Rodrigo Barbosa, President and CEO of Aura, commented, “Aura has undergone transformational change over the last five years resulting in sustainable growth, one of the highest dividend yields in the gold sector and a strong trajectory for the future. We have also broadened our exposure across key markets, ranking #1 for two straight years on the TSX30, being the first listed gold Company in Brazil with over 45,000 shareholders, and now adding the U.S. to our market strategy to unlock further value. Upgrading to the OTCQX is an important step in our evolution and will provide American investors with greater accessibility to trading our common shares while giving Aura a more robust potential shareholder and capital base.”
