Commenting on Inclusion in S&P/ASX 300 Index, President and CEO, Mr. Henri Tausch noted:
“We are pleased that 5EA has been selected for inclusion in the S&P/ASX 300 index. This inclusion places us in the company of the largest 300 securities on the ASX, which will increase our exposure to investors and potentially, liquidity in our stock with incremental buy demand. We continue to pursue and are well positioned for future inclusions in other U.S. and international indexes.”
