The Pacific OTC (POTC) operates as an Over the Counter style information-bulletin board advertisement system and matching platform for equity and debt listees. POTC is niether the buyer or seller but an information provider who has provided some verification of the listees current jurisdictional standing. POTC has global access through licensed securities dealers entering inquiries into the system when they have customers who want to buy or sell shares in a company listed on one of the Pacific OTC tiers. Other securities dealers can see these bids and asks on their computer monitors and can directly contact the securities dealer to express interest in a possible transaction. When the trade comes about, the buying securities dealer then reports the transaction to the information provider which is the Pacific OTC. The Pacific OTC then updates its boards. To participate in POTC a broker or dealer needs only to register with Pacific OTC before they can enter an ad or receive information.
