JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / November 22, 2023 / ParkerVision, Inc. (OTCQB:PRKR) (the "Company") has received a request from OTC Markets Group Inc. ("OTC Markets") to issue a statement about recent promotional activity concerning the Company and its common shares.
On November 20, 2023, OTC Markets notified the Company of certain promotional material encouraging investors to trade the Company's common stock. The material was in the form of an email communication distributed by ThePennyStockPros.com on November 20, 2023, and includes false and misleading statements regarding receipt of media support and payments from the Company, or parties under contract with the Company, to publish and/or distribute advertisements on behalf of the Company. The Company had no knowledge of the promotional material until notified by OTC Markets Issuer Compliance Team. The Company and/or its officers were not involved, directly or indirectly, with the creation, distribution, or payment of the promotional material. The Company is unable to determine if this material had any impact on the trading activity of the Company's common stock.
As required by the OTC Markets Promotion Policy the Company, after inquiry of management, its officers, directors, any controlling shareholders (defined as shareholders owning 10% or more of the Company's securities), and its service providers, confirms the aforementioned parties have not, directly or indirectly, been involved in any way with the creation, distribution, or payment of promotional materials related to the Company and its common stock.
The Company approves the activities and content of all public relations and investor relations activities carried out by our inhouse and contracted staff, and in doing so, will continue to comply with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), FINRA and OTC Market guidelines.

These providers include Intro-Act, engaged to provide artificial intelligence (AI) supported shareholder awareness and corporate access services from June 2021 through March 2023, and Anthony Vignieri, engaged on a contract basis since June 2020 as the Company's communications director.
As required by the OTC Markets Promotion Policy the Company, after inquiry of management, the directors, control persons, and its service providers, has determined that none of the Company, its officers, directors, any controlling shareholders, or any service providers have sold or purchased the Company's securities within the past 90 days, except as disclosed in the Company's public filings available on EDGAR or through the Company's website.
The OTC Markets, as part of its OTC Markets Promotion Policy, has requested that the Company state whether it has issued any shares or convertible instruments allowing conversion into equity securities at prices constituting a discount to the current market price at the time of issuance.
