CoTec Holdings Corp. Announces DTC Eligibility For Electronic Settlement Of Trades In The United States
Vancouver, British Columbia – October 4, 2023 – CoTec Holdings Corp. (TSXV: CTH; OTCQB: CTHCF) (“CoTec” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its common shares are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement in the United States through the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).
DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, a U.S. company that manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through DTC are considered to be “DTC eligible”.

Julian Treger, CoTec CEO commented, “We are very pleased to have finalised this process. DTC eligibility is expected to simplify the process of trading and enhance liquidity of the Company’s shares in the United States. This development could potentially open up an entirely new segment of investors for our Company, which we will be targeting through our investor relations and marketing efforts over the coming months.”
CoTec is a publicly traded investment issuer listed on the Toronto Venture Stock Exchange ("TSX- V") and the OTCQB and trades under the symbol CTH and CTHCF respectively.
