January 6, 2014 - Vancouver, British Columbia - Terra Nova Energy Ltd. (TSX-V - TGC) is pleased to announce that its common shares have been granted eligibility status by the Depository Trust Company (DTC), subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC).
DTC is the world's largest post-trade financial services company. It provides electronic clearance, settlement, and information services for the vast majority of the equities and other securities in the United States. Trading of securities through DTC allows for cost-effective clearing and guaranteed settlement. Securities that are not DTC-eligible are often not accepted for trading at many brokerage firms due to the amount of paperwork and manpower required to execute and settle trades, thus making it more difficult for a significant percentage of investors to easily access those shares.
"We are pleased to have Terra Nova's shares granted eligibility status by DTC," stated Nico Civelli, VP Finance of Terra Nova. "DTC-eligibility facilitates brokerage firms to trade our stock for their clients. Acquiring DTC eligibility status commonly improves overall share liquidity and share attractiveness in the US OTC Markets."
