OTCQX International: Attractive US Trading Platform for Non-US Blue Chip Companies

OTCQX International has emerged as the pre-eminent over-the-counter1 (OTC) securities marketplace for blue chip non-US companies trading in the United States. Many of the world's leading publicly traded companies are now quoted there, with over six dozen joining OTCQX International since the beginning of 2007. The reasons for this move to OTCQX International?s platform are two-fold: i) in 2007 the OTCQX began to be reorganised into separate tiers based on defined quantitative and disclosure standards, and ii) significant regulatory changes implemented by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act) during 2007 and 2008 made a move by non-US companies to the OTCQX platform much easier and substantially more attractive.
