SmallCapPower | November 3, 2017: Advantage Lithium Corp.

Advantage Lithium is led by CEO David Sidoo, who has proven he knows how to win. First, as a star football player that helped the University of British Columbia capture a Vanier Cup, which allowed him to play five seasons in the Canadian Football League. Then, as a successful businessman who was a top revenue generator at Yorkton Securities before becoming a founding shareholder of American Oil & Gas Inc. which was sold to Hess Corporation in 2010 for more US$630 million.
A significant catalyst for Advantage Lithium’s stock price has been increased investor interest in everything lithium since an announcement by China in late September of this year that the country is targeting to have five million electric vehicles on the road by 2020. Lithium is a key component in the batteries that power electric vehicles.
