OXFORD, Ohio and COCONUT CREEK, Fla., Oct. 21, 2021 /CNW/ -- PsyBio Therapeutics Corp. (TSXV: PSYB) (OTCQB: PSYBF) ("PsyBio" or the "Company"), an intellectual property driven biotechnology company developing new, bespoke, approvable psycho-targeted therapeutics to potentially improve mental and neurological health, is pleased to announce that its subordinate voting shares are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through the Depository Trust Company ("DTC") in the United States.
"With DTC eligibility, existing investors may benefit from greater liquidity and execution speeds. This also opens the door to new investors that may have been previously restricted from trading in our subordinate voting shares and simplifies the process of trading our subordinate voting shares in the United States," stated Evan Levine, CEO of PsyBio. "The ancitipated liquidity increase is expect to provide current and prospective US investors further opportunities to participate in PsyBio's growth. This is a timely development, as PsyBio recently announced that it has submitted its first Pre-Investigational New Drug ("IND") Application Meeting request to the US Food and Drug Administration and successfully demonstrated commercial scale manufacturing feasibility."
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. DTC eligibility is expected to create a seamless electronic trading process and thereby enhance the liquidity of the Company's subordinate voting shares.
