Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RavenQuest BioMed Inc. (the “Company” or “RavenQuest”) – (CSE:RQB) (OTCQB:RVVQF) (Frankfurt:1IT) is pleased to announce that OTC Markets Group Inc. has advised of its qualification and has confirmed commencement of trading on the OTCQB market in the United States, with immediate effect.  RavenQuest’s common shares commenced trading under the symbol “RVVQF”.

To qualify to trade on OTCQB, companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance, demonstrate compliance with U.S. securities laws, and have a professional third-party sponsor introduction.

RavenQuest CEO, George Robinson, stated that “trading on the OTCQB will allow RavenQuest to leverage our existing Canadian Securities Exchange listing as we look to expand our capital markets presence.  The OTCQB provides easy access, transparency and piece of mind for U.S. investors.  Established companies trade on the OTCQB and it is an honor for our company to have met the high standards required for listing.”

“The Cannabis Act federally legalizes the adult recreational use of cannabis in Canada.  Having passed through the House of Commons, the bill is now in the final stages of the legislative process.  Canada’s cannabis-friendly investment climate is a unique opportunity in this rapidly growing segment of the global economy, and RavenQuest is an even more unique company within the Canadian cannabis sector.  Our focus upon Indigenous communities, our game-changing grow technology, our plant optimization science and our management services all allow for diversified revenue streams and tremendous growth potential.  We welcome every opportunity to share our story with the world, and an OTCQB listing is a big step in that direction,” Robinson continued.

RavenQuest was sponsored for OTCQB by Burns, Figa & Will, P.C., a qualified third-party firm responsible for providing guidance on OTCQB requirements and recommending membership.

RavenQuest will continue to trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) under the symbol “RQB”.
