The finalization of this audit lays a foundation for Xfuels to once again have its common shares freely traded in Canada, and for Xfuels to qualify to file as a fully reporting issuer with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
Further, Xfuels now expects to qualify for listing on OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB Venture Market in the United States.
“This is truly a watershed moment for our company,” said Xfuels CEO Mike McLaren. “We have invested over two years collecting supporting data on our past operations in order to satisfy PCAOB audit requirements. And now that we have successfully made it to the end of this process, we hope to improve our access to capital to support our growth.”
Xfuels’ 2019 and 2020 financial audit was completed by Borgers CPA PC (“Borgers”).

Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the Xfuels financial statements.
