The OTCQB is recognized by the Securities and Exchange Commission as an established public market providing public information for analysis and value of securities. As a verified market with efficient access for U.S. investors, OTCQB helps companies build shareholder value with a goal of enhancing liquidity and achieving a fair valuation. Through trading on the OTCQB, companies can engage in a far greater network of U.S. investor data distributors and media partners, ensuring U.S. investors have access to the same high-quality information that is available to investors in Canada, but through U.S. platforms and portals used to conduct research. U.S. investors can find Real-Time Level 2 quotes for the Company on www.otcmarkets.com. The Company's shares will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "FMC", and the Company's public disclosure continues to be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
The Company also wishes to announce that its shares are DTC eligible. The Depository Trust Company (DTC) is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation DTCC and manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. 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. Being DTC eligible is expected to greatly simplify the process of trading and exchange of the Company's common stock on the OTCQB Venture marketplace in the United States.
