This is really excellent news! OTCQX does look like the place to be for now. When we get above 1.00 OTCQX premier. We've waited a long time for this news. Hope some of the longs will share their thoughts. PR's should be coming out soon!
The platform is no different from otcqx and otcqx premier. They have the differences because those that qualify for premier are essentially meeting the requirements of a large exchange such as AMEX or NASDAQ, without having to pay a fee structure based on share count/value. Being on OTCQX premier costs the company no more than regular OTCQX, it simply meets higher standards to say it CAN be on premier. There's no added benefit. But, as stated, there are large companies that will be on OTCQX premier (i think roughly 60 altogether) that do so the maintain the status of the larger board companies without having to pay the costs of them, or meet certain auditing requirements (but still need to maintain quarterly and annual disclosures, etc).
