In conjunction with the OTCQB listing, the Company also announces that it has received DTC eligibility by The Depository Trust Company ("DTC") for electronic settlement and transfer of its common shares in the United States. With DTC eligibility, investors benefit from greater liquidity and execution speeds while allowing access to additional new investors that may not have had the opportunity to trade the Company's shares.

Listing on the OTCQB is a significant development for Hanstone, affording the Company greater visibility within the U.S. investment community and abroad. This additional exposure is expected to enhance our liquidity and increase Hanstone's exposure to institutional and retail investors outside of Canada to the benefit of all its shareholders."
