Going public is a worthwhile endeavor but can be a long and complex process without guidance from a consulting firm. Acquiring DTC Eligibility and listing on the optimal stock exchange for your company increase its chance for success on the open market. DTC Eligibility allows the Depository Trust Company (DTC) to deposit the company’s securities. This helps companies publicly trade and transfer shares quicker among brokers. Some large exchanges require companies to register their securities with DTC as FAST and DRS eligible securities, but it is not required for all OTC listings. All major exchanges have a set of listing requirements before issuers are eligible to trade their securities on that market. Listing on exchanges is an effective way to raise capital and increase your company’s investor reach. Increasing investors directly translates to the ability to raise funds and grow your company.
