Dallas, Texas — NaturalShrimp, Inc., (OTCQB:SHMP), an aquaculture Company which has developed and patented the first commercially operational Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) for shrimp, announced today that it has filed its initial listing application with the NASDAQ, an important first step in the Company’s plan to uplist its common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market.
“The Company has been working tirelessly to complete all of the necessary steps to successfully meet the requirements for listing on the NASDAQ,” said William Delgado, CFO of NaturalShrimp. “If approved, upon meeting all the listing criteria, we feel this move will provide the Company the proper exposure to help broaden our shareholder base and increase appeal to institutional investors, ETFs and indexes. Through our potential purchase of Vero Blue and F&T, we believe our business model design provides us a path towards profitability,” added Mr. Delgado.
Gerald Easterling, CEO of NaturalShrimp, commented, “We believe NaturalShrimp is at an inflection point where the Company can grow exponentially. NaturalShrimp has been a pioneer and innovator in the aquaculture industry for two decades, and uplisting to the NASDAQ would help validate our continued drive to become a leader within the aqua-tech space,” continued Mr. Easterling.
NASDAQ must approve NaturalShrimp’s application before the Company’s common stock can be listed. While there are no guarantees that the Company will be approved, NaturalShrimp is continuing to make strides in meeting the listing criteria in the near future.
