Hill Street Announces DTC Eligibility
Toronto, ON - TheNewswire - March 22, 2023 - Hill Street Beverage Company Inc. (TSXV:HILL) (OTC:HSEEF) ("Hill Street” or the "Company"), a progressive bioscience implementation company that utilizes new technologies to provide innovative cannabis solutions and non-alcoholic beverage products, confirms that its OTCQB-listed common shares under the symbol “HSEEF” are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through the Depository Trust Company ("DTC") in the United States.
The DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation and manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through DTC are considered "DTC eligible." This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors and brokers, enabling the stock to be traded over a much wider selection of brokerage firms by coming into compliance with their requirements. Being DTC eligible is expected to greatly simplify the process of trading and transferring the Company's common shares on the OTCQB.
The OTCQB is a market for established companies, both from the U.S. and other countries, that meet high financial standards, and provide timely news and disclosure to investors.
"As a direct result of Hill Street’s DTC eligibility, the Company’s stock is now accessible to all US investors and institutions. DTC eligibility also allows trading of the Company’s stock in the capital markets to be strengthened. Hill Street has a significant and constantly expanding investor following out of the US and enhancing our exposure for investment is exciting", stated Matthew Jewell, CFO of Hill Street.
