Depository Trust Company (DTC) Restores Services for AppTech

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwired - January 25, 2017) - AppTech Corp. (OTC PINK: APCX) announces that the Depository Trust Company ("DTC") has restored all electronic clearance and settlement services for the Company's common stock. The Company's common shares were previously unable to be traded electronically due to a Global Lock imposed by the DTC on April 14, 2014.

The basis for the imposition of a Global Lock was related to a FINRA order issued on August 5, 2013 which stated that between, August 19, 2008 and September 20, 2010, FINRA member Oppenheimer & Company, Inc. sold a total of over one billion shares of twenty penny stocks, including AppTech common stock, without registration or an applicable exemption, in violation of Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933. As previously announced on May 5, 2014, the company was unaware of previous management's involvement in this matter but remained committed to working with legal counsel, the DTC, and the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") to restore DTC services for AppTech. https://www.apptechcorp.com/suspension-of-dtc-services-for-apptech-corp-2/
