NEW YORK, May 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OTC Markets Group Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM), operator of regulated markets for trading 12,000 U.S. and international securities, today announced Heliostar Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: HSTR; OTCQX: HSTXF), a junior mining company, has qualified to trade on the OTCQX® Best Market. Heliostar Metals Ltd. upgraded to OTCQX from the Pink® market.
Heliostar Metals Ltd. begins trading today on OTCQX under the symbol “HSTXF.” U.S. investors can find current financial disclosure and Real-Time Level 2 quotes for the company on www.otcmarkets.com.
Upgrading to the OTCQX Market is an important step for companies seeking to provide transparent trading for their U.S. investors. For companies listed on a qualified international exchange, streamlined market standards enable them to utilize their home market reporting to make their information available in the U.S. To qualify for OTCQX, companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance and demonstrate compliance with applicable securities laws.
Heliostar CEO, Charles Funk commented, “Reinstatement on the OTCQX was a priority upon completing the acquisition of the Ana Paula Gold project. The scale of the transaction required a trading halt on our primary Canadian exchange resulting in a subsequent pause on the company’s OTCQX status until today. Heliostar shares resumed trading at an opportune time for our current and prospective American shareholders. We expect the first drill results from Ana Paula this week.”
Burns, Figa & Will, P.C. acted as the company’s OTCQX sponsor.
