Maston N. Cunningham, President and CEO stated, "Tri-Valley has completed arrangements for the transition of its common stock to be quoted and traded on the OTCQB(TM) Marketplace. We believe that the transition to the OTCQB(TM) Marketplace will reduce costs and will allow for a continued orderly trading market for Tri-Valley's common stock as we continue to review our liquidity position and strategic alternatives and objectives."
The transition to the OTCQB(TM) Marketplace does not change Tri-Valley's obligation to file periodic and other reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission under applicable federal securities laws. In addition, the transition of Tri-Valley's stock to the OTCQB(TM) Marketplace will have no effect on the shares themselves.
OTC Markets Group Inc. operates the world's largest electronicmarketplace for broker-dealers to trade unlisted stocks, including the OTCQB(TM) Marketplace. Investors will be able to view the Real Time Level II stock quote, which provides detailed quote information by broker-dealers, for Tri-Valley at www.otcmarkets.com under the ticker symbol "TVLY".
