GIG HARBOR, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LKA International, Inc. (OTCQB:LKAI) advises investors that on or about February 23rd LKA, along with several hundred other companies previously quoted on FINRA's OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB), began being quoted solely on OTC Market Group's OTC Link™. This change was a result of broker-dealers moving away from the traditional Bulletin Board system, which proved to be more time- and cost-intensive, to the superior real-time electronic interdealer quotation system found with OTC Link™. According to OTC Market Group, over 95% of broker-dealer OTC priced quotes are now on the OTC Link™ platform compared to less than 5% on FINRA's OTC Bulletin Board.
Some popular quotation websites such as Yahoo Finance no longer carry current LKAI quotes and news due to this change. The Company has and continues to be in compliance with its regulatory reporting requirements. A current quotation of the Company's stock can be found at: http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/LKAI/quote
