Ipsidy Upgraded to OTCQX® Best Market
LONG BEACH, N.Y., May 10, 2018 — Ipsidy Inc. (authid.ai) [OTCQX:IDTY], a provider of secure, biometric identification, identity management and electronic transaction processing services, will start to trade on the OTCQX Best Market effective today.
Ipsidy begins trading today on OTCQX under the symbol “IDTY.” Ipsidy qualified to upgrade to OTCQX from the OTCQB® Venture Market, both of which are operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc. U.S. investors can find current financial disclosure and Real-Time Level 2 quotes for the company on www.otcmarkets.com. as well as other popular financial websites.
OTCQX is designed for established, investor-focused U.S. and international companies that have met high financial standards, are current in their financial reporting and have been sponsored by a professional third-party advisor. The OTCQX market is considered by the SEC as an “established public market” for the purpose of determining the public market price when registering securities for resale in equity line financings with the SEC. Trading on OTCQX indicates that a company is committed to providing a transparent market for its investors and maintaining high financial and operating standards.
“We are delighted to be moving up to OTCQX,” said Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO of Ipsidy Inc. “As a company we are committed to providing a transparent market for our investors and maintaining high financial and operating standards. Many broker-dealers have restrictions around trading or recommending to investors stocks, which are traded on lower tier markets, because those markets are not considered an “established public market” by the SEC. Accordingly, this upgrade is a significant milestone for Ipsidy and we believe a step towards increasing the liquidity of our stock.”
