Yippy, Inc. (YIPI) to Begin Trading on the OTCQX U.S.
FORT MYERS, Fla., May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Yippy, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: YIPI) (www.yippy.com) (“Yippy” or the “Company”), providers of the world’s fastest, family friendly search engine and web portal, announced today that its common stock will transition from the OTC Pink tier of the OTC marketplace and will begin trading on the quality-controlled OTCQX® U.S. trading platform (the “OTCQX U.S.”), effective Friday, May 4, 2012.
The OTCQX U.S. tier distinguishes the highest quality-controlled companies traded over-the-counter (OTC) from more than 9,000 securities traded on the OTC Bulletin Board and OTC Link platform that are not required to meet any additional financial standards or undergo a formal qualitative review. The OTCQX U.S. also offers a level of marketplace services formerly available only on the top U.S. exchanges, further distinguishing Yippy and its ongoing commitment to achieve the highest quality standards possible. This investor-friendly platform provides superior trading information and easy access through all major online and full-service U.S. brokerage firms. Trades are settled and cleared in the U.S. similar to any NASDAQ or NYSE security, and trade reports are disseminated through most financial data providers.
Investors can find current financial disclosure and Real-Time Level 2 quotes for Yippy, Inc. on www.otcmarkets.com. Lucosky Brookman LLP will serve as Yippy’s Designated Advisor for Disclosure (DAD) on OTCQX U.S., responsible for providing guidance on OTCQX U.S. requirements.
“OTCQX provides services to companies which enable them to communicate with and engage their investors, while providing them with transparent trading and easy access to company information,” stated R. Cromwell Coulson, President and Chief Executive Officer of OTC Markets Group. He added, “We are pleased to welcome Yippy to the OTCQX U.S.”
Richard Granville, Chief Executive Officer of Yippy, commented, “This is just the next step in our evolution as a company. The up-listing from the Pink Sheets to the OTCQX U.S. trading platform is a testament to everyone that has believed in our mission and team. This further signals that Yippy meets the highest qualitative standards among OTC traded companies.” He continued, “We still have a long way to go as a company to meet our goals, but the future does look bright for Yippy.”
