Pineapple, Inc. (PNPL) Demonstrates Compliance with FINRA 211 Process to Initiate Public Quotations
The Company has demonstrated to FINRA compliance with Rule 6432 to initiate public quotations; Company submits application with OTC Markets for inclusion on OTCQB market tier
LOS ANGELES, CA, Feb. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PINEAPPLE, INC. (OTC Pink: PNPL) (the “Company” or “Pineapple”), a public company in the legal cannabis industry focussed on non-plant touching activities such as property rentals to licensed cannabis operators, hemp-derived CBD sales via online and in-store transactions, and cannabis business licensing and consulting services announces that its Form 15c2-11, commonly referred to as Form 211, submission to FINRA has demonstrated to FINRA compliance with Rule 6432, and therefore has met the requirements under that rule to initiate a quotation for PNPL. FINRA’s processing of a Form 211 in no way constitutes FINRA’s approval of the security, the issuer, or the issuer’s business and relates solely to the submitting broker-dealer’s obligation to comply with FINRA Rule 6432 and SEA Rule 15c2‐11 when quoting a security. The Company is currently in the process of taking the requisite steps to have its marketplace tier upgraded to OTCQB, along with the removal of the Caveat Emptor designation as currently reflected on the Company’s stock symbol.
Chairman Matthew Feinstein stated, “This has been a seven year process for me as a principal of this Company. I am overjoyed and elated about this development for Pineapple. We never gave up on ourselves and most importantly, our shareholders.”
CEO and President Shawn Credle added, “It’s a great day for Pineapple. I was brought here four years ago to get these kind of results for the shareholders and am extremely proud of our executive team that we were able to persevere and complete the task at hand. Moreover, I appreciate our shareholders for the continued faith while we crossed what many deemed to be a daunting hurdle.”
