Roadmap to OTCQX Dual Listing: Top Tier Listing/No SEC Reporting Requirements

We are now going to build through a series of blog posts a Roadmap to Dual Listing on the OTCQX International Market using our firm as your PAL sponsor in the process.

Let’s begin.

Step One:  List on a qualified foreign exchange.

As noted by OTC Markets:  OTCQX International Market is reserved for global companies listed on a qualified stock exchange in their home country,

OTCQX International provides a U.S. marketplace for a company’s investors and a platform to efficiently expand their U.S. shareholder base. This requirement of listing on a qualified foreign exchange ensures that only those companies which have already complied with a qualified foreign stock exchange’s reporting are eligible.

YOUR JOB:  You need to determine if the foreign market on which your stock is already listed is qualified.  Set forth below are the qualified primary markets for countries we deal with:
