OTC Markets Group, Inc

Foreign listed issuers can expand their US investor ownership and shareholder base when joining OTCQX, while simultaneously growing local market volume, liquidity, and valuation without additional complexity. Hundreds of non-US listed issuers have successfully used the OTCQX Best Market to enable US brokers and investors to quote and trade their shares in US dollars during US market hours.

At the OTCQX, OTCQB and Pink Markets, OTC Markets create efficient markets for more than 10,000 securities, including 6,000 international companies, which are held by the largest US institutions and US retail investors.

No SEC filing requirements apply in relation to having shares quoted on OTC Markets. While not limited to large companies, OTC Markets provide market services to some of the best-known issuers in Europe, among them several Norwegian companies.
