Quebec’s leading manufacturer of “intelligent” foot and specialty orthotics ranks 8th in the Technology and Life Science sector in Canada.
This ranking is set among the 2,258 companies listed on TSX Venture Exchange as of December 31. It gathers a group of strong performing companies in five major industry sectors – including Technology and Life Science – and was determined based on equal weighting of the following measures: market capitalization growth, share price appreciation, trading volume and analyst coverage. 2013 TSX Venture 50 companies have an impressive track record. On average, these companies have delivered a return of 129% in 2012. The shares of these companies also enjoy a highly liquid market with a total of 2.9 billion shares trading over the course of 2012.
“We are proud to be part of this select group of Canadian businesses. This recognition clearly reflects the efforts deployed by our entire team in 2012, as well as the company’s performance during this period of accelerated growth,” stated Ergoresearch president and CEO, Sylvain Boucher. “With the acquisition of Laboratoire Langelier in January 2013 and the OdrA launch, a revolutionary treatment that provides relief from the pain and suffering associated with knee osteoarthritis, we are maintaining our stride and are confident we will double our revenues over the course of the next 12 months.”
“TSX Venture Exchange operates a platform that provides emerging companies with the opportunity to access the capital they need to meet their growth objectives,” said John McCoach, President, TSX Venture Exchange. “We are pleased to present the latest group of companies that have excelled in their sectors.”
