Pasha Brands Receives Clearance from the Depository Trust Company

VANCOUVER, BC (August 7, 2019) – Pasha Brands Ltd. (“Pasha” or “Company”) (CSE: CRFT) (OTC:CRFTF) (FSE:ZZD), today announced that the Company has secured eligibility by the Depository Trust Company (DTC) for its shares on the OTC Markets.

The DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies in the United States. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered DTC-eligible. Pasha’s common shares are now fully DTC-eligible, and trade under the symbol “CRFTF” on the OTC Markets. This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors.

“We are very pleased to have obtained DTC eligibility,” said Patrick Brauckmann, Executive Chairman of Pasha Brands. “This status will make the process of trading our stock in the United States much easier. We expect that this will make our shares available to a larger percentage of the investment market, which should improve the liquidity of our shares and therefore benefit Pasha and our shareholders.”

Established in 1973 under the incorporation laws of New York for trust companies, the DTC has grown to one of the largest securities depositories in the world holding securities valued at upwards of $54 trillion (2017).
