ALGAE DYNAMICS CORP ANNOUNCES OTCQB APPLICATION

TORONTO, CANADA / January 4, 2016 / ALGAE DYNAMICS CORP (OTC:ADYNF) (the "Company"), a development stage company focused on the commercialization of its proprietary BioSilo® cultivation system for the growth of algae strains for use in the food and health supplement industry, announced today that it has applied to list and trade the company's common shares on the OTCQB Marketplace.

The OTCQB is considered by the SEC as an "established public market" for the purpose of determining the public market price when registering securities for resale with the SEC. Many broker dealers will not trade or recommend OTC Pink stock. Because the OTCQB dramatically increases transparency, reporting standards, management certification and compliance requirements, the majority of broker dealers will trade stocks on the OTCQB. Historically this has resulted in greater liquidity and awareness for companies that reach the OTCQB tier.

Paul Ramsay, Chairman and President of the Company said, "We are pleased to announce our application to uplist to the OTCQB Marketplace. Since we have organized our reporting and governance activities to exceed the standards of OTCQB it only makes good sense to make this move for the benefit of our present and future shareholders. Our hope and intention is that the end result will be fuller recognition of shareholder value and improved market liquidity."
