OTC Markets Group (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 with Qualified Companies; OTCQB®, the Venture Stage Marketplace with U.S. Reporting Companies; and OTC Pink®, the Open Marketplace with Variable Reporting Companies.

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.
