Greenwave to Begin Trading Under Ticker “GWAV”
The Company has generated record revenue in the first quarter of 2022 and is preparing its formal application to uplist to a national exchange
March 25, 2022
Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc. ("Greenwave" or the "Company") (OTCPink:GWAV) is pleased to report that it will begin trading under the ticker “GWAV” at market open on March 25, 2022. Greenwave, through its subsidiary Empire Services, Inc. (“Empire”), currently operates 11 metal scrap facilities in Virginia and North Carolina.
Driven by inflationary pressures, depleted inventories, and significant global demand in what many consider to be a “commodities super cycle,” prices for many metal products were already on the rise going into 2022. The Russia-Ukraine conflict has only accelerated this trend, with prices for copper hitting an all-time high of $4.95 per pound on the Comex market on March 4, 2022 and scrap steel prices increasing approximately 20% over the past month.
There continues to be robust global demand for steel and the recently enacted U.S. infrastructure bill is expected to increase domestic steel demand by 3-4 million metric tons per year. Further, if Russia’s exports of iron ore are blocked or face heavy tariffs, analysts predict it could significantly tighten supplies while global inventories remain at historic lows.
“In this current inflationary cycle, we believe Greenwave represents a pure-play for investors looking for exposure to rising commodity prices,” stated Danny Meeks, Chief Executive Officer of Greenwave. “Greenwave has already generated record revenues in the first quarter of 2022 with 6 days left in the quarter and we believe the Company is strongly positioned for continued growth.”
Empire generated approximately $27.5 million in revenue in fiscal year 2021. Greenwave expects to submit its application to uplist to NASDAQ shortly after filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K, with the goal of listing on a national exchange by June 2022.
