Snipp Interactive Inc. to Submit Documents for Registration of Shares in the United States.

BETHESDA, MARYLAND--(Marketwired - Dec. 18, 2013) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN.

Snipp Interactive Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SPN) has retained A.B. Korelin & Associates Inc. of Blaine, Wash., to assist the company in its preparation and submission of the company's Form 20-F registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Filing of the Form 20-F allows for the company to remain compliant with US Securities law as a majority of its business is based in the US and a large percentage of its shareholders are US Citizens. The filing is also a necessary first step in the company's strategy to expose U.S. stockbrokers, institutions and investors to the company. Once the Form 20-F becomes effective with the SEC, Snipp Interactive Inc. becomes a fully reporting issuer in the United States allowing the company to raise capital from US Investors and Institutions to pursue its growth strategy as well as consider the advantages of listing on one of the U.S. exchanges.

Atul Sabharwal, company CEO said: "Filing of the Form 20-F will require the company to file registration statements, periodic reports and other forms through EDGAR. When registered, Snipp Interactive Inc. will provide analysts, brokers and institutions in the U.S. the confidence that the company is registered with the SEC and will assist them in discussing the company with American residents. Registration will also allow anyone access to SEC-registered information on the company by way of the Internet."
