Vancouver, BC – April 17, 2017: Liberty Leaf Holdings Ltd. (CSE: LIB, OTCQB: LIBFF and FSE: HN3P) (the “Company” or “Liberty Leaf) today announced that, as part of its strategy to engage and expand the U.S. investor audience, Liberty Leaf has sought and obtained approval to be listed on the OTCQB Venture Market, operated by OTC Markets Group.
Effective April 17, 2017, the Company’s new OTCQB stock symbol is LIBFF. Liberty Leaf continues to trade on the CSE under its existing “LIB” symbol.
The New York City-based OTCQB Marketplace operates the world’s largest electronic quotation system. That system gives North American and international investors access to real-time quotations and trades in stocks that are not listed on any other US stock exchange.
“This is an important step for Liberty Leaf as listing on the OTCQB will give us much broader exposure to US investors,” said Will Rascan, President and CEO of Liberty Leaf. “We believe listing on the OTCQB will raise the visibility of the Company, broaden our shareholder base and enhance liquidity as we move forward with our goal to be a significant publicly traded company in the US legal cannabis industry.”
Mr. Rascan adds: “Listing on the OTCQB should also signal to existing shareholders that Liberty Leaf is aggressively pursuing opportunities in the fast-developing US legal cannabis industry.”
Liberty Leaf has already made significant inroads in the US. It recently negotiated a letter of intent to acquire 27.5% of GR8 Track Inc., a private California medical cannabis cultivator. California ratified the legalization of “adult use” recreational cannabis during last November’s election.
