We believe this is another step in raising the visibility of Ceapro and unlocking the potential to build significant shareholder value,” commented Gilles Gagnon, M.Sc., MBA, President and CEO of Ceapro.

DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corp., a U.S. company that manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. DTC eligibility permits shares of Ceapro to be distributed, settled and serviced through DTC's automated processes, leveraging the efficiencies created through the electronic clearing and settlement of securities. DTC services provide cost benefits for investors and brokers trading Canadian securities in the United States.
