Barry Henthorn stated “We are pleased that Baristas Coffee Company has been upgraded and that we have been able to complete and file all of our Financial and Disclosure reports required to gain the OTC Markets highest designation under the PINK tier. We will now await review by council and anticipate an Attorney Letter covering all relevant information to be filed shortly. At that time OTC Markets will determine if the information submitted meets all requirements to upgrade BCCI to its highest segmentation under the PINK tier of “Current Information.”
All filings will now be reviewed by council and if accepted an “Attorney Letter with Respect to Current Information” will be submitted which if accepted by OTC Markets will likely allow the additional upgrade to occur.
