  • DTC eligibility is expected to increase the accessibility of HEALWELL’s stock for U.S. investors.

TORONTO, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HEALWELL AI Inc. (“HEALWELL” or the “Company”) (TSX: AIDX), a data science and AI company focused on preventative care, is pleased to announce that it has received approval to begin trading on the OTCQX® Best Market (the “OTCQX”) and its Class A Subordinate Voting Shares will begin trading under the ticker “HWAIF” as of November 21, 2023. HEALWELL is also pleased to announce that the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) has made HEALWELL’s Class A Subordinate Voting Shares eligible for electronic deposit at DTC. The Company believes that the opportunity to clear and settle trades in its Class A Subordinate Voting Shares on the OTCQX should provide a more seamless experience for its U.S. shareholders.

“This is an exciting milestone for HEALWELL, as we proudly announce our approval to commence trading on the OTCQX® Best Market and our achievement of DTC eligibility. Trading on the OTCQX represents a crucial step forward in our U.S. capital markets strategy, allowing us to expand our reach and enhance accessibility for U.S. investors,” said Alexander Dobranowski, CEO of HEALWELL. “The OTCQX is the highest market tier of OTC Markets, and we believe that this accomplishment will aid us in our ambitious growth plans as we facilitate the broadening of our investor community and increase our liquidity in the North American markets.”

To qualify for the OTCQX, companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance and demonstrate compliance with applicable securities laws. The OTCQX market includes both multinational companies seeking access to U.S. investors and domestic growth companies. To be traded on this tier, companies must undergo a qualitative review by OTC Markets Group. U.S. investors can find real-time quotes and market information for the Company at https://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/HWAIF/overview. There will be no change to HEALWELL’s trading under the TSX Exchange symbol “AIDX”.

DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation, one of the world’s largest securities depositories. It manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. A larger number of HEALWELL’s securities are now eligible to be electronically cleared and settled which allows a more streamlined process of trading, enhanced liquidity, and the provision of more direct access to investors in the U.S. OTC capital markets.
