Accessing Capital in North America: An introduction to OTC Markets

Date: 20 Feb 2017

Benefits of an exchange listing are realized on OTCQX while keeping reporting and costs at a minimum:

• QX is proven to significantly grow US shareholder base for “Foreign” issuers
• Reach more investors and eliminate research barriers (more visible to US investors with every announcement / financial disclosure)
• Enhance your LSE liquidity/volume/valuation – you open the door for broader US investor community to trade your ordinary stock
• No change to your share structure or reporting requirements (no SEC filing, Sarbanes Oxley, ADR requirements)
• Most US investors are unable or unwilling to trade “Foreign” stocks without first meeting QX criteria (risk controls).
• Enhance cross-border trading experience for brokers and investors by supporting broker and sell-side compliance
• Minimize risk by trading on OTCQX to gauge and build the appetite of US without regulatory burden and cost
