Brightlane Corp. Announces Up-listing to OTCQB

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - January 14, 2016) - Brightlane Corp. (OTCQB: BTLN), a lease-to-own residential real estate provider, today announced that the Company's common stock has been up-listed and approved for trading on the OTCQB Venture Marketplace. The Company also reiterated its strategy to create greater opportunity for its shareholders and attract new retail and institutional investors by providing transparency via this up-listing.

"We are extremely excited to announce our up-list to the OTCQB Venture Marketplace," stated Steve Helm, CEO of Brightlane Corp. "Brightlane is committed to the high level of financial and corporate disclosure that is required for this listing category and it further demonstrates significant improvement in how we are categorized in the public market and directly relates to a platform that requires full transparency," Mr. Helm added. "This move represents our continued commitment to our shareholders, and we believe that trading on the OTCQB will enhance trading liquidity, broaden our shareholder base and continue to increase market adoption of our business model, thereby enhancing shareholder value."

The OTCQB is considered by the SEC as an "established public market" for the purpose of determining the public market price when registering securities for resale with the SEC. The OTC Pink is not considered as such and most broker dealers will not trade or recommend OTC Pink stocks. Because the OTCQB dramatically increases transparency, reporting standards, management certification and compliance requirements, the majority of broker dealers trade stocks on the OTCQB. Historically this has resulted in greater liquidity and awareness for companies that reach the OTCQB tier.

"We have worked diligently towards this goal, and it exemplifies our commitment to building a great company," Mr. Helm stated. "These milestones open the doors to institutional investors and market makers who were not previously able to buy and sell shares of our company. Meeting the increased compliance and information requirements of OTCQB provides our investors greater confidence in the information we disclose and ensures our commitment to transparency and accountability."

"As we focus on building a business that delivers long term shareholder value, we believe this up-listing will enhance investor accessibility and serve as a stepping stone to meeting the listing requirements for admission to the NASDAQ Stock Exchange in the future," states Mr. Helm.
