VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire — Sprout AI Inc. (“Sprout AI” or the “Company”) (CSE: SPRT) is a technologically focused, sustainable vertical farming company that has developed scalable, AI-controlled aeroponic cultivation habitats. Sprout AI’s technology provides solutions to the ever-increasing complexities surrounding the current and future needs of a sustainable global food production and supply chain.
Following the Company’s Oct. 21, 2021, press release regarding the downward pressure of the Company’s stock price, the Company has since learned that its trading symbol “SPRT” (“CSE: SPRT”) is also used by an unrelated company on NASDAQ (NASDAQ: SPRT). The Company would like to confirm that it has no relation, or business dealings with Support.com, the owner of NASDAQ: SPRT.
The Company is aware that before Oct. 20, 2021, NASDAQ: SPRT undertook a substantial short position that resulted in the stock halting trading. The company wishes to confirm there is no association between CSE: SPRT and NASDAQ: SPRT.
The Company has made the request to the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) for permission to change CSE: SPRT ticker symbol to avoid incorrect association with NASDAQ: SPRT in the future. At the time of registration, the Company was not aware of any conflicts in the use of SPRT and had submitted three candidate trade symbols to the CSE for prior approval.
According to Chris Bolton, CEO of the Company, “We confirm that the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is reviewing the information provided concerning possible explanations for this unexpected sell-off including, but not limited to, the possible mistaken identity NASDAQ: SPRT. We have confirmed with IIROC that our major shareholder TheraCann International did not loan any of the Company shares to a third party. The Company also acknowledged that the previously filed Form 45 is no longer required. On behalf of our shareholders, we wish to thank IRROC for allowing us to stay focused on our business, while they continue to monitor this situation closely.”
