Grown Rogue International Inc. (CSE: GRIN | OTC:GRUSF) (the “Company” or “Grown Rogue”) reports that the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has accepted Grown Rogue’s request for a ticker symbol change on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB) from “NVSIF” to “GRUSF”. The Company’s symbol on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) remains unchanged as “GRIN” for Grown Rogue International, Inc. There is no action required by current shareholders in connection with this change.
“An increasing number of United States based investors are looking for investment opportunities in the cannabis sector such as Grown Rogue and our symbol name change on the OTC to GRUSF (Grown Rogue United States) provides improved clarity for US investors looking to buy shares of Grown Rogue which are listed on the CSE,” said Obie Strickler CEO and Co-Founder of Grown Rogue. “In addition to the CSE we are now quoted in US dollars on the OTC for US investors under our new symbol “GRUSF”.
Grown Rogue is now operating or managing assets in three States: Oregon, California, and Michigan. The symbol name change follows the Company’s reverse takeover in November, 2018. The Company indicated no immediate plans to establish the stock for trading on additional exchanges, though the Company anticipates that a Frankfurt listing could soon be in the works.
“Most of our investors are US-based, and increasingly more retail US-based investors have been reaching out through our website and social media channels asking about how they can participate in our growth,” said Jacques Habra, Chief Strategy Officer of Grown Rogue.
Mr. Habra continued, “We have a dedicated office to investor relations that is based in Santa Barbara, California. We expect to hold investor conference calls and eventually an investor only conference as we continue to scale the company across the Country.”
Grown Rogue recently announced the intent to acquire Decibel Farms, owners of the Loud Cannabis Brand, and also announced record monthly revenue of just over $1.01 MM for April, 2019.
“Our vision is that our brand and ticker symbol will be synonymous with a responsible cannabis company focused on value creation,” added Mr. Strickler.
