“Through this listing we intend to provide a more visible and liquid market for our common shares in the United States, building on our current disclosure and profile provided by our TSX Venture listing,” said Tyler Rice, president and chief executive officer. “We are looking forward to increasing the visibility of Margaux and providing current and prospective Margaux shareholders based in the U.S. the opportunity to learn more about the company’s news and developments, and ultimately broadening our shareholder base.”
Ahead of the OTCQB listing, Margaux has partaken in multiple marketing initiatives in the U.S., starting with road shows in Atlanta and New York, followed by equity and investment conferences in New Orleans, San Francisco and Palm Beach.
Margaux was assisted in its listing on the OTCQB by B. Riley & Co. LLC, which acted as the principal American liaison sponsor while providing Margaux with capital markets advisory services and guidance through the listing process. B. Riley is a full-service investment bank and a wholly owned subsidiary of B. Riley Financial Inc., a publicly traded, diversified financial services company.
