VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 23, 2014) - LX Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LXV) (the "Company") announces that it will be changing its corporate name from "LX Ventures Inc." to "Mobio Technologies Inc.". Concurrently with the name change, the Company will begin trading as "MBO" on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and no longer be quoted under the symbol "LXV". The effective date of the name change remains subject to the approval of the Exchange.
Additionally, the Company is well advanced in its application process to be listed for trading on the OTCQX in the United States, with the intention to commence trading in the U.S. contemporaneous with the change of the Company's name to Mobio Technologies later this month.
"Changing the Company's name to Mobio Technologies is a practical step given that the Mobio social media platform is our primary focus" commented Mike Edwards, CEO of the Company. "As we are on the cusp of introducing product enhancements such as video capabilities and accelerating the 'Be Social. Get Paid' revenue sharing platform, making the Mobio brand synonymous with our corporate identity provides the market clarity on what we're all about. Additionally, obtaining a quotation for the Company's shares in the United States, where social media platforms are best understood and valued, will provide a broader audience within the investing community than the Company has previously had. We expect these changes will set the stage for expanded exposure as we unfold the next stage of our evolution."
