Item 8.01 Other Events.


Resumption of trading on the OTCQB


On March 9, 2021, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) processed a Form 211 application relating to the initiation of priced quotations of the common stock of Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (the “Company”). FINRA’s processing of a Form 211 in no way constitutes FINRA’s approval of the Company’s common stock, the Company or the Company’s business and relates solely to the submitting broker-dealer’s obligation to comply with FINRA Rule 6432 and Rule 15c2-11 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, when quoting a security. As of March 10, 2021, the Company’s common stock was quoted on the OTC Link ATS. The Company has not yet obtained Depository Trust Company eligibility for the Company’s common stock but expects to do so in the near future. The Company’s common stock had been trading with limited liquidity on the grey market since November 21, 2018. Grey market stocks are not traded or quoted on an exchange or inter-dealer quotation system, but are reported by broker-dealers to their self-regulatory organization who, in turn, distribute the trade data to market data vendors and financial websites.


The information in this Item 8.01 is intended to be furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
