ESSA Pharma Announces New Listing on the TSX Venture Exchange Concurrent with Voluntary Delisting from the TSX
TSX VENTURE LISTING EXPECTED TO IMPROVE OPERATING EFFICIENCY, LOWER COSTS AND PROVIDE ENHANCED FINANCING FLEXIBILITY COMPANY'S SHARES TO REMAIN LISTED ON NASDAQ CAPITAL MARKET VANCOUVER and HOUSTON, Nov. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - ESSA Pharma Inc. (TSX: EPI; NASDAQ: EPIX) ("ESSA" or the "Company"), a pre-clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel small molecule drugs for the treatment of prostate cancer, today announced that the Company is listing its common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV). ESSA expects that its common shares will begin trading under symbol "EPI" on the TSXV on or about November 27, 2017. Concurrently, the Company has applied for the voluntary delisting of its common shares, currently listed under symbol "EPI",  from the Toronto Stock Exchange TSX, which is currently anticipated to occur on or about November 25, 2017. ESSA's common shares will continue to be listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under symbol "EPIX". "Following a thorough evaluation, ESSA's  board of directors determined that it was in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders to list the Company's common shares on the TSXV, while concurrently voluntarily delisting from the TSX," said Dr. David R. Parkinson, President and Chief Executive Officer of ESSA. "We believe that a listing on the TSXV will allow for improved operating efficiency, lower costs and enhanced financing flexibility for the Company, while providing shareholders continued liquidity on a recognized stock exchange. ESSA is not required to seek shareholder approval for the delisting of its common shares from the TSX, as an acceptable alternative market will exist for the common shares on or about the anticipated delisting date. About ESSA Pharma Inc. ESSA is a preclinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing novel and proprietary therapies for the treatment of CRPC in patients whose disease is progressing despite treatment with current therapies. ESSA believes that its proprietary compounds can significantly expand the interval of time in which patients suffering from CRPC can benefit from hormone-based therapies, by disrupting the AR signaling pathway that drives prostate cancer growth and by preventing AR transcriptional activity by binding selectively to the NTD of the AR.  A functional NTD is essential for transactivation of the AR. In preclinical studies, blocking the NTD has demonstrated the capability to overcome the known AR-dependent mechanisms of CRPC.  ESSA was founded in 2009.

Triple Alpha's ICO Makes High-yield Stock Investing Available to Everyone
MOSCOW, November 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Triple Alpha, which is built on unique trading algorithms previously available only to hedge fund clients, today announced an ICO and the creation of a capital fund. An algorithm for picking the best stocks combined with a unique market-neutral strategy will let investors receive returns significantly higher than the market not only when the market is growing steadily, but also during financial crises.      (Logo: http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/605892/Triple_Alpha_Logo.jpg ) Thanks to the use of an exchange-traded fund (ETF), investors around the world will be able to access Triple Alpha algorithms, regardless of the amount they are going to invest. Furthermore, investors will receive returns far greater than those available from fixed-income instruments - eurobonds or treasuries. "Asset management is one of the biggest industries in the global economy, with assets under management totaling $64 trillion. Moreover, hedge funds, which are currently the most profitable 'traditional' investment products, have obvious shortcomings. Apart from millions of dollars of the minimum required investment, there is a complete lack of transparency when it comes to forming and managing the investment portfolio. Also hedge fund fees can reach up to 30%. These factors severely limit the potential audience for these financial products. Triple Alpha intends to eliminate the main obstacles that prevent private investors anywhere from accessing the asset management industry. The Triple Alpha fund will make the best investing technologies broadly available, which rely on excellent machine learning algorithms and big data analytics. The extremely high returns on investments in crypto-assets are subject to the huge volatility of the nascent market while existing instruments for investing in stocks have serious limitations and poor transparency. Triple Alpha is revolutionizing the international asset management market, creating a niche with a small minimum investment (from $100) and returns far above 10% per annum," said Ilya Filippov, Triple Alpha's co-founder, and CEO. Due to legal requirements, a hedge fund is unable to have the broad circle of investors envisioned by Triple Alpha. As part of the ICO, which will begin December 17, 2018, Triple Alpha plans to issue TRIA infrastructure tokens for a total of $10 million. The company's pre-ICO begins on November 17, 2017. The proceeds will be used to establish and structure the ETF, conduct marketing, gather data for additional machine learning, and improve the trading algorithm. TRIA will be available to purchase using ETH, BTC, DASH, or LTC on Triple Alpha's  official website. The fund's net cash flow will be used to buy tokens on a first-come, first-served basis. The token's issue price will be fixed at $2.

Babson Professor Launches Entrepreneur ETF, Touts New "Entrepreneur Factor"
WELLESLEY, Mass., Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Babson College Professor Joel Shulman has launched an "Entrepreneur 30" Exchange Traded Fund (ETF).  His innovative ETF holds a basket of the 30 largest Entrepreneur-led publicly-traded companies. The ETF was launched by Shulman, a professor at Babson College the No. 1 school for entrepreneurship, at the leading stock exchange (NYSE), on the first day of Global Entrepreneur Week with a newly released Institutional Investor publication.  An afternoon agenda at the New York Stock Exchange included presentations by Babson College alumni, Bruce Herring '87 (former CIO of Fidelity), Rusty Vanneman '87 (CIO at CLS), Tom Lydon '82 (ETF Trend Founder) and Steven Cutler MBA'61  (Founder of Essex Investments) as well as Scott Stone '88 (CIO, Pentegra).  The presentations and panel discussions helped set the stage of ETF trends before culminating with an Entrepreneur 30 Closing Bell Celebration. "Over the past 12 years not only has the Entrepreneur Factor been significant, it has been, by far, the most significant Factor in helping explain excess returns over the peer benchmark with his research as well as actual performance data," says Shulman. Shulman notes that his newest Entrepreneur 30 ETF, "employs proprietary research that creates a new Factor utilizing Management attributes."  He claims, "the Entrepreneur Factor helps explain excess returns over and above other well-known Factors such as Size, Value, Momentum and Industry sectors." He believes that Investment Allocation experts who currently manage broad investment strategies based on Value, Growth, Size, Momentum and Industry Sectors, will soon realize benefits of this approach and will begin employing strategies and allocation models based on the new Entrepreneur Factor. EntrepreneurShares, Shulman's investment management firm, currently applies their Entrepreneur Factor across varying investment strategies including Market Cap, Industry Sector and Country.  The money management firm currently runs three mutual funds, one ETF and many separately managed accounts.  The historical performance among mutual funds and separately managed accounts has been recognized by Pension & Investments and The Wall Street Journal as exceptional, for varying time periods.    The presentation and ETF launch coincides with the release of an Institutional Investor publication Leadership Matters: Crafting a Smart Beta Portfolio with a Founder-CEO Twist that details just one of Entrepreneurshares' Management attributes.  Other Babson community members that helped make the event possible included: Greg Faulkner  MBA'86 Alice Thompson '10 Jared Shulman  '12 Alissa Shulman, '14 Aleksandar Antelj '17 Mihai Prisacariu '17 Annie Arthur '18 David Zamarin '19 Lisa Couture MBA '12 About Global Entrepreneurship Week The ETF launch was part of Babson's Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2017 (November 9-16) events and activities.
