Aqua Vie Beverage Corporation ... Update On Stock Symbol.
Aqua Vie Beverage Corporation -- formerly (OTC BB:AVBC), as of 8/6/99 (OTC BB:AVBCE) -- was one of hundreds of companies to whose stock symbol an "E" was appended on 8/6/99.
Aqua Vie announced today that it expects to be in compliance with a Securities and Exchange regulations requiring companies to be fully reporting in order to be publicly traded on the OTC Bulletin Board. The "E" appended to the stock symbol indicates that a security will be ineligible for quotation and subject to removal from the OTC Bulletin Board 30 calendar days from the date the "E" is appended (60 days if denoted with a plus sign ("+"), 90 days if denoted with two plus signs ("++")), unless the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) is notified that the company is current with regard to its public reporting requirements pursuant to the regulations.
"While the company had hoped to have its filing completed prior to August 6 (the date on which the "E" was appended to its stock symbol), circumstances relating to Aqua Vie's emergence from bankruptcy have complicated the reporting process. However, Aqua Vie is preparing documentation and we intend to be in compliance within the 30-day time frame," said Thomas Gillespie, president of Aqua Vie Beverage Corporation.
