The process of listing on the NASDAQ involves several steps and milestones and is subject for approval, all of which can take time. The addition of Russell and his expertise should help fast track the up-listing process.

The Benefits of Uplisting to Major Exchanges

Although there are a variety of reasons a company will move to a senior exchange like the TSX or NASDAQ, uplisting includes some notable benefits. After all, when a company is granted permission to list on a major exchange, it signals to investors that that company has hit a major milestone, providing instant credibility.

If Universal mCloud is accepted to the NASDAQ, the company will gain increased exposure and visibility as well as access to a large pool of institutional and retail investors. What’s more, the larger volume of stock traded on senior exchanges opens up Universal mCloud to the possibility of more liquidity and share appreciation.

Other notable benefits of Universal mCloud uplisting to the NASDAQ include gaining access to analyst coverage, trade monitoring, market intelligence, index inclusion, and better funding terms.

Investors interested in Universal mCloud will no doubt be keeping an eye out for news of its acceptance into the TSX and NASDAQ. The company’s trade volume remained low on Monday following the news, and its share price dropped slightly.

As of 3:30 pm EST, Universal mCloud’s share price was down 0.57% on the OTC to $0.30 USD and was unmoved on the TSXV.
