Mentor joins more than twenty companies during 2018 that have upgraded to OTCQX from the OTCQB® Venture Market, according to OTC Markets Group, Inc. U.S. investors can find current financial disclosure and Real-Time Level 2 quotes for the company on www.otcmarkets.com as well as other popular financial websites.
OTCQX is designed for established, investor-focused U.S. and international companies that have met high financial standards, are current in their financial reporting and have been sponsored by a professional third-party advisor. The OTCQX market is considered by the SEC as an "established public market" for the purpose of determining the public market price when registering securities for resale in equity line financings with the SEC.
"We are delighted to be moving up to OTCQX," said Chet Billingsley, Chairman and CEO of Mentor Capital, Inc. "When we shifted to the medical marijuana market in 2013, we committed to bring professionalism and integrity to the cannabis sector like we had encountered both in Silicon Valley and while working in cancer-related biotech outside of San Diego, which we feel is signaled by this move to OTC Market’s top tier. Those high standards also link to a tangible investor advantage. Accordingly, this upgrade is a significant milestone for Mentor Capital, and we believe a step towards increasing the liquidity of our stock."
About Mentor Capital: The company seeks to come alongside and assist private medical marijuana and cannabis companies and their founders in meeting their liquidity and financial objectives, to add protection for investors and to help incubate larger private cannabis companies.
