Apotheca Biosciences (PCFP) Plans Uplisting to OTCQB

November 12, 2018

SAINT PETERSBURG, FL, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Apotheca Biosciences (OTC PINK: PCFP), a developer of cutting-edge medical products, nutraceuticals, drug formulations and cannabis delivery technologies for the healthcare and consumer care industry is pleased to announce the Company’s plans to uplist to the OTCQB market within the next few weeks. The application process will not guarantee acceptance of Company’s application by OTCMARKETS from the PINKS to OTCQB.

The Company believes that the move to the OTCQB will provide enhanced investor benefits including higher reporting standards, greater access to analyst coverage and news services, and more comprehensive compliance requirements. The OTCQB is considered by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as an “established public market” for determining the public market price when registering securities for resale with the SEC. The OTC Pink is not considered as such and most broker dealers will not trade or recommend OTC Pink stocks. Because the OTCQB dramatically increases transparency, reporting standards, management certification and compliance requirements, most broker dealers trade stocks on the OTCQB. Historically this has resulted in greater liquidity and awareness for companies that reach the OTCQB tier.

Key elements and benefits of uplisting to the OTCQB include:

-- Companies must remain current and compliant in their reporting to the SEC -- Minimum bid price test of $0.01 removes companies that are most likely to be the subject of dilutive stock fraud schemes and promotion -- Improved investor confidence through verified information, confirming that the Company Profile displayed on www.otcmarkets.com is current and complete -- Annual management certification process to verify officers, directors, controlling shareholders, and shares outstanding -- Greater information availability for investors through the OTC Disclosure & News Service -- Transparent prices for investors through full-depth of book with Real Time Level 2 quotes

“We anticipate that trading on the OTCQB will raise our visibility within the investment community and will help to broaden our shareholder base,” stated John Verghese, CTO & Director of Apotheca. “Uplisting to the OTCQB will be a significant milestone for the company (if our application is accepted by the OTCMARKETS) as it provides shareholders and potential investors with greater transparency and liquidity, and exposes Apotheca to institutional investors which do not invest in Pink Sheet companies.”
