About OTCQX and International OTCQX

OTCQX and International OTCQX are new market tiers launched by Pink Sheets, LLC in March 2007 that aim to separate out companies worthy of investor consideration from the thousands of economically distressed and speculative companies trading over-the-counter (OTC). Similar to the Nomad system of the London Stock Exchange's Alternative Investment Market (AIM), OTCQX companies must nominate a Designated Advisor for Disclosure (for U.S. companies) or Principal American Liaison (for international companies) to list on OTCQX. This community of trusted advisors work closely with a company's management to increase investor confidence and close the credibility gap in the OTC market.
