Overland Park, Kansas – September 6, 2011 – Guardian 8 Holdings (OTC:BB – GRDH) (www.guardian8.com ) announced today that the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority has cleared its common stock for quotation on the OTC Bulletin Board, effective August 5, 2011. The stock will trade under the symbol GRDH on the OTC:BB and OTC:QB.
Developer of the G8 Personal Defense Device – Guardian 8 Holdings expects its stock to begin trading on or before September 15, and anticipates marketing and selling their revolutionary new product, the G8 Personal Defense Devices, in Q4 of 2011.
“We believe the G8 Personal Defense Device is light years ahead of any single source personal defense product available today because of the multiple features available, and expect demand to be significant,” said Steve Cochennet, President of Guardian 8 Holdings. “We believe that the added credibility of our public status could help us generate higher levels of interest from retail investors and eventually, institutions that have benefited from other successful stocks and companies in our expanding sector.”
“Given the success of other single-function security products, our team believes that the market potential for the G8 Personal Defense Device exceeds that of any competitor,” added Loren Moll, Executive Committee Chairman of Guardian 8 Holdings.
Both the OTCQB and Bulletin Board require companies to be fully reporting with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Again, the company anticipates that the stock could begin trading shares in the open market by mid-September of 2011.
