Pampa Metals Corp. (“Pampa Metals” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has qualified for trading on the OTCQB® (“OTCQB”), operated by OTC Markets Group, under its existing ticker symbol “PMMCF”. The Company is also pleased to report that it is now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) in the United States.
The OTCQB market is for early-stage and developing U.S. and global companies that are current in their reporting and undergo an annual verification and management certification process. In addition to trading in the United States on the OTCQB, the Company’s common shares will continue to trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) under the symbol “PM” and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol “FIRA”. DTC is a subsidiary of The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, based in the United States, that manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through 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 brokers, enabling the stock to be traded over a much wider selection of brokerage firms.
Julian Bavin, CEO of Pampa Metals stated: “We are excited about trading on the OTCQB market, and it is an important step forward for us as we continue our efforts to increase awareness, visibility and liquidity for the Company. We believe this will provide an opportunity to expand our current U.S. shareholder base and a better trading platform for these investors in general.” U.S. investors can find current financial disclosure and Real-Time Level 2 quotes for the Company on www.otcmarkets.com.
