VANCOUVER, Oct. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. ("Electra Meccanica" or the "Company") (OTCQB: ECCTF), manufacturer of the all-electric SOLO commuter car and all-electric Tofino sport coupe, is pleased to announce that the Company has filed an application to have its shares of common stock listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market.
"Elevating the listing of our common stock to the NASDAQ Capital Market will provide access to a larger pool of capital, which is an important step forward in our mission to enhance shareholder value while complementing the operational progress we are making. As the Electra Meccanica story improves, the NASDAQ Capital Market listing is expected to increase trading liquidity of our common stock, broaden our shareholder base and raise our profile in the investment community," said Jerry Kroll, Electra Meccanica's CEO and Chairman of the Board.
The Company's NASDAQ Capital Market listing application is subject to review and approval by NASDAQ's Listing Qualifications Department to ensure compliance with all NASDAQ Capital Market standards. Electra Meccanica does not know how long the NASDAQ review process will last, however, it is anticipated the process will take approximately two months or longer before completion. While the Company intends to satisfy all of NASDAQ's requirements for initial listing, no assurance can be given that this application will be approved. The Company's common stock will continue to trade on the OTCQB under its current symbol, ECCTF, during the NASDAQ review process.
