The OTCQX Market is designed for established, investor-focused U.S. and international companies. To qualify for OTCQX, companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance, and demonstrate compliance with applicable securities laws. Graduating to the OTCQX Market from the OTCQB Market marks an important milestone for companies, enabling them to demonstrate their qualifications and build visibility among U.S. investors.
“We’re pleased to now be trading on the OTCQX; after many years of marketing in North America , we believe now is a great time to increase our exposure to one of the largest pools of capital in the world. Given the recent focus on the rise of Tesla and the electric vehicle revolution, we see North America becoming an important investor market for Blackstone’s future green nickel battery opportunities at the Ta Khoa Nickel-Cu-PGE Project,” said Scott Williamson , Managing Director of Blackstone Minerals.
