tZERO’s wholly owned, FINRA member broker-dealer subsidiary, tZERO ATS, operates an organized and automated marketplace for trading private digital securities. American Films is the first over-the-counter traded company to move to trade on the tZERO ATS.

tZERO Interim CEO and Chief Legal Officer Alan Konevsky stated, "The delay in trading is a carefully considered decision as American Films embarks on its broad-based asset digitization strategy. We look forward to digitizing American Films common stock once it completes its corporate actions, and trading it, which we anticipate will commence on the tZERO ATS in Q4 2021."

American Films owns, develops, and acquires intellectual property, which it seeks to monetize through proprietary technology, enforcement of rights, and asset digitization. Its processes and technology include FACTERRA, a web-based evidence gathering program that identifies instances of copyright infringement, allowing American Films to pursue intellectual property protection on behalf of copyright owners.

American Films CEO and President John Carty shared, "We are excited to share more details about our planned stock split, as well as our digitization roadmap. We believe the company is better positioned for growth and significant shareholder value creation by delaying the trading of American Films’ common stock on the tZERO ATS."

Customers of tZERO’s retail broker-dealer subsidiary, tZERO Markets, will be able to trade American Films common stock on the tZERO ATS. Investors who do not yet have an account at tZERO Markets should visit https://www.tzero.com/investors/register for details on how to open a brokerage account so they are able to trade American Films common stock once it starts trading in Q4 2021.
