At that time, the company's shares will begin trading on the OTCQB Marketplace and will continue to trade under the symbol WEST.

CBD Managing Director & CEO, Gerry McGowan said, "We are and continue to be fully committed to the merger with Westinghouse Solar. Our collaborative efforts over the past few months, in our Italian commercial project joint venture, our EPC project in New Jersey, and the distribution of modules through Harvey Norman in Australia, should attest to our unwavering dedication to the proposed merger. CBD has already applied for listing on the NASDAQ stock exchange and, if approved, the merged entity will be listed on NASDAQ. We fully support Westinghouse Solar's decision."
