Vancouver, British Columbia / Newsfile Corp. / July 17, 2017
Abattis Bioceuticals Corp. (OTCQB: ATTBF) (CSE: ATT) (the “Company” or “Abattis“) is pleased to announce that it has obtained Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) eligibility in the United States (“US”).
The DTC is a stock depository and facilitates electronic trading in the US. When shares are DTC eligible, trades are completed electronically in a more cost effective and timely method for settlement. Shares that are DTC eligible often increase trading volume. In addition, DTC eligibility addresses the issue that many US firms have that prohibit trading in shares that are not DTC eligible. As Abattis moves forward with its business plans, DTC eligibility will extend its reach to a broader audience of investors, setting the stage for exposure on an international scale.
“We have been working toward DTC eligibility for the past few months with the focus on being more accessible to US investors and financiers. We are pleased to continue to better service our US investor base, which represents a large portion of our shareholder support,” says Rene David, Chief Operating Officer of Abattis.
The Company has been working to grow its sales through its subsidiary, Vergence Visionary Bioceuticals Corp., dba Vergence Naturals™ and is ramping up its sales and client base in its subsidiary, Northern Vine Canada Inc., dba Northern Vine Labs™. Abattis is also in the late stages of its first formulation and eagerly awaits the delivery of its first two machines from Suzhou Raybot Material Tech Corp. (“Raybot”). In addition to this organic growth the Company is also working on several potential acquisitions to further fuel its growth.
“DTC eligibility will provide Abattis with increased visibility and convenience for US investors. We anticipate that our shareholders will benefit from increased liquidity, larger shareholder base and increased exposure,” said Abattis President and CEO, Robert Abenante. “As we work diligently to create growth in our company and strive to become a leading service provider in the cannabis industry, we aim to reach as many people as possible.”
