Built on a robust electronic quotation and trading platform, the OTCQX trading platform has emerged as the world's leading premier cross-listing venture for international issuers that wish to benefit from U.S. trading and investor demand without diluting their current shareholder base. The Company's shares may still be purchased and sold through all normal trading channels.
"AgriMarine believes that joining the OTCQX is a cost effective method to facilitate a U.S. presence", stated Richard Buchanan, President and CEO of AgriMarine. "With the Company now trading on the OTCQX, TSX Venture Exchange and Frankfurt Exchange, we are confident that we have the platforms required to broaden our shareholder base, enhance liquidity and increase international awareness of our Company as we advance our projects in China and Canada."
The OTCQX marketplace is the premier tier of the U.S. OTC market. Investor-focused companies use the quality-controlled OTCQX platform to offer investors transparent trading, superior information, and easy access through their regulated U.S. broker-dealers. The innovative OTCQX platform offers companies and their shareholders a level of marketplace services formerly available only on a U.S. stock exchange.
