True Leaf Medicine International Ltd. Secures DTC Eligibility in the United States

Vancouver, British Columbia – (October 16, 2017) – True Leaf Medicine International Ltd. (“True Leaf”) (CSE: MJ) (FSE: TLA) (OTCQB: TRLFF), a company involved in the hemp and cannabis-based product industry, has secured DTC eligibility for its common shares from The Depository Trust Company (DTC) effective October 10, 2017.

The DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), and manages the electronic clearing and settlement for the vast majority of publicly traded equities and other securities in the United States. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through DTC are considered “DTC eligible”. This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors.

"We are pleased to announce that we have obtained DTC eligibility,” commented True Leaf CEO Darcy Bomford. “Electronic trading is the standard in today's financial markets, and becoming DTC eligible simplifies the process of trading and exchanging our common shares. We continue to make positive steps to grow True Leaf, and we would like to thank our agent, VStock Transfer, for its guidance through this process,” he added. “We will continue to update our shareholders on our progress."
