Eos Petro Announces Correction of Inappropriate Trading Symbol Addition

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2014) - Eos Petro, Inc. ("Eos") today announced that an "E" symbol that was attached to the end of Eos' company trading symbol, (OTCBB: EOPT), today at market open, was inappropriately added and will be removed. Eos is not delinquent, and its trading symbol EOPT is not in danger of being delisted. After conversations between Eos and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA"), a FINRA representative stated that the "E" will be removed from Eos' trading symbol by the next market open.

As explained on the OTCBB website: "A fifth character of 'E' in a security's trading symbol is used to denote securities that FINRA believes are delinquent in their required filings." See, Listing Requirements, In conversations between Eos' counsel and FINRA on November 14, FINRA initially stated that the "E" had been added because Eos failed to timely file a Form 12b-25 for its Form 10-Q filing for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. However, Eos did timely file a Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 12, 2014, and therefore advised FINRA that the "E" had been inappropriately added to Eos' trading symbol.

After Eos' counsel provided evidence to FINRA of Eos' compliance, a FINRA representative informed Eos and its counsel that at the close of the market today, 4:30 EST, the OTCBB will publish a list stating that the "E" will be removed from Eos' trading symbol, and Eos' trading symbol will appear as normal by the next market open.
