CHICAGO, Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Marquette National Corporation (OTCQX: MNAT) today announced that its common stock began trading today on the OTCQX marketplace, operated by OTC Markets Group. Prior to this, the Company's shares traded on the OTCQB marketplace. The Company's stock symbol, "MNAT", remains the same.
To qualify for the OTCQX marketplace, banks and bank holding companies must meet high financial standards and be current in their reporting to bank regulators. They are also required to provide quarterly financial results and timely dissemination of material events and appoint a Corporate Broker, a FINRA-member broker-dealer, to serve as their OTCQX advisor. Collectively, these actions provide a trusted marketplace which builds confidence with shareholders and potential investors. Over time, the Company believes the OTCQX marketplace will provide better visibility and exposure to the Company, which would improve the liquidity of the Company's stock.
Paul M. McCarthy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, "One of the Company's primary goals of applying to be a part of the OTCQX marketplace, in conjunction with our recent 4-for-1 stock split, was to improve the liquidity of the Company's common stock over time. These actions are intended to make our stock accessible to a wider range of investors with the hope that it will increase our overall shareholder base."
McAdams Wright Ragen, Inc. serves as the Company's Corporate Broker on OTCQX.
