EV Biologics Corp, OTC PINK:YECO, today updated shareholders with the latest information about its submitted FINRA applications for name change and NFT dividend distribution.
The Company announced on August 6, 2020, that it had submitted its name change filing with FINRA. The Company had previously moved its domicile from Cayman Islands to Wyoming on April 12, 2019 and received its new CUSIP number on August 20, 2020. After a year and a half of numerous FINRA submissions, this normally straightforward application process has come to a halt. FINRA has ruled that the Company must be fully reporting with the SEC to proceed with the name change. The Company is current in its filings under the OTC Alternative Reporting Standard.
Changing the reporting status of the Company from the OTC Alternative Reporting to SEC reporting would present a massive expense of time and resources, and a totally unnecessary diversion right now. Currently, the Company is focusing all its resources on execution of its established plan for technological innovation in biomanufacturing of cell-derived nanomedicines and is preparing patent applications for the supporting intellectual property. At this time, diversion of any further resources toward financial regulatory filings, related to the name change, will not provide any advantage to the Company’s primary technical development objectives.
Furthermore, the Company previously submitted filings to FINRA for the NFT dividend distribution in Q3, 2021. This is the first time that any public company has attempted to distribute a NFT digital asset as a dividend. The Company completed the production and minting of the NFTs as previously announced. This effort has also been met with several regulatory obstructions, and at this time, the Company will suspend the distribution of this dividend, until the regulators progress in their understanding and application of digital assets.
