Empower Clinics Inc has announced that its common shares are now trading on OTCQB Venture Market under the symbol EPWCF. "This is an extremely exciting announcement for Empower's market presence in the U.S.," said CEO Steven McAuley in a statement. "Empower shares are now accessible to a trove of new U.S. based retail and institutional investors. This expanded visibility is a huge step forward as we continue our aggressive North American expansion in the integrated healthcare space." The OTCQB is a well-regarded public financial market for international companies across a variety of sectors -- an ideal next step for Empower as the market has a particular focus on entrepreneurial and fast-developing companies. 

Gevo Inc (NASDAQ:GEVO)’s recently announced letter of intent (LOI) with a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) to jointly invest in building and operating one or more new facilities that would process inedible corn to produce sustainable aviation fuel is a “game changer,” according to the analysts at Noble Capital Markets.

Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX-V:BEA) intends to apply for approval of a warrant exercise incentive program with the TSX Venture Exchange. As announced on March 31, 2020 and April 28, 2020, the company completed private placement offerings of 6,655,500 units at $0.03. Each unit was comprised of one common share and one share purchase warrant for two years at $0.05 from the date of issuance. The company has 5,780,500 outstanding Placement Warrants priced at 0.05 cents expiring March 31, 2022 and April 28, 2022. Under the proposed Incentive Program, if the Placement Warrants are exercised prior to 4 p.m. (Vancouver Time) on the 30th day after TSX Venture Exchange Approval, the Placement Warrant holder will receive one additional warrant in consideration of the early exercise of each Placement Warrant. Each Incentive Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one common share at $0.10 per share for a period of one year from the date of issuance. The company believes this will give existing Placement Warrant holders the right incentive to exercise their Placement Warrants.

The OCS is the largest retailer of cannabis products in Canada and set the stage for rapid expansion. It's a significant milestone for both the Phyto Extractions brand and Adastra Labs.
