Ecology and Environment Inc to Move Common Stock Listing to NASDAQ
The board of directors of Ecology and Environment Inc has given the go-ahead for company’s common stock listing to be moved from the American Stock Exchange (AMEX) to the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC. As from Monday 8 September, Ecology and Environment Inc will trade on NASDAQ under the symbol “EEI”.
Founded in 1970 as an environmental consulting firm, Ecology and Environment Inc has been at the forefront of finding innovative solutions to a wide variety of environmental and human health issues on a global scale. The company’s record of more than 35,000 successful projects in 83 countries is testimony that, as stated in its philosophy and mission: “At the end of the day, we know that the world is a better place because of what we do.”
In a world that is seemingly following a path of self-destruction, there are a growing number of companies and organizations that are mindful of their social responsibilities and are determined to ensure that their carbon footprint has minimal impact on the earth’s environment. Ecology and Environment Inc can assist them in achieving their goals in this regard. They are committed to finding solutions to deal effectively with issues related to the conflict between development and the environment, while promoting the concept of sustainability in a holistic manner.
Rapidly advancing technology has resulted in communication and a sharing of expertise between increasing numbers of scientists and specialists in many disciplines on a global scale. This in turn allows Ecology and Environment Inc to offer solutions to clients on a global scale, which has been one of the motivating factors behind the move from AMEX to NASDAQ. In a statement on the company’s website, President and CEO of Ecology and Environment Inc, Kevin Neumaier, expressed his confidence that investors will welcome the superior, global trading platform that NASDAQ will provide. He went on to say that “NASDAQ’s electronic multiple market maker structure offers our company better exposure and liquidity, and our investors stand to benefit by fast execution and the lowest cost per trade.”
