When the markets are hot, CPCs are all the rage. What is a CPC? What is so great about a CPC? How do you find or organize a CPC?
A “CPC”, or Capital Pool Company, is a shell public company organized in accordance with the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange for the purpose of finding and acquiring an active business. CPCs are a common vehicle sophisticated investors use to take successful or promising active businesses public. In effect, the investors create an asset, being the clean public company, which they then offer to another company for its going public vehicle. In theory, the investors increase the value of their shares by rolling the active business into their shell and the active business benefits from all the advantages of being a public company i.e. access to capital and liquidity
