VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA – APRIL 16, 2021 – Mission Ready Solutions Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: MRS) (OTCQX: MSNVF) is pleased to announce that its common shares (“Shares”) are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) in the United States. The Company’s Shares are quoted in the United States on the OTCQX Best Market (“OTCQX”) under the symbol “MSNVF.”
DTC is a subsidiary of The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), a U.S. company that manages electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies.

Mission Ready’s Shares are now eligible to be distributed, settled and serviced through DTC’s automated processes which will facilitate the trading of the Company’s Shares through a much wider selection of brokerage firms.
“We are pleased to have obtained DTC eligibility which will provide a reliable, cost-efficient, and timely method of trading of Mission Ready’s Shares for current and prospective U.S. investors and brokerage firms,” said Terry Nixon, Mission Ready’s Chief Compliance Officer. “We believe that DTC eligibility will further enhance our trading liquidity and broaden our investor base in the U.S. marketplace. We have made it a focus to expand our investor awareness efforts throughout North America while we look to share our vision with a growing shareholder base globally.”
Mission Ready’s Shares will continue to trade under the symbol “MSNVF” on the OTCQX and under the symbol “MRS” on the TSX Venture Exchange.
