TSX Venture Exchange announced the TSX Venture 50(TM), the first ever ranking of Canada’s top emerging public companies. The TSX Venture 50 are the top 10 companies in each of five major industry sectors – Mining, Oil & Gas, Technology, Life Sciences and Diversified Industries – based on a ranking formula with equal weighting given to one-year revenue (last reported 12 months), return on investment, market cap growth and trading volume. All data was as of August 31, 2005.

The top companies in the five industry sectors were:

CV Technologies Inc. (CVQ) – Life Sciences
Laramide Resources Ltd. (LAM) – Mining
Capitol Energy Resources Ltd. (CPX) – Oil & Gas
Raymor Industries Inc. (RAR) – Diversified Industries
Icron Technologies Corporation (IT) – Technology

CV Technologies Inc. (CVQ) of Alberta also emerged as the top company overall.

50% of the 2005 TSX Venture 50 went public via TSX Venture’s unique Capital Pool Company® Program, and four of the 50 have graduated to Toronto Stock Exchange since the compilation of the ranking (August 31, 2005).
