JPX Global Inc. (OTC:JPEX) is pleased to announce today that the Depository Trust Company (DTC) has approved the Company's eligibility application for JPX Global Inc. The DTC, a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly-traded companies. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered "DTC eligible." This electronic method of clearing securities expedites the receipt of stock and cash, and, thus, accelerates the settlement process for investors and brokers. Jim Foran Chief Executive Officer of JPX Global stated, "DTC eligibility increases the efficiency and lowers the costs associated with buying and selling of our shares on the OTC Market. We are pleased to be able to be DTC eligible for the benefit of our current and future shareholders.
