(NASDAQ: HUGE) (CSE: HUGE) (FRA: 0K9) (“FSD Pharma” or the “Company”) announced that its Class B Subordinate Voting Shares (the “Shares”) will commence trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol ‘HUGE’ today, January 9, 2020. The Company’s Class B Subordinate Voting Shares will continue to trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the symbol ‘HUGE’.
“The listing of our shares on the Nasdaq Capital Market is a momentous moment and represents a paradigm shift in the outlook of FSD Pharma,” said Dr. Raza Bokhari. “Doing so offers us an opportunity to expand awareness of the company’s specialty pharmaceutical lead asset, a micronized formulation of palmitolylethonalamide (micro-PEA), which by targeting the CB2 receptor of the endocannabinoid system of the human body, may help address the opioid crisis by developing opioid-sparing, FDA-approved prescription drugs. A NASDAQ listing also elevates our corporate profile to institutional investors.”
Dr. Bokhari will present at Biotech Showcase 2020 in San Francisco on Monday, January 13, 2020 at 3:30 pm PT where he will provide an overview of the Company, as well as recent strides made to transform FSD Pharma into a specialty pharmaceutical R&D company.
