TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2021 /CNW/ - Odd Burger Corporation (TSXV: ODD) (OTCQB: ODDAF) (FSE: IA9), one of the world's first vegan fast-food chains and first to go public, today announced it has received eligibility from the Depository Trust Company (DTC), the largest securities depository in the world, enabling its stock to be more easily purchased by U.S. investors. This eligibility is required for publicly traded companies in order for securities to be deposited through DTC.
Separately, the company announced it has begun trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol IA9, making its stock accessible to most European investors. The FSE is the twelfth largest stock exchange in the world by market capitalization, and the largest in Germany.
"Our intention to be a publicly traded company has always been strategic, to maintain a level of independence that isn't always possible when companies accept venture capital or investments from large food and agriculture conglomerates," said Odd Burger co-founder and CEO James McInnes. "In Canada, the United States, and now Europe, we can be supported directly by people who share our vision to transform the fast-food industry, and that includes our regular customers."
In addition, Odd Burger has changed its U.S. ticker symbol on the OTCQB to ODDAF.
The vegan fast-food concept pioneer currently has six locations, plus four in development, and plans to have 20 restaurants operational by this time next year in the U.S. and Canada. Odd Burger produces its own proprietary plant-based product line at a company-owned food manufacturing facility, another way it remains independent from third-party suppliers.
