GTEC to become Avant Brands, and list on TSX
Published on July 8, 2021 by David Wylie
The Kelowna company behind the popular BLK MKT and Tenzo brands is rebranding from GTEC to Avant Brands.
It has also received approval to list on the TSX, starting July 12—the trading symbols are “AVNT” and “AVNT.W,” respectively.
“Graduating to the TSX highlights our growth and ability to execute. Since 2017, we have demonstrated our commitment to providing industry-leading, innovative products while never compromising the quality or consistency that we are known for,” says Norton Singhavon, Founder and CEO of the Company.
The TSX is the largest and most senior exchange in Canada, and the third largest in North America after the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Nasdaq.
“We believe that a TSX listing recognizes our strong commitment to corporate governance and provides us with exposure to a broad new investor base that will enhance the liquidity of our common shares and warrants.”
GTEC says it expects to rebrand to Avant Brands at market open on July 12.
Its new website will be avantbrands.ca.
Its headquarters is in Kelowna, and it has operations elsewhere in BC, as well as in Alberta and Ontario.
GTEC also has medical cannabis brand, GreenTec.
