Highlights

FYI Resources Ltd (ASX: FYI, OTCQX:FYIRF) (“FYI” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has qualified and secured approval to allow real time electronic clearing and settlement in North America for its OTCQX-traded common shares through the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (“DTCC”) in the United States.

FYI has received full-service eligibility from the Depository Trust Company, the company that manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies (DTC) and is now able to complete real time electronic clearing and settlement in the US.

FYI has previously informed the market of its intention to seek electronic settlement services in the US after gaining a secondary quotation on OTCQX market in 2021 (Ticker code: OTCQX:FYIRF) with leading US investment bank, B.Riley Financial Inc as FYI’s OTC Sponsor.

FYI’s OTCQX FYRIF shares are the same class of ordinary shares as FYI’s ASX traded stock (ASX: FYI). FYI’s shares are fully fungible, registered in two different countries. The US compliance requirements to trade on the OTC, and settled on the DTC, are essentially the same as the ASX requirements with the Company’s releases and disclosures being automatically uploaded onto the OTC news release platform.

Many online brokers, including major financial institutions such as Ameritrade, Fidelity, Charles Schwab and E-Trade offer OTCQX trading and settlement services.

One of the advantages of having DTC qualification for the OTCQX FYIRF traded stocks is the ease of trading for US investors and the ability to trade in the North American time zone and settle in US dollars.

FYI Managing Director, Mr. Roland Hill, commented “We are excited that we now have electronic trading of FYI stock in North America. The DTC will provide choice, simplicity and accessibility to our growing investor community in the US. Our goal is to become fully engaged in the US and broaden our appeal to a larger pool of investors. We feel the DTC is a major step forward for FYI in terms establishing a presence and investor awareness in the largest capital market in the world”.
