CounterPath to List on TSX-Venture Exchange and Announces Share Consolidation
Vancouver, BC, Canada — March 18, 2008 —
CounterPath Corporation (OTCBB: CPAH, formerly COPA), a leading provider of desktop and mobile VoIP software products and solutions, today announced that the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") has conditionally approved the listing of the Company's common shares on the TSX-V as a Tier 1 issuer. Trading of the common shares of the Company over the TSX Venture is conditional on the completion of standard requirements and the provision of standard documents to the TSX-V. Trading is expected to commence on the TSX-V Venture Exchange under the stock symbol "CCV" in July, 2008. Investors can continue trading common shares of CounterPath on the OTC BB under the new symbol CPAH.
"The TSX Venture listing will provide access to the Canadian capital markets which are receptive to high growth companies with innovative technologies," said Greg Pelling, Chief Executive Officer of CounterPath. "Listing on the TSX-V and filing in Canada along with the U.S. will enable Canadian investors to trade our stock in Canada within four months and qualify our shares for inclusion in Canadian Registered Savings Plans," concluded Pelling.
Concurrent with the conditional listing, the Board of Directors has approved a five for one common share consolidation effective March 19, 2008 ("the effective date"). The consolidation affects all shareholders uniformly and does not affect any shareholder's percentage interest in CounterPath. No fractional shares will be issued. Registered shareholders otherwise entitled to a fractional share interest as a result of the consolidation will be rounded up to the nearest whole share. As part of the consolidation, the Company's new trading symbol on the OTC BB is "CPAH". Shareholders holding share certificates will be sent a letter of transmittal by the Company's transfer agent, Valiant Trust Company, in order to receive a new certificate reflecting the consolidation.
