NEW YORK, Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- OTC Markets Group Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM), operator of financial markets for 10,000 U.S. and global securities, congratulates True Leaf Medicine International Ltd. (CSE: MJ) (FSE: TLA) (OTCQB: TRLFF), the first Canadian-listed company, to conduct a successful Regulation A+ offering on its OTCQB Venture market.
The company's common stock began trading on the OTCQB market on July 20, 2017. U.S. investors can find current financial disclosure and Real-Time Level 1 quotes for the Company on www.otcmarkets.com.
"We congratulate True Leaf on a successful Reg A+ offering and the expansion of its unique profile to a broader pool of American investors," said Jason Paltrowitz, Executive Vice President of Corporate Services at OTC Markets Group. "True Leaf's $14 million (CAD) Reg A+ offering and private placement demonstrate the quality and effectiveness of both our premium OTCQX and OTCQB Venture markets in facilitating an effective capital raise. This presents tremendous benefits for small-cap, entrepreneurial and emerging sector companies seeking to raise capital--tailoring the needs of being a public company, while providing a cost-effective, less burdensome alternative to a national exchange listing."
"Access to US investors at an attractive cost through Reg A+ is a key advantage for Canadian reporting issuers," said Richard Carleton, CEO of the Canadian Securities Exchange where True Leaf is listed in Canada. "The True Leaf Reg A+ financing should serve as an important model for their peers."
The OTCQB Venture Market is designed for early-stage and developing U.S. and international companies.
