DTC eligibility simplifies the process of trading and transferring the Company’s common shares between brokerages in the United States

KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA — DECEMBER 7, 2022 – Progressive Planet (TSXV: PLAN) (OTCQB: ASHXF) (“Progressive Planet”, “PLAN”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its common shares are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement in the United States through the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).

DTC eligibility is expected to simplify the process of trading and enhance liquidity of PLAN’s shares in the United States. The Company’s shares recently began trading on the OTCQB® Venture Market (“OTCQB”) under the ticker symbol “ASHXF”.

This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors and brokers, enabling the stock to be traded over a much wider selection of brokerage firms by coming into compliance with their requirements.

“DTC eligibility is an important step for Progressive Planet in our ongoing efforts to introduce our Company to a broader audience of potential investors,” said Steve Harpur, CEO of Progressive Planet.

Progressive Planet’s common shares will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “PLAN”.
