NEW YORK, May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OTC Markets Group Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM), operator of regulated markets for trading 12,000 U.S. and international securities, today announced Neometals Ltd. (ASX: NMT; OTCQX: NMTAY), a sustainable processing technology company that recycles and recovers critical materials from high value waste streams, has qualified to trade on the OTCQX® Best Market under the symbol “NMTAY.”

Neometals Ltd. upgraded to OTCQX from the Pink® market. U.S. investors can find current financial disclosure and Real-Time Level 2 quotes for the company on

Upgrading to the OTCQX Market is an important step for companies seeking to provide transparent trading for their U.S. investors. For companies listed on a qualified international exchange, streamlined market standards enable them to utilize their home market reporting to make their information available in the U.S. To qualify for OTCQX, companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance and demonstrate compliance with applicable securities laws.

Neometals Managing Director Chris Reed said:

“We are pleased to begin trading on the top tier of OTC Markets - OTCQX. The U.S. trading upgrade reflects a desire to provide additional visibility and gain greater market exposure and liquidity. Additionally, the OTCQX quotation will increase the number of US states to 40 that allow investors and equity analysts to recommend Neometals’ American Depositary Receipts (1:10 ASX ORD/ ADR ratio).

With Neometals’ strategy to enable critical material production from waste streams, and the increasing importance being placed on US domestic critical material supply resilience, the timing bodes well to broaden the audience to our sustainable battery and precious materials opportunities”.

Rimon Law acted as the company’s OTCQX sponsor.
