LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Jun 26, 2017) – Freedom Leaf, Inc. The Marijuana Legalization Company (OTCQB: FRLF) announces that its application to uplist Freedom Leaf’s stock to the OTCQB Venture Market trading platform has been approved and is effective today.
“We are very proud that our uplisting to the OTC Quote Board has been approved,” said Clifford J. Perry, Freedom Leaf, Inc. President and CEO.
“This achievement is an integral part of our business plan and reflects our ongoing commitment to building a solid and profitable Company that delivers long term shareholder value. We believe that trading on the OTCQB will enhance our visibility in the marketplace, broaden and diversify our investor base, and increase the liquidity of our common stock.”
Freedom Leaf shares are also DTC electronic (DWAC/FAST/DRS) eligible, and can be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC.
