SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A-Mark Precious Metals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMRK), a full-service precious metals trading company and an official distributor for all the major sovereign Mints, has engaged Liolios Group to lead a new strategic investor relations and financial communications campaign.

“Since we began trading on the NASDAQ Global Select Market in March, we’ve reported strong gross profits and profitability, demonstrating the unique nature of our trading platform where we can generate profits even when the precious metals markets are relatively calm,” said Greg Roberts, A-Mark’s president and CEO. “This performance also reveals how our value-added products help insulate us from short-term fluctuations in commodity prices.”

“Given our distinctive story and positive momentum, as well as many exciting developments planned for 2014,” continued Roberts, “we believe our shareholders would benefit from an experienced team of investor relations professionals to help us to communicate our story, navigate the capital markets and increase awareness of A-Mark in the financial community.”

Liolios Group will work closely with A-Mark management to develop and deploy a comprehensive capital markets strategy, which will include focused messaging and corporate positioning, strategic advisory, and introductions to investors and key influencers in the financial community. This will also include scheduling road shows and financial conferences for management over the next several months.
