TSX Symbol Changes

TSX Symbol Changes

Over the next few months, the Toronto Stock Exchange will be changing the stock symbols for a number of non-conventional voting structures. For more information:

SYMBOLOGY 101: New Symbol Extensions Explained

Changes to more than 150 symbols will be staggered between October 4 and December 13. These changes involve the addition of five new trading symbol extensions:

  • NV - Non-voting shares
    Shares which have no right to vote, or a right to vote only in certain limited circumstances. Using Canadian Tire as an example, CTR.A becomes CTR.NV to reflect the non-voting status of the shares.
     
  • MV - Multiple-voting shares
    Shares which have more votes than the issuer's standard voting shares. Using Teck Cominco as an example, TEK.A will become TEK.MV.A to indicate that these are multiple voting shares.
     
  • SV - Subordinate-voting shares
    Shares which carry a right to vote, where there is another class or classes of shares outstanding that carry a greater voting right on a per share basis. As an example, TEK.B becomes TEK.SV.B to indicate that these are subordinate to the multiple voting shares.
     
  • LV - Limited-voting shares
    Shares which have the right to vote only in certain limited circumstances. Using Brascan as an example, BNN.A will become BNN.LV.A to reflect the limited voting status of the shares.
     
  • RV - Restricted-voting shares
    Shares which carry a right to vote, subject to some restriction on the number or percentage of shares that may be voted by the owner. Using Microcell Telecommunications as an example, MT.A becomes MT.RV.A to reflect the restricted voting status' of the shares.

If you are tracking any of the affected issues in your Stocklist or Globe Portfolio, the symbol change will occur automatically on the specified date.
