Sept 18 (Reuters) - Canadian financial company TMX Group Ltd said on Sunday it had not been removed from a major Canadian index run by S&P Global Inc despite what a spokesman said was an erroneous press release by S&P unit Capital IQ Inc saying it had been removed.
TMX spokesman Shane Quinn told Reuters TMX had confirmed with S&P that it had not been removed from the S&P/TSX Composite Index.
“We wanted to make sure the marketplace had the correct information,” he said.
An S&P spokesman had no immediate response on Sunday night. (Reporting by Dan Freed in New York; Editing by Sandra Maler)
