Nasca, Evans' President and CEO. "We believe this move will avail us of a unique market trading structure, provide the benefits of the designated market maker platform, and benefit Evans and our shareholders through decreased volatility, added visibility in the financial markets, and increased liquidity of our common stock. Additionally, we believe our move to the NYSE Amex will further enhance our investor outreach as we continue to build shareholder value."
