Company expects transparent reporting standards, annual verifications, and other quality measures will expand its investor base and increase liquidity.
DOVER, DE / ACCESSWIRE / July 12, 2022 / Hero Technologies (OTCQB:HENC) Twitter: @heroicmindtech, a cannabis company focused on a "seed-to-sale" vertical integration strategy, today announced that the OTC Markets Group has upgraded the company's common stock to the OTCQB marketplace. As the mid-tier OTC equity market in the U.S., OTCQB is less speculative than Pink Sheets for early-stage developing companies. To qualify for an OTCQB listing, a company must adhere to strict reporting standards, undergo yearly verifications and certifications, and meet a $0.01 bid test. OTCQB-listed companies must also have a public float representing more than 10% of the total shares outstanding, with at least 50 beneficial shareholders, and with each shareholder owning at least 100 shares.
The OTCQB marketplace operates through OTC Link, an inter-dealer quotation and trading system registered as a broker-dealer and alternative trading system with the Securities and Exchange Commission. OTCQB-listed companies report to a U.S. regulator, following high transparency standards.
"Having our common stock upgraded to the OTCQB marketplace is an important step in the growth and maturity of our company," said Hero Technologies' CEO, Gina Serkasevich. "We are committed to serving our shareholders and investors with transparent communication and timely, accurate disclosure of material information. By adopting the higher regulatory standards of the OTCQB market, we believe that Hero Technologies will become a more attractive investment option to many more investors, enhancing our company's visibility and liquidity."
OTCQB rules about public availability of current information reflect the OTC Markets Group's core principal of transparent disclosure. An OTCQB-listed company is expected to release quickly and publicly any information likely to materially affect the market for its securities. Company management also has the responsibility to dispel misinformation that results in unusual market activity. In addition, an OTCQB company must ensure that any marketing or promotion of its stock reflects accurate information, without misleading or speculative "hype," and that it clearly discloses its relationships with marketers and promoters.
"We are happy to continue following the accuracy and transparency rules required by our OTCQB listing," added Serkasevich. "Our commitment to accuracy and transparency is especially important as we disseminate information through email, Twitter, InvestorsHub, Discord, Telegram, and other channels in an effort to boost public awareness of our market and investment opportunities."
