ORLANDO, FL (July 20, 2020) – IZEA Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: IZEA), operator of IZEAx®, the premier online marketplace connecting brands and publishers with influential content creators, today announced that it has received a response to its formal demand letter to the Tradegate Stock Exchange in Germany (“Tradegate”) requesting that Tradegate delist the corporation’s common stock. IZEA did not apply to be listed on Tradegate, nor did the corporation authorize the listing of its shares on the German exchange. IZEA has not engaged any broker or specialist to act as a market maker for IZEA’s common stock in Germany or elsewhere in the EU, nor does it wish to be traded on any exchange other than NASDAQ.
“Our corporation has invested significant resources to be listed on NASDAQ. We abide by the rules and regulations of the market and comply with U.S. securities laws,” said Ted Murphy, Founder and CEO of IZEA. “Our investors seek those regulatory protections and assurances, and we constantly seek to protect our shareholders against the impacts of equity trading in international markets not approved by the corporation.”
Investors looking to purchase shares of IZEA should only purchase them through market markers on the NASDAQ public markets.
