262 Days ago

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Mar 21, 2016) - NXT Energy Solutions Inc. ("NXT Energy" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SFD)(OTCQB:NSFDF) is pleased to announce that it has been approved for listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") effective Tuesday, March 22, 2016. The Company is graduating from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") to the TSX and trading of the Company's common shares will commence tomorrow under the symbol SFD. NXT Energy's Market Maker will be RBC Capital Markets.

NXT Energy currently has a total of 53,306,109 common shares issued and outstanding, and also trades on the OTC QB Exchange in the United States.

George Liszicasz, President & CEO of the Company noted, "We are proud to have now graduated to the TSX, the premiere stock exchange in Canada. This was possible based on NXT Energy achieving a record year in 2015, in which we substantially expanded the size of aerial survey projects we have undertaken for our exploration clients. We are pleased to report that the Company is continuing its market penetration into Africa, Asia and Latin America. Moreover, we expect that the TSX Listing will allow investment eligibility with a much broader range of institutional investors, which can lead to enhanced trading volumes and the resultant share liquidity."

The Company also advises that it intends to SEDAR file its financial results for the recent fiscal year-ended December 31, 2015 on or before April 26, 2016.
