VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Legible Inc. (CSE: READ) (FSE: D0T) (OTCQB: LEBGF) ("Legible” or the “Company”) is delighted to announce that it has qualified to trade on the OTCQB Venture Market (“OTCQB”). Legible’s common shares will begin trading on the OTCQB effective today under the ticker symbol LEBGF.

Furthermore, as announced on January 10, 2023, Legible’s shares are DTC eligible for electronic clearing and settlement with the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) for trading in the U.S.
“We are delighted to begin trading on the OTCQB. This an important milestone for Legible, which will help increase our visibility and accessibility to a broader audience of U.S. investors and brokers and build awareness with industry analysts as we advance our unique eReading and audiobook offerings,” said Kaleeg Hainsworth, Legible’s CEO. “We would like to thank the team at B. Riley Securities, headed by Ms. Becky Popoff, who provided us with excellent advisory services and acted as our OTCQB Sponsor.”
The OTCQB is a U.S.-based transparent trading platform operated by the OTC Markets Group in New York and is the premier marketplace for entrepreneurial and development stage U.S. and international companies committed to providing a high-quality trading and information experience for U.S. investors. To be eligible, companies must be up to date in their SEDAR financial reporting, pass a minimum bid price test, and undergo an annual company verification and management certification process.
As a verified market with efficient access to U.S. investors, the OTCQB helps Canadian companies build shareholder value to improve liquidity and achieve fair valuation. As a result, more Canadian companies are traded on OTC Markets than the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq combined. The key benefits of trading on the OTCQB include efficient market standards, transparency, visibility, and robust technology.
Hainsworth added, “Legible’s management team is exploring ways to establish new partnerships in the US, similar to our large-scale regional transit authority partnership with Go Transit in Ontario's Greater Toronto Area, that will make eReading more widely accessible to U.S. customers and investors, and enhance awareness for the Legible brand.”
