Vancouver, British Columbia – June 21, 2022: TUT Fitness Group Inc. (TSX-V:GYM) (OTC: GYMFF) (Frankfurt: 7PG) (“TUT” or “the Company”), a Vancouver-based Canadian manufacturer of high-performance and affordable fitness products, is pleased to announce that its common shares are now trading on the OTCQB Venture Market (the “OTCQB”) under the symbol “GYMFF” as of April 1, 2022, and that it has received confirmation from the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) that its common shares are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through DTC in the United States. The Company will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “GYM” and on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol “7PG”.

The OTCQB Venture Market

The OTCQB Venture Market is the premier marketplace for entrepreneurial and development stage US and international companies committed to providing a high-quality trading and information experience for their US investors. To be eligible, companies must be current in their financial reporting, pass a minimum bid price test, and undergo an annual company verification and management certification process. The OTCQB quality standards provide a strong baseline of transparency, as well as the technology and regulation to improve the information and trading experience for investors.

Trading on this US marketplace provides TUT’s current and future US-based investors greater access to data, home country disclosure, ease of trading, and transparency.

“We are pleased to announce that we have met all requirements and have been accepted by OTC Markets to up-list from the Pink Sheet to the OTCQB tier for trading,” said TUT CEO Rob Smith. “Listing on the OTCQB is another important milestone for the Company and we are confident the uplisting will bring added value to our shareholders.”

DTC Eligibility

The Depository Trust Company manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. 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 and brokers, enabling the stock to be traded over a much wider selection of brokerage firms.

Obtaining DTC eligibility represents the Company’s commitment to increasing visibility and accessibility for all its shareholders in the United States. It enables TUT to expand its reach to a larger portion of the global investment community while providing a more efficient and seamless trading process.
