Field Trip Health & Wellness Announces Posting on the OTC Market
Trading on the OTCQB Effective February 2, 2023, under the Symbol “FTHWF”
TORONTO, Feb. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Field Trip Health & Wellness Ltd. (TSXV: FTHW) (the "Company" or “Field Trip”), global leader in the delivery of psychedelic therapies, is pleased to announce that the Company has received approval from the Financial Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) for its shares to commence trading on the OTCQB Market (“the OTCQB”) in the United States under the symbol “FTHWF” effective February 2, 2023. Field Trip will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under its existing symbol “FTHW”.
Ronan Levy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Field Trip Health & Wellness, stated, “Being posted on the OTCQB is a key milestone in our evolution as one of today’s leading providers of psychedelic therapy. As we enhance our efforts to bring a more holistic treatment program to the forefront of the mental health industry that combines technology, medicine, well-being, and community, it is of key importance that our progress is shared with a broad investor base. By trading on the OTCQB, we can achieve increased visibility of Field Trip to U.S. investors and improve our overall liquidity as we grow our global shareholder base.”
The Company also announced that as a result, in part, of the announcement by the US government of its intention to end the Public Health Emergency related to the COVID-19 Pandemic (the “PHE”), it is re-evaluating its Freedom by Field Trip program. The Freedom by Field Trip program relies on an exception to the Ryan Haight Act that permitted prescribing of controlled substances such as ketamine by telemedicine during the PHE. With the end of the PHE occurring in the first half of 2023, the Company is evaluating its strategy around the Freedom by Field Trip program and, as a result, has stopped enrolling new clients in the program.
