DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2014) - Paradigm Oil and Gas, Inc. (OTC Pink: PDGO) (PINKSHEETS: PDGO), a leading service provider to the oil and gas industry with expanding operations in oil and gas production, today announced receiving formal confirmation from The Depository Trust Corporation (TDTC) that deposit transaction restrictions (the "Chill") have been removed from Paradigm's common stock, effective immediately.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defines a "Chill" as a limitation of certain services available for a security on deposit at TDTC, which was created to improve efficiencies and reduce risk in the clearance and settlement of securities transactions. In official communication informing Paradigm of the regulatory achievement, a TDTC representative wrote, "Please be advised that The Depository Trust Company has determined to lift the Deposit Chill and has resumed accepting deposits of the Issue for depository and book-entry transfer services."
Vince Vellardita, Paradigm's CEO, stated, "I made a promise to shareholders that we would achieve full regulatory compliance. Today, we achieved that critical goal." The Company categorized the ruling as significant because it positions Paradigm Oil and Gas to attract a broader scope of investors, representing the potential for significantly enhanced share valuation. Vellardita added "The important accomplishments of the past few weeks, including the completion of auditing two years of financials, filing Form 10 with the SEC, maintaining our OTC Pink status, and now having the 'Chill' lifted, are the culmination of months of hard work. With shareholder confidence restored and sound business practices guiding the company, we are poised to take bold steps forward."
