OTCQX International Application Process

The OTCQX application process offers a streamlined approach to accessing U.S. investors.

  1. Appoint a Principal American Liaison (PAL), which may be an ADR bank, a qualified investment bank, or an attorney. PALs help guide foreign companies through the application process and provide resources for navigating the U.S. Market.
  2. Obtain priced broker-dealer quotations on OTC Link™ ATS.
  3. Upload the past two years of financials required by the company’s home country exchange listing, in English, to the OTCQX website.
  4. List your company in a Recognized Securities Manual, such as Standard and Poor’s or the Mergent Manual, so brokers may verify compliance with state Blue Sky laws and recommend your company’s security to investors.
  5. The PAL submits an initial letter confirming compliance with all OTCQX marketplace rules.
