“We are excited and proud to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Diemer, a highly influential leader in the entertainment and media world,” said Legible CEO Kaleeg Hainsworth. “Peter brings vast experience and proven leadership in the combined areas of sales, music and technology. His expertise, entrepreneurial drive and well-honed skills will help our management team to quickly grow Legible’s user base in 2023.”


DTC Eligibility

In addition, Legible is pleased to announce that the Company has received approval from the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) that its common shares are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through DTC in the United States. The Company has been issued Cusip 52475E 106. DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded securities in the United States. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through DTC are considered “DTC eligible”. With DTC eligibility, existing Legible investors based in the United States can now benefit from potentially greater liquidity and faster execution speeds. In addition, DTC eligibility also allows for new investors to efficiently trade the Company’s common shares, whereas they may have been restricted in the past, simplifying the process of trading common shares of the Company in the United States and allowing the Company to access a larger pool of investors. This electronic method enables a security to be traded over a much wider range of brokerage firms. The Company’s shares are currently quoted on the OTC Market under the trading symbol LEBGF and will not change as part of this process.


“DTC eligibility is an important step for Legible in our ongoing efforts to introduce our Company to a broader audience of potential investors,” Hainsworth stated.
