Time flies when you are working hard!
And that has certainly been the case at Endeavour Silver, as we reflect on our journey in capital markets and celebrate our 10th anniversary of listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
To commemorate the occasion, the Executive Management team joined Dan Dickson, CEO, on the podium while he rang The Closing Bell®. The event, which receives significant media coverage on Wall Street, is an act to honour the strength of our Company and the confidence of our shareholders.
“I was thrilled to celebrate this special milestone alongside our team,” said CEO Dan Dickson, who beamed as the bells rang, and then struck the gavel three times with all his might. “It is an unbelievable experience and an extraordinary feeling to stand on the same podium as many leaders and business visionaries. It is a day I will always cherish.”
Endeavour Silver officially listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2011, shortly after becoming a two-mine company with the acquisition of Bolanitos. Company founder, Bradford Cooke, saw the opportunity to leverage a wide range of advantages, including access to capital, improved branding and visibility, and increased liquidity. Since Endeavour first listed on the NYSE, the company has grown considerably.
Dan continued, “With the recent passing of Bradford Cooke, our Management team now carries a greater sense of duty to deliver on our objectives and carry forward Brad’s legacy. He would have enjoyed this momentous occasion tremendously. It was his recommendation to list on the NYSE and it has provided unparalleled visibility.”
Over the last few decades, ringing the opening and closing bells at the New York Stock Exchange has become a daily ritual on Wall Street. While Endeavour’s official listing anniversary was during the COVID lock-down, management postponed the event to celebrate such an honourable event in person.
