VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 4, 2020 / Viva Gold Corp. (TSXV:VAU)(OTCQB:VAUCF) (the "Company" or "Viva") is pleased to announce that VAUCF is approved by OTC Markets Group Inc. for trading on the OTCQB Venture Markets as of August 4, 2020.
Viva's upgraded listing to the OTCQB is likely to provide greater liquidity and a more seamless trading experience for its U.S. shareholders. With higher reporting requirements and greater transparency required with the OTCQB listing, the upgrade also provides exemptions from U.S. state securities laws or "blue sky" exemptions which may help to further increase liquidity and expand investment advisors' ability to research and recommend investment in Viva Gold.
James Hesketh, CEO commented, "We anticipate that the upgrade to OTCQB will increase Viva's visibility with U.S. investors and help broaden our retail and institutional shareholder base by facilitating easier access for U.S. investors to acquire shares. With our U.S. electronic DTC eligibility already in the place, the upgrade to OTCQB rounds out our U.S. listing."
The OTCQB Venture Market is the premiere marketplace for early stage and developing U.S. and international companies. Participating companies must be current in their reporting and undergo an annual verification and management certification process.
