Green Star Products, Inc. Name Change from BAT International Now Recognized by Most Internet Financial Stock Quote Services.
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 2002
Green Star Products, Inc. (OTC :GSPI) (formerly BAT International, Inc. under trading symbol BAAT) has completed an evaluation of Internet stock quote services to determine if the change of name of the corporation and stock symbol has been recognized prior to coming out with some important announcements next week. It appears that most of these services now recognize the stock symbol GSPI. Unfortunately they no longer recognize the stock symbol BAAT. These quotation systems contain a variety of information about the company including trading histories. Some sites do not show recent company news and only Bloomberg has an extensive record of company announcements for Green Star Products, Inc.
The following is a list of financial quotation services investigated and the type of data recorded on their systems:
