TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - EPM Mining Ventures Inc. ("EPM" or the "Company") announced today that it has obtained a new symbol (EPKMF) for trading on the OTCQX International. This new symbol is more closely aligned to the symbol used for trading of the Company's shares on the TSX Venture Exchange. (TSXV: EPK) (OTCQX: EPKMF) As a segment of the OTCQX marketplace, the OTCQX International is reserved for high-quality non-U.S. companies listed on a qualified stock exchange in their home country.
Lance D'Ambrosio, Chief Executive Officer of EPM, said; "We are very pleased to have obtained our new symbol. Now our TSX Venture Exchange symbol, EPK, and our OTCQX symbol, EPKMF are similar and easier to remember. This should reduce confusion for all investors and result in enhanced liquidity and a more orderly retail market."
The Company anticipates that trading will commence on the OTCQX on January 22, 2013 under the new symbol EPKMF. EPM will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under its existing symbol EPK. The previous OTCQX symbol for the Company, EPMMF, will remain active but now will be tied only to non-voting shares, which are convertible to voting shares on a one-to-one basis.
