DIRTT Environmental Solutions Ltd. (“DIRTT” or the “Company”) (TSX:DRT), an interior construction company that uses technology for client-driven design and manufacturing, announced today that it has publicly filed a registration statement on Form 10 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to register its common shares pursuant to Section 12(b) of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) and has applied to list its common shares on the Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”) under the ticker symbol “DRTT”. DIRTT’s common shares will continue to trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Upon the effectiveness of the registration statement on Form 10 and concurrent listing on Nasdaq, DIRTT will comply with the reporting and disclosure requirements of the Exchange Act applicable to companies that are not foreign private issuers and applicable securities laws in Canada. The Company anticipates that it will request the SEC to declare its registration statement on Form 10 effective in mid-October, at which time the Company expects that its common shares will be listed to trade on Nasdaq.
A registration statement on Form 10 has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy.
