What Lies Ahead for FYI?

The Company is in the process of seeking eligibility from the US-based financial services firm, Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTC). However, this process is independent of trading on the OTCQX market.

Such eligibility will ensure a more transparent and liquid market for FYI’s common shares within the US, much like daily on-market trading on the Australian Securities Exchange. The Company expects the completion of the process of seeking DTC eligibility during May 2021.

FYI notified that the OTCQX trading will be carried out via OTC market maker, B.Riley Financial, in the meantime.
