SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Merriman Capital, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Merriman Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: MERR), today announced that it will serve as the Principal American Liaison (PAL) for Primary Petroleum Corporation (TSXV: PIE; OTCQX: PETEF) as it lists on OTCQX®.


Primary Petroleum is a junior oil and gas company engaged in exploration and development activities in Montana and Alberta.  The Company announced today that it is now trading on the OTC market's highest tier, OTCQX®.

Spencer Grimes, Merriman Capital Managing Director, said: "With assets in the United States, it is natural for Primary Petroleum to increase its exposure to U.S. investors. Listing on the OTCQX today does exactly that. We are excited to be their partner in this effort."

"As a Canadian listed company with the majority of its assets in the Alberta Basin Bakken in Western Montana, along with a growing number of U.S. shareholders, we are looking forward to list our shares on the prestigious OTCQX platform in tandem with Merriman's expertise as our PAL.  With OTCQX, Primary Petroleum can provide U.S. investors with improved liquidity, superior information, transparency, and easy access through their U.S. regulated broker-dealers," states Mike Marrandino, President & CEO of Primary Petroleum.
