OTC Markets

OTC Markets Group organizes securities into the OTCQX®, OTCQB® and OTC Pink® tiered marketplaces. The marketplace on which a company trades reflects the integrity of its operations, its level of disclosure, and its degree of investor engagement.

The OTCQX® Best Marketplace is for established, investor-focused U.S. and global companies. To qualify for the OTCQX marketplace, companies must meet high financial standards, demonstrate compliance with U.S. securities laws, be current in their disclosure, and be sponsored by a professional third-party advisor. Designed for investor-focused companies, OTCQX ensures that investors and brokers have the quality of information that’s necessary to intelligently analyze, value, and trade their securities.

The OTCQB® Venture Marketplace is for entrepreneurial and development stage U.S. and international companies that are unable to qualify for OTCQX. To be eligible, companies must be current in their reporting and undergo an annual verification and management certification process. These standards provide a strong baseline of transparency, as well as the technology and regulation to improve the information and trading experience for investors. Companies must meet a minimum $0.01 bid price test and may not be in bankruptcy.

The OTC Pink® marketplace offers trading in a wide spectrum of equity securities through any broker. This marketplace is for all types of companies that are there by reasons of default, distress or design, which is why they are further segmented based on the level of information that they provide.

Wells Compliance

Wells Compliance Group is a technology-based services firm supporting the financial reporting needs of small-cap, publicly traded companies, and privately held firms whose lender, investor or shareholder base requires timely, periodic, GAAP-compliant financial reporting.

StoryCorp Consulting has developed, and released through Wells Compliance, its proprietary software, Financial Accounting Compliance Technology System, or “F.A.C.T.S.” F.A.C.T.S. is a web-based solution that simplifies data gathering and eliminates the need for client entries into their accounting ledgers. The data-gathering tool moves the transactional data gathering function as close to the source of the transaction (or event) as possible. It obtains data and documents related to a transaction, then automatically delivers them into a queue for processing by Wells Compliance. Trained personnel make entries into the company ledgers, then analyze the data and documents. As well, with its information platform, F.A.C.T.S. makes available to management, auditors and stakeholders an innovative way to truly understand their company’s real time financial condition.

Wells Compliance Group/StoryCorp Consulting is based in Los Angeles and New York, and has clients with operations on 3 continents. Services are provided on a flat fee basis for periodic reporting, and a menu basis for transition and transaction-based projects.
