  • None.
  • None.

The decision by A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. to delist from the TSX Venture Exchange is a strategic move that could streamline operations and reduce costs associated with maintaining a dual listing. By centralizing its trading platform to NASDAQ, A2Z aims to consolidate its investor base, which can lead to enhanced liquidity and potentially a more stable trading environment for its shares. This move may also signal to the market that the company is focusing on larger, international investors, as NASDAQ is a more globally recognized exchange.

However, the delisting could also mean that Canadian investors who prefer trading on a domestic exchange might be less inclined to invest in A2Z shares. Moreover, the company's assertion that the move will benefit long-term liquidity and shareholder value is speculative and remains to be proven. Investors should monitor the stock's liquidity and trading volume on the NASDAQ following the delisting to assess the impact of this change.

From a financial perspective, the delisting from the TSXV could result in cost savings for A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. due to the elimination of listing fees and the reduction of regulatory compliance costs associated with maintaining a listing on multiple exchanges. These savings could potentially be redirected towards the company's core operations or growth initiatives, potentially improving its financial health.

It is also important to consider the potential impact on the company's stock price. While the delisting is not expected to affect the NASDAQ listing, the reduction in accessibility for some investors could lead to a short-term decrease in demand for the stock. Investors should evaluate the company's future financial reports to discern whether the anticipated cost savings and operational efficiencies translate into improved financial performance.

Legally, the voluntary delisting from the TSXV must comply with the exchange's policies, which generally require a certain notice period and may involve specific procedures to protect the interests of shareholders. For A2Z, adherence to these procedures would mitigate legal risks and ensure a smooth transition. Shareholders should be aware that the delisting process involves regulatory oversight and is designed to prevent potential market manipulation or adverse effects on shareholders.

Additionally, the company's decision to maintain its NASDAQ listing ensures that it remains subject to the regulatory requirements of a major U.S. exchange, which includes stringent disclosure and corporate governance standards. This continued regulatory oversight can provide shareholders with a degree of confidence in the company's compliance and transparency practices post-delisting from TSXV.

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / February 20, 2024 / A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. ("A2Z" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:AZ)(TSXV:AZ)($AZ), a global leader in innovative technology solutions, today announced that it has applied and received approval for a voluntary delisting of its common shares from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). The delisting from the TSXV will not affect the Company's listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market (the "NASDAQ"). The common shares will continue to trade on the NASDAQ under the symbol "AZ".

The Company believes that the trading volume of its shares on the TSXV no longer justifies the expenses and administrative efforts required to maintain a dual listing. The Company also believes that delisting from the TSXV will create a central marketplace for its common shares on the NASDAQ, and ultimately benefit the long-term liquidity and shareholder value of the Company.

It is anticipated that, effective as at the close of trading on or about February 29, 2024, A2Z's common shares will no longer be listed and posted for trading on the TSXV.

Following delisting from the TSXV, A2Z's shareholders can trade their common shares through their brokers on NASDAQ. As most brokers in Canada, including many discount and online brokers, have the ability to buy and sell securities listed on NASDAQ, A2Z's NASDAQ listing will continue to provide shareholders with the same accessibility to trade the Company's common shares. Shareholders holding shares in Canadian brokerage accounts should contact their brokers to confirm how to trade A2Z's shares on the NASDAQ.
