SHERMAN OAKS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 19, 2023 / Avenir Wellness Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:AVRW) ("Avenir" or the "Company"), a proprietary broad platform technology and wellness company, announced today that the trading of its common stock has been moved back to the OTC Market Group Inc.'s (the "OTC Market Group") OTCQB market (the "OTCQB"), effective as of September 15, 2023.
As previously announced on April 19, 2023, Avenir appointed Urish Popeck & Co., LLC ("Urish Popeck") as its new independent registered public accounting firm. Urish Popeck has a highly respected reputation in the financial accounting industry and the Company's Board of Directors and Audit Committee unanimously decided to engage this firm. Urish Popeck's immediate assignment upon engagement was to complete an audit of the Company's financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, and on July 28, 2023, the Company filed its 2022 Annual Report on Form 10-K ("Form 10-K") and its March 31, 2023 Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
As a direct result of the timing of the change in Avenir's auditor, the completion of its 2022 annual audit and the filing of its Form 10-K were delayed beyond the May 15, 2023 OTC Markets Group's deadline and, effective as of May 17, 2023, Avenir's common stock was moved from the OTCQB to the OTC Pink Market. Upon getting current with its SEC filings, the Company immediately re-applied to move the trading of its securities back to the OTCQB. On September 14, 2023, the OTC Markets Group notified the Company that its common stock would be re-listed on the OTCQB, effective September 15, 2023.
"We are very pleased with the quick return of the Company's common stock to the OTCQB. This removes the trading limitations inherent with the OTC Pink Market, which will benefit our shareholders. Our internal finance team along with Urish Popeck worked diligently on getting the filings completed. We have met all filing deadlines since regaining compliance and are prepared to remain current with all future filings," stated Joel Bennett, Chief Financial Officer of Avenir.
