Discovery Ventures Inc. to Apply to Be Quoted on OTC QX

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 7, 2014) - Discovery Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DVN) (the "Company" or "Discovery") is pleased to announce that it has initiated the process to have its common shares quoted on the OTC QX in the United States.

The Company has retained the financial consultant firm of Baxter Capital Advisors, Inc. to help coordinate this process. The Company currently trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the ticker symbol "DVN." The Company believes that having its shares quoted on the OTC QX would broaden the Company's market to include investors in the United States.

Reserved for international companies listed on a qualified stock exchange in their home country, the OTC QX International provides easy access to U.S. investors and the ability for a company to diversify its shareholder base. "We are very pleased to be working toward providing our U.S. investors with an alternative trading platform for our common shares and believe this is an important step toward increasing Discovery's visibility within the U.S. market," states Akash Patel, President of the Company.

About the OTC QX

The OCT QX is the top tier of the U.S. Over-the-Counter marketplace which gives non-U.S. companies access to U.S. investors, without the duplicative regulatory costs required of listing on a traditional U.S. exchange. The innovative OTC QX platform offers companies and their shareholders a level of marketplace services formerly available only on a U.S. exchange.

The OTC QX is fully electronic and gives investors access through all major online and full- service brokerage firms in the U.S., including Schwab, E*Trade, Scottrade, TD Ameritrade and Fidelity. Trades are settled and cleared in the U.S. similar to any NASDAQ or NYSE stock, and trade reports are disseminated through Yahoo, Bloomberg, Reuters and most other financial data providers.
