Top Strike Resources Corp. d.b.a. Vencanna Ventures Inc. (“Vencanna” or the “Corporation”) (CSE:VENI, OTCQB:TPPRF) is pleased to announce that its common shares (the “Common Shares”) have been approved to commence trading on the OTCQB Venture Market (“OTCQB”), a US trading platform that is operated by the OTC Markets Group in New York. Effective December 16, 2019, Vencanna has commenced trading on the OTCQB under the symbol “TPPRF”. The Common Shares will continue to trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) under the symbol “VENI”.

“The listing of Vencanna’s Common Shares to the OTCQB Exchange is an exciting milestone as we remain continually focused on creating value for our shareholders in multiple ways. Even though Vencanna has been a fully reporting company since its inception and listing to the CSE, we believe that the broader exposure afforded by the OTCQB will raise our visibility within the US investment community and assist in increasing the liquidity of our Common Shares. In addition, we believe that trading on this established US based public market will help to generate exposure for Vencanna among institutional investors both in Canada and the US,” stated Vencanna CEO David McGorman.


About Vencanna

On September 24, 2018, the Corporation announced the completion of a recapitalization financing, the appointment of a new management team and board of directors and commencement of trading on the CSE. The transactions have transitioned the Corporation from an oil and gas issuer to a merchant capital firm, rebranded as “Vencanna Ventures Inc.”. The recapitalized Corporation aims to be a go-to capital provider for early-stage global cannabis initiatives with an emphasis on strong management operating in state compliant jurisdictions with barriers to entry. The Corporation looks to provide investors with a diversified, high-growth, cannabis investment strategy through strategic investments focused through-out the value chain (cultivation, processing and distribution, and including ancillary businesses).
