OTC Listings: FINRA Updates the OTCBB/OTC Equities High Price Dissemination List

July 23, 2009

FINRATM is publishing its quarterly OTCBB/OTC Equities High Price Dissemination List, which will be available via a Unit of Trade query of the Daily List. This updated list of OTC Equity Securities eligible for trade report dissemination for trades of fewer than 100 shares will be effective July 27, 2009. All changes can be viewed by going to http://www.otcbb.com/AllDailyList/ and selecting the “Unit of Trade Changes” in the “Search by Date Range” and selecting the July 24, 2009 as the “From” date.

As discussed in OTCBB April 15, 2008 News Item (http://www.otcbb.com/news/2008/GeneralNews/041508.stm), for all OTC Equity Securities that trade at or above $175.00, transactions of fewer than 100 shares are no longer considered “odd-lot” transactions for dissemination purposes. Instead, FINRA has designated the unit of trade for these securities as one (1), and FINRA disseminates last sale information for all transactions of one or more shares in such securities. FINRA reviews trading activity quarterly to determine whether additional OTC equity securities meet the stated dissemination criteria.

For further information, please refer to the FINRA Trade Reporting Notice.
