Mint Applies for U.S. OTCQB Listing


November 1, 2018 (Source) — The Mint Corporation (TSX-V: MIT) (“Mint”) is pleased to announce that it has begun the process to list on the OTCQB Venture Market. The OTCQB Venture Market provides efficient access to U.S. investors, helping Canadian companies build shareholder value with a goal of enhancing liquidity and achieving fair valuation.

The OTCQB in the United States is similar to the TSX-V in Canada for early stage and developing international companies. To be eligible for the OTCQB, companies must be current in their financial reporting, pass a minimum bid price test and undergo an annual company verification and management certification process.

“Trading on OTCQB signals to the U.S. market Mint’s desire to offer a high level of transparency and convenience to U.S. investors while trading on a credible U.S. market tier,” said Vishy Karamadam, CEO of The Mint Corporation. The U.S. exposure afforded by OTCQB is also a logical step in the evolution of the Company, he noted.
