What is OTCBB?
Over the Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB) is a quotation service for Over the Counter (OTC) stocks. The OTCBB market functions similar to a stock exchange but key differences create a vastly different environment from an exchange. OTCBB stocks are very popular, investors exchange an average of over $100 Million US Dollar daily.
The OTCBB market is run by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). The market does not have listing requirements for a stock, only eligibility requirements. For example the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) requires a minimum value for share price, income, and total assets. If any of these items falls below a threshold value then a company can be delisted and removed from NYSE. The OTCBB only requires the company to file basic regulatory filings which do not require an audit committee.
The lower requirements of the OTCBB quotation service is one of the primary attractions. Multi-national corporations can save money because of relaxed regulatory filing requirements. Younger companies that do not meet NYSE eligibility requirements can start as OTCBB companies and sell equity to fund the business. Some of the largest companies today started as OTCBB companies many years ago such as Walmart, Home Depot, and Berkshire Hathaway. Investors endlessly search these young companies in the hopes of finding the next breakout stock that flies to the moon.
