OTC Markets Group, Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM) operates Open, Transparent and Connected financial marketplaces for 10,000 U.S. and global securities. We organize these securities into three marketplaces to better inform investors of opportunities and risks: OTCQX®, the best marketplace; OTCQB®, the venture stage marketplace; and OTC Pink®, the open marketplace.

OTC Link® ATS, our SEC-registered Alternative Trading System, directly links a diverse network of broker-dealers that provide liquidity and execution services for these securities. Our data-driven platform enables investors to easily trade through the broker of their choice at the best possible price and empowers a broad range of companies to improve the quality and availability of information for their investors.

OTC Link ATS is operated by OTC Link LLC, a FINRA/SIPC member and wholly-owned subsidiary of OTC Markets Group.
