A New Way To Get Your Public Company Exposure To The U.S. Market

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2010) -

The Canadian Investor Relations Institute (CIRI) is pleased to be hosting a lunch on the benefits of cross-border listing, without the expense and hassle of SEC regulations and reporting. 

- It's called the OTCQX;

- It's a highly visible, regulated trading platform of more than 132 member companies;

- It's grown to a total market capitalization of around $750 Billion; and

- It's gaining momentum at incredible speed.

"The OTCQX has earned a strong reputation for providing U.S. investors with improved liquidity, transparency, superior information and easy access through their U.S. regulated broker-dealers" said Rhonda Bennetto, President of CIRI Alberta. "Also, the visibility provided by Standard & Poor's Market Access Program, and the advisory services offered by Moody's represents a strong opportunity for public Canadian companies to develop additional investor interest in the US in a low-cost, efficient manner."

This event is brought to you by the Canadian Investor Relations Institute (Alberta Chapter) and co-sponsored by Standard & Poors Investor Relations Services and Moodys Capital Solutions. Hear from Darrell Stone at S&P and Peter Baxter from Moody's as they explain (and give you access to) a whole new market of investors at a reasonable price through the OTCQX in the U.S.
