FUQING CITY, China, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Clean Energy Inc. (OTC QB: CCGY) ("China Clean Energy" or the "Company"), a producer of biodiesel fuel and environmentally-friendly specialty-chemical products made from renewable resources in The People's Republic of China ("PRC"), announced today that the Company began trading on the OTCQB, a marketplace developed by the OTC Markets Group, as of February 23, 2011 under the ticker symbol CCGY.
The OTC Markets Group is a leader in using technology to bring positive changes to the OTC market, and many broker-dealers are now exclusively using its platform to quote OTC securities. In the past week certain market makers have stopped issuing quotes on the OTC Bulletin Board in favor of the OTCQB. As a result of the lack of quotation activity on the OTCBB, China Clean Energy is now quoted on the OTCQB. The OTCQB is a market tier for U.S. listed companies that are in compliance with their SEC reporting obligations.
The Company wishes to confirm that China Clean Energy remains current with the Securities and Exchange Commission reporting requirements and that its fillings can be found at http://www.sec.gov.
Certain third-party stock data providers are in the process of updating their platforms to correctly display the trading activity of companies that have transitioned from OTCBB to OTCQB.
