture companies to prey on ignorant investors. This will just lead to more anger, frustration and losses for the retail investor.

    1. Peter says:

      investors shouldn’t invest if they can’t lose. The gold and silver sector were killed, doesn’t mean all companies are bad. That’s like saying when apple fell 50% last summer that apple is a bad company and people shouldn’t invest.

      You are one of those people that make it crappy for everyone.

      If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

  10. Guy says:

    We are all at a disadvantage at the starting gate running days after the private placement gun goes off. It’s just another insider trading perk we suffer with !

  11. If I want to earn more money from my investments, I’d use R.F. Culbertson –

  12. ManAboutDallas says:

    The idea proposed really isn’t a new one, it’s been around for years in the form of Shareholder Rights Offerings, but the ability to avoid a lot of the Prospectus “red tape” is a GIANT step in the right direction. If an investor who ALREADY has “skin in the game” by ALREADY being a Shareholder is willing to shoo the moths off their wallet and pony up some more CA$H they should be able to do so, no questions asked.

    1. Powerful post. I am glad you are okay. Even half a world way those images burned their way into my mind and memory. I know where I was, with whom I was. And realised at that time it would change our world. It has.

    2. At times work culture can be so demoralizing; and sometimes the best armor comes in the form of a well conceived wardrobe. Your life is on a much bigger stage than the confines of your day gig. Most jobs rarely reflect our deepest aspirations or talents. Stay strong and keep your shit kicking boots handy!
