Gage Growth Corp. (“Gage” or the “Company”) (CSE: GAGE) (OTCQX: GAEGF), a leading high-quality cannabis premium brand and operator in Michigan, is pleased to announce that its subordinate voting shares have been approved for DTC full-service eligibility in the United States by the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) and can now be both traded and serviced through DTC’s electronic book-entry system.
DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corp. that provides clearing and settlement services for the financial markets and settles the majority of securities transactions in the United States. This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors and brokers, enabling the stock to be traded over a much wider selection of brokerage firms.
“This is another important milestone in making Gage’s shares accessible to the widest audience possible,” said Fabian Monaco, CEO of Gage. “Being DTC eligible will simplify and enhance the process for transferring the Company’s shares between brokerages in the United States and will provide increased liquidity.”
Closing of the Sturgis Dispensary Acquisition
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has closed its acquisition of a dispensary (the “Sturgis Dispensary”) located in Sturgis, Michigan. The Sturgis Dispensary is expected to be re-branded as a Cookies store and marks the 17th license in the Company’s retail portfolio. The dispensary is strategically located near the state of Indiana.
