Xigem Technologies Applies to Trade on OTCQB
July 5, 2021
TORONTO, July 5, 2021 – Xigem Technologies Corporation (CSE:XIGM) (FSE:2C1) (“Xigem” or the “Company”), a technology provider for the emerging remote economy, today announced that it has filed an application with the OTC Markets Group for its common shares to trade on the OTCQB® Venture Market (“OTCQB”).
The OTCQB is a leading market for early-stage and developing U.S. and international companies. Recognized as an established public market by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the OTCQB has helped companies build considerable shareholder value including enhanced liquidity and valuation. To be eligible, companies must be current in their reporting and undergo an annual verification and management certification process, in addition to a variety of other typical regulatory requirements.
“Trading on the OTCQB would be a meaningful step in enhancing shareholder value,” said Brian Kalish, co-founder and CEO of Xigem. “We anticipate that an OTCQB listing would lead to increased liquidity and visibility among U.S and global traders, at a time when the remote economy continues to rapidly emerge and thrive.”
OTCQB trading offers companies the advantages of being publicly traded in the U.S. with lower cost and complexity. Investors may benefit from efficient trading through their preferred broker or financial advisor, transparent pricing with real-time quotes, and trusted disclosure that is made broadly available to broker-dealers and market data providers.
Xigem’s application process is well underway, having commenced with its submission of Form 211 to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), a U.S. government-authorized not-for-profit organization. The Company has also submitted an application to OTC Markets Group, the operator of OTCQB, along with a background check of its Officers and Directors, and has paid its initial listing fee. The Company expects to pursue DTC eligibility for its common shares through the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) upon clearance of the Form 211. Xigem looks forward to working with these parties to complete the Company’s OTCQB application process during the third quarter of 2021.
Xigem also announced an extension to its previously announced agreement with Messina Consulting to provide European market awareness, media buying and public relations services. The extension covers two separate three-week periods in July and August 2021, for a fee of €25,000 per week.
