Evolving Gold Corp Becomes Tier 1 Issuer on the TSX Venture Exchange
VANCOUVER, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Evolving Gold Corp. (TSXV: EVG) (OTCBB: EVOGF) (FSE:EV7) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has successfully graduated to the Tier 1 issuer level on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), effective Monday, November 3, 2008.
As defined in TSXV Policy 2.1, Tier 1 is the TSX Venture Exchange's premier tier and is reserved for the most advanced listed companies with the most significant financial resources. Tier 1 listed companies also benefit from decreased filing requirements and improved service standards.
The Company wishes to announce its intent to file a Form 15-F today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to voluntary terminate its duty to file reports under the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934 given the small percentage of trading of the Company's shares on over-the-counter market in the United States relative to the costs associated with SEC compliance and the relatively small number of US holders of the Company's shares. The company expects the termination to take effect no later than ninety days after the filing the Form 15-F.
The Company reassures U.S. investors that trading in Evolving Gold securities should not be affected by this change, as the Company's securities can continue to be traded on the TSX Venture Exchange through their U.S. Brokerage accounts.
All investors in the shares of the company are accorded protection by the Company's continued compliance with the rules of the TSXV. The Company's shares of common stock are listed for trading on the TSXV, located in the Province of Ontario, Canada, which constitutes its primary trading market. The Company's shares of common stock also trade on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
The Company will also continue to make publicly available information otherwise provided to its US and other shareholders by filing such information on http://www.sedar.com/, the website of the Canadian Securities Administrators.
