WINDSOR, ON / ACCESSWIRE / December 11, 2015 / The Silicon Valley Insider (or “SVI”), a technology focused Investment Newsletter would like to alert investors regarding several emerging investment opportunities that present unprecedented ongoing growth potential.
For most companies trading over the counter (OTC), an uplisting to a higher exchange is for the most part, the Holy Grail. Getting there is never easy and for many uplisting is but a fleeting dream. When one looks at the prerequisites for uplisting, it’s not difficult to see why for many this is but a dream.
Companies trading on the lower exchanges have to meet a raft of standards before they can be considered for a listing on exchanges like the NASDAQ or NYSE.
To be listed on the NYSE for instance, a company must have aggregate pre-tax earnings in the prior three years of at least $11 million. In the prior two years, those earnings must be at least $2.2 million and in no year in the prior three years can it have a net loss.
In addition to that, cash reserve requirements are high. A company must have a minimum aggregate cash flow of at least $27.5 million.
Finally, and perhaps most important, companies are required to keep their fiscal performance up to par. Companies can be removed from the exchange if its share price falls below a certain level.
The Rewards of Uplisting Are Well Worth the Effort
Once a company does manage to prove itself and satisfy uplisting requirements, the benefits are tremendous. The biggest benefit is increased visibility. Whereas a lower listing confined a company to simple over the counter exchanges between individuals, a bigger listing gives a company access to the biggest players in the stock market. Institutional investors such as hedge funds now become a part of the conversation for newly uplisted companies.
Newly uplisted companies also benefit from higher trading volumes (greater liquidity). Studies from large exchanges such as the NASDAQ, confirm that post-uplisting, companies can see 3-month average daily volume increase from 59K to 137K – a 132% increase.
In the early periods after uplisting, a company usually gets intense coverage from top analysts, thereby making the company’s stock more attractive to investors. In every way, uplisting is the way to go and we’ve found four companies that are newly minted or submitted their application.
IEG Holdings Corp. (IEGH) provides online unsecured consumer loans to individuals. The company offers a variety of loan products, including debt consolidation, medical expenses, home improvements, auto repairs, major purchases, and discretionary spending.
IEGH has submitted its application for uplisting to the NASDAQ and there is a real sense on Wall Street that the company could be newly minted very soon. Driving this underlying sentiment is of course the sheer numbers being done by IEGH in terms of loan growth.
Recently Wall Street got some insight into the pace that IEGH is growing after it announced that its cumulative loan volume has increased by 1,728% from $587,000 to $10,729,023 as of November 30, 2015. IEGH cited three main drivers for the rapid growth in loan volume:
1. Its online lending portal at www.mramazingloans.com is getting a lot of traffic
2. Low acquisition cost lead sources
3. Continued license expansion
That last driver is worth expanding on, not least because it shows what the company is doing on the ground and ultimately, where it could end up in the online lending space which produced a whopping $12 billion worth of loans in 2014. IEGH prior to July 2015, offered loans in 3 states. That number has been increased to 16 after the company added California, Alabama and Louisiana. The company has stated that it plans to offer loans in 25 states by mid-2016. If that goal is met IEGH will have coverage for 250 million people or roughly 80% of the US population.
It is worth pointing out again that IEGH has already submitted its application for uplisting to the NASDAQ. Investors are therefore well served in keeping a shrewd eye on the company from now on.

Cynapsus Therapeutics Inc. (CYNA) is a specialty pharmaceutical company, engages in developing an enhanced dosing formulation of an approved drug used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The important thing to know too is that CYNA had a recent uplisting to the NASDAQ. The company made good on its plans and had a US re-IPO worth $72.5 million.
Since uplisting CYNA has become one of the most talked about companies on Wall Street and its progress on the ground is gaining wider and wider visibility. Recently CYNA announced that it has successfully completed the CTH-200 bridging study comparing APL-130277 to subcutaneous apomorphine. The CTH-200 study was a single-dose, crossover comparative bioavailability and pharmacokinetic study in healthy volunteers.
The increased liquidity and visibility are strong catalysts for CYAN which incidentally, has traded as high as 18.50 in the last 12 months.
Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) is engaged in the discovery and development of drugs for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions of the central nervous system. AVXL also recently got uplisted to the NASDAQ and since then has been on fire. Daily volume levels have soared, so much so that current 30-day average volume now stands at 5.9 million shares. In the last 12 months the stock has hit a high of 14.84.
AVXL has been making good progress with its lead Alzheimer’s drug therapy, ANAVEX 3-71. Late November the company said that ANAVEX 3-71 has tested to be a potent cognitive enhancer in Alzheimer’s disease models and that the pre-clinical results will be published in the scientific journal “Neurodegenerative Disease.”
“At very low doses, it mitigates cognitive deficits and normalizes major pathological hallmarks in Alzheimer’s disease models indicating that ANAVEX 3-71 exerts a comprehensive disease-modifying effect,” said AVXL in the statement.
Company CEO Christopher U. Missling, PhD, recently spoke at the third annual roundtable on the implementation of the Mental Health Parity Addiction and Equity Act (MHPAEA) of 2008. The event which was held on December 8, has served to focus more attention on the growing biotech.
Stellar Biotechnologies, Inc. (SBOT) is a leading player in the sustainable manufacture of Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (“KLH”) and on November 3 it announced its uplisting to the NASDAQ.
This is a significant milestone for Stellar and an important step in our corporate growth,” said Frank Oakes, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. “We anticipate that the listing of our shares on NASDAQ will raise our visibility within the investment community and with institutional investors, and will offer our shareholders an opportunity for increased liquidity.”
Since uplisting SBOT has duly seen an increase in both visibility and liquidity. The company is now trading near $9 a share having risen to as much as $12.87 in the last 12 months.
It’s obvious that investors can reap very good upside from companies that are newly uplisted. Companies like IEG Holdings Corp. (OTC: IEGH) therefore offer very good upside opportunity as they crossover into higher valuation and listing standards.
