VCI Global Limited Announces Application for Dual Listing on Upstream

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VCI Global Limited (NASDAQ: VCIG) (“VCI Global”, or the “Company”) today announced that it has begun the application process to dual list its shares on Upstream, the revolutionary trading app for digital securities and NFTs powered by Horizon Fintex (“Horizon”) and MERJ Exchange Limited (“MERJ”).

The planned dual listing on Upstream is designed to provide VCI Global the opportunity to access a global, digital-first investor base that can trade using USDC digital currency along with credit, debit, PayPal, and USD, unlocking liquidity and enhancing price discovery while globalizing the opportunity to invest in NASDAQ-listed VCI Global.

Commenting on the application to list on Upstream Dato’ Victor Hoo, Chairman and Group Director of VCI Global, said, “Building shareholder value and increasing our liquidity is always a high priority for us as a Company. We believe a dual listing on Upstream will act as an excellent vehicle to reach an untapped international market of potential new shareholders.”

Approval to be listed on Upstream is subject to acceptance by MERJ. However, as an existing NASDAQ issuer, VCI Global may be eligible for an expedited listing process.
