Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 11, 2019) – Permex Petroleum Corporation (CSE: OIL) (“Permex” or the “Company”) announced today that the Company has submitted its application to list on the OTCQB tier of OTCMarkets in the United States. The Company stated that they meet all of the requirements to be eligible for OTCQB. The OTCQB membership provides enhanced investor benefits, including more stringent reporting standards, increased analyst coverage and access to news services, as well as more comprehensive compliance requirements.
“This is another evolutionary step for the company as we seek to enhance our reach within the US markets. We have steadily increased revenues, strengthened our acquisitions, included diverse business growth and development strategies, and we felt like this move was important given all the assets of the company are situated in the United States. We believe that listing on the OTCQB will help to broaden our shareholder base, increase appeal to institutional investors, provide shareholders with better liquidity and, ultimately increase shareholder value, allowing Permex to rapidly accelerate our business strategy,” said Permex CEO Mehran Ehsan.”
The Company has continued to be focused on growing its current revenue streams while benefiting from higher oil prices in recent months. Additional acquisitions are in sight for the company to scale its operational footprint in Texas and New Mexico while increasing its horizontal drilling location potential in anticipation of a drilling program.
“It was about 11 months ago that we launched into the public markets outlining our plan to create a unique oil and gas company with assets in the Permian & Delaware Basin. When you look at how much we have accomplished and how well positioned we are in a variety of market segments, you can really see the possibilities and potential. It was our goal all along to be able to list in the United States and we are now in a position to accomplish that goal as well.”
