VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Wildcat Exploration Ltd, ("the Company or Wildcat"), (TSX-V: WEL, OTCPINK: WCTXF) announces that the US Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") has cleared Wildcat's common share request for trading on the OTC Pink Sheets. Wildcat's common shares are eligible for quotation on the OTC Pink Markets (known as the "Pink Sheets"). The OTC Pink Sheet marketplace offers trading in a wide spectrum of equity securities in the United States.  In the US Wildcat is quoted as WCTXF with CUSIP No. 96809P501.

The Company also reports that it has applied to the Underwriting Department at the Depository Trust Company to become "DTC" full service eligible, which will allow for electronic trading.  DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation DTCC, and manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered "DTC eligible."  

The ability to have the Company's shares electronically transferred between brokerages in the United States is significantly more convenient and reduces the costs incurred in trading shares.

When shares are able to trade electronically, existing investors benefit from greater liquidity and execution speeds, while opening the door to new investors that may have been previously been restricted from the Company's shares.
