March 3, 2021 – Vancouver - Sun Peak Metals Corp (the “Company” or “Sun Peak”, TSXV: PEAK) is pleased to announce that its common shares will commence trading at the open on March 4, 2021 on the OTCQB Venture Market (“OTCQB”) in the United States. Sun Peak will trade under the symbol "SUNPF” in addition to its primary listing on the TSX Venture Exchange under its existing trading symbol “PEAK”.
“We are pleased to commence trading on the OTCQB Venture Market as it is an important component of our efforts to increase Sun Peak’s profile and exposure to a broader audience, including the United States investment community” stated Greg Davis, President, CEO and Director of Sun Peak.
The OTCQB Venture Market is for entrepreneurial and development stage United States and international companies. To be eligible, companies must be current in their financial reporting, pass a minimum bid price test and undergo an annual company verification and management certification process. The OTCQB Venture Market quality standards provide a strong baseline of transparency, as well as the technology and regulation to improve the information and trading experience for investors.
In addition, the Company is currently preparing to submit an application to the Depository Trust Company (the “DTC”) to have the Company’s common shares eligible for delivery and depository services with the DTC to facilitate electronic settlement of transfers of its common shares in the United States. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered “DTC eligible”. This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors and greatly reduces transactional costs for participating stock brokerages. Investors can find the current Canadian financial disclosure of the Company on its profile on www.sedar.com.
