RocketFuel Provides Details on Downgrading to OTC Expert Market

RocketFuel Blockchain Inc.
RocketFuel Blockchain Inc.

San Francisco, Jan. 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RocketFuel, Inc. (OTCQB: RKFL) (“RocketFuel” or the “Company”), a global provider of payment solutions via ACH bank transfers, Bitcoin, Stablecoins, and other cryptocurrencies, confirmed that its common stock, currently traded on the OTCQB market, is expected on January 17, 2024 to be downgraded to the OTC Expert Market.

Quotes in the Expert Market are “Unsolicited Only.” This means broker-dealers may use the Expert Market to meet their Best Execution responsibilities under FINRA Rules and publish unsolicited quotes representing Limit Orders from retail and institutional investors who are not affiliates or insiders of the company. Quotations in Expert Market securities are restricted from public viewing. Only broker-dealers and professional or sophisticated investors are permitted to view quotations in Expert Market securities.

Despite the restrictions on who can view quotations, the Expert Market does not impose restrictions on the ability of an investor to buy or sell a security. For further information see https://blog.otcmarkets.com/2021/03/25/understanding-the-expert-market.

The reason for the downgrade is the Company’s decision not to file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 (FQ2).

Peter Jensen, RocketFuel’s CEO, commented: “Since the launch of our first product, we have doubled our revenue each quarter, introduced new products, and processed more than 550,000 payment transaction for 125,000 shoppers and companies thanks to a constant increase in merchants and partners adopting our technology. However, with the recent default in an investor’s commitment for a sizeable investment, we have been forced to cut operating costs, including accounting and auditing expenses.

We believe that the value of a young software company is a function of its revenue, growth, profit, customers, and products and that our market cap is undervalued compared to similar privately based companies. Our objective is to maximize the value of our company to the benefits of our stakeholders and we have therefore decided to focus our expenditures and management time on continuing to grow these metrics.

“We are reiterating our revenues for FQ2 (ending September 30, 2023) at $765,000, substantially exceeding our previous quarter’s revenues of $235,459 and we expect to continue growing our company thanks to new merchants and partners. The change in trading status does not affect our daily operations--it’s business as usual. As we continue to grow, we expect to resume current filings and relist on the OTCQB Market.
