In the OTC Markets' July 2015 Newsletter, CEO Cromwell Coulson discussed the progress the OTC Markets has made in transforming the "existing OTCQB market into a premium venture market for developing public companies."
Cromwell stated, "Today we can truly say America has a real Venture Market for public companies! It is the market developing companies need today so they can grow tomorrow." and "OTCQB is providing a more transparent, better regulated public trading market for developing companies that are committed to providing a high-quality trading and information experience for their investors."
The Newsletter also highlighted some statistics regarding the roughly 1,000 approved companies trading on the OTCQB.
