ParcelPal Technology Inc. is pleased to announce that effective at the opening of the market yesterday October 5, the Company’s common shares are eligible for primary trading on the OTCQB Venture Marketplace under the symbol “PTNYF” following the approval by the OTC of our primary listing application (“Listing Application”). This is an important distinction and upgrade from the secondary Pink® market the Company was previously listed on. Namely, this primary listing on the OTCQB allows us to offer and sell securities for the first time directly to investors, whereas prior to this, only those securities traded by investor to investor or broker to broker (secondary trading) were permitted.
Simultaneous with this listing, we will have obtained automatic effectiveness of our Form 20-F registration statement (“Registration Statement”), which we initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in August 2020. While our Registration Statement is now effective, it remains under customary review by the SEC, and we hope to have addressed all of the SEC’s queries to their satisfaction in the near term.
The Registration Statement and Listing Application will allow ParcelPal to pursue a dual listing of its common shares on the OTCQB to complement its current listing on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”).
CEO Rich Wheeless commented, “Listing on the OTCQB is a significant milestone for ParcelPal. While we will continue to trade on the CSE, our OTCQB listing will provide greater exposure to institutional investors and a broader shareholder base while providing our current and future shareholders, particularly those residing in the United States, with easier trading and access to ParcelPal’s shares. Additionally, we are committed to upholding best corporate governance practices and financial reporting as we continue to accelerate our strategic plan to further grow our market share and continue to penetrate new markets, including in the United States. Upgrading to the OTCQB Market from the Pink market, and complying with the stringent disclosure and filing requirements of the SEC, demonstrates our commitment to transparency and professionalism, and is an important step towards improving liquidity in our stock as we continue to drive shareholder value.”
The OTCQB is recognized by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission as an “established public market” and is a leading market for U.S. and international companies in the entrepreneurial and development stage. To be approved for listing, companies must be current in their financial reporting, pass a minimum bid price test, and undergo an annual company verification and management certification process.
