Upgrading to the OTCQX Market is an important step for companies seeking to provide transparent trading for their U.S. investors. For companies listed on a qualified international exchange, streamlined market standards enable them to utilize their home market reporting to make their information available in the U.S. To qualify for OTCQX, companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance and demonstrate compliance with applicable securities laws.

“We are pleased that Telenor’s ADRs and ordinary shares will now trade on the top tier of the U.S. over-the-counter marketplaces. This will ensure improved visibility for Telenor in the overseas market and the best possible standards, accessibility and liquidity for U.S.-based investors that prefer to trade Telenor stock as USD-quoted securities during U.S. trading hours. We believe our continued dedication to deliver a combination of profitable growth and dividends will be attractive to U.S. investors,” Tone H. Bachke, Chief Financial Officer of Telenor says.

JP Morgan acted as the company’s OTCQX sponsor.
