Key compliance data points include:

  • Active and historical stock promotion data;
  • Penny stock status;
  • OTC graduate data;
  • Micro cap status;
  • Security name change history;
  • Current and former shell status; and
  • Stock split history.

Delivered in pipe-delimited format, twice daily at 5:00 am (ET) and 7:00 pm (ET), the file is licensed at an enterprise level designed for broker-dealers, AML, compliance and risk management professionals looking to more effectively right-size small cap listed equity compliance.
