VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 18, 2021 / Empress Royalty Corp. ('Empress' or the 'Company')(TSXV:EMPR)(OTCQB:EMPYF) is pleased to announce that its common shares will commence trading at the open on February 19, 2021 on the OTCQB Venture Market ('OTCQB') in the United States. Empress will trade under the symbol 'EMPYF' in addition to its primary listing on the TSX Venture Exchange under its existing trading symbol 'EMPR'.
'We are excited to commence trading on the OTCQB Venture Market,' stated Alexandra Woodyer Sherron, CEO and President of Empress. 'Our listing on the OTCQB completes one of our core strategies to expand global awareness of Empress and provides us with exposure to a broader investor community, including United States investors. This milestone is an important component of our investor relations strategy to increase Empress' profile and develop further understanding of our business both within the global financial community and amongst potential mining company partners.'
The OTCQB Venture Market is for entrepreneurial and development stage United States and international companies. To be eligible, companies must be current in their financial reporting, pass a minimum bid price test and undergo an annual company verification and management certification process. The OTCQB Venture Market quality standards provide a strong baseline of transparency, as well as the technology and regulation to improve the information and trading experience for investors.
In addition, the Company is currently preparing to submit an application to the Depository Trust Company (the 'DTC') to have the Company's common shares eligible for delivery and depository services with the DTC to facilitate electronic settlement of transfers of its common shares in the United States. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered 'DTC eligible'. This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors and greatly reduces transactional costs for participating stock brokerages.
