CES Tower Shot

Nasdaq is proud to welcome CES Energy Solutions Corp. (OTC – Nasdaq Intl Designation: CESDF), a leading provider of technically advanced consumable chemical solutions, to the Nasdaq International Designation Program. Previously Canadian Energy Services & Technology, CES has significantly transformed its business since its initial public offering in March 2006, and has broadened its operational footprint across North America. The new company name avoids geographic reference, while incorporation of the CES acronym helps to maintain brand recognition. CES Energy Solutions joins the following other Canadian companies: Roxgold, Inc. (OTC – Nasdaq Intl Designation: ROGFF) and Nautilus Minerals, Inc. (OTC – Nasdaq Intl Designation: NUSMF).

The Nasdaq International Designation program is designed for non-U.S.-based companies that have level 1 American Depository Receipts or shares that trade in the over-the-counter (OTC) market. As a member of the program, CES Energy Solutions can now leverage additional visibility in the U.S. investment community and resources for investor relations support.

Commenting on their joining the Nasdaq International Designation, CES Energy Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Simons said:

“As the Corporation’s US operations continue to grow, so has the increase in interest from the US investment community. The Nasdaq International Designation will provide CES with access to Nasdaq’s investor marketing programs and investor relations services to increase the visibility of CES in the US capital markets.”

Launched in December 2015, the Nasdaq International Designation is home to a diverse range of companies in innovative industries across the globe.
