About OTCQX

OTCQX offers a highly visible and efficient market tier for reputable companies trading over-the-counter. OTCQX closes the credibility gap by creating the only listing process on the OTC, but also offers companies a choice to be SEC reporting or meet OTCQX's alternative disclosure process, which is typically less expensive and onerous than full SEC reporting.
