MONTREAL, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Solo International, Inc. (OTC: SLIO)("Solo International" or "the Company"), an exploration and development mining company with a focus on deposits of rare earth metals and rare earth elements has received notification from its transfer agent that the Company is now DTC eligible.
DTCC is a member of the U.S. Federal Reserve System. It is a limited trust company under New York State Banking law and a registered clearing agency with the SEC. The purpose of DTCC is to reduce costs associated with securities processing by financial intermediaries serving the public. They accomplish this by retaining custody of securities and converting them to electronic files. The depository also provides the services necessary for the maintenance of the securities it has in custody. If an issuer is not DTC eligible then its shares cannot be transferred between brokerage accounts electronically, which basically means its shares will not be traded easily. Higher Exchanges such as NYSE and AMEX require DTC eligibility. Once DTC approves the application they will hold all of the issuer's free-trading (street name) shares on deposit. These shares will become the company's "float".
The Company has confirmed it is now DTC eligible which will make the trading of the Company shares electronically transferable between brokerage firms.
The Company's consulting geologist is in the final process of completing the NI 43-101 report that has been commissioned by the Company. A property visit was undertaken on April 18, 2013 in order to gather data to finalize the report and the Company expects to post a copy of the NI43-101 on its website no later than May 31, 2013.
