The migration to a more recognized stock exchange is a natural step that will open new opportunities for the shareholders and the company”.

Adam Kostyal, Senior Vice President at NASDAQ OMX, commented, “Shelton operates in a market with tremendous growth potential and will make an exciting addition to the Oil & Gas sector on our main market. Shelton Petroleum is one of many companies listed at alternative growth markets that have opted for a switch to NASDAQ OMX in order to take advantage of the unique investor exposure and strong liquidity that we offer”.
