Breaking News: WeedMD Secures DTC Eligibility and Graduates to OTCQX® Best Market

WeedMD Inc. (OTCQX: WDDMF) (TSX-V: WMD), a federally-licensed producer and distributor of medical-grade cannabis, is pleased to announce it has secured its Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) eligibility for WeedMD’s publicly traded securities. The Company will also begin trading on the OTCQX® Best Market under the ticker symbol “WDDMF” in the United States. U.S. investors can now find current financial disclosure and real-time level 2 quotes for WeedMD on www.otcmarkets.com.

“Having WeedMD become both DTC eligible and traded on the OTCQX® Best Market provides the Company with more visibility and transparency in the U.S. and greater liquidity for our current and future shareholders,” said Keith Merker, CEO of WeedMD. “We are excited to be expanding our U.S. investment community through this well-respected platform.”

DTC Eligibility

The DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation and manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded securities. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered “DTC eligible”, allowing for cost-effective clearing and guaranteed settlement, simplifying and accelerating the receipt of stock and cash for investors and brokers. Securities that are not DTC eligible are often not accepted for trading at certain brokerages due to the amount of paperwork and human resources required to execute and settle trades. As such, non-DTC eligible securities are typically more difficult for a significant percentage of investors to access than those that are DTC eligible. Further, companies that are approved for DTC electronic transfers typically experience higher trading volumes of their securities given the additional accessibility and availability of shares for trading.
