THORNTON, CO, March 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (ASTI), a developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art, lightweight and flexible thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solutions, announces that the company has engaged Fidelity Equity Partners, LLC, a boutique advisory firm, to assist with the company’s forward-looking plans to help drive shareholder value and deliver overall corporate advisory while heightening the company’s visibility and its messaging in the public, business, financial and investor communities.  Details about Fidelity Equity Partners, LLC can be found at: www.FidelityEquity.com

“The Fidelity Equity Partners team and their expansive network of collaborative industry professionals can offer significant resources to potentially accelerate Ascent’s growth strategy in the marketplace offering what we believe could be unprecedented shareholder value over a relatively short period of time,” says Ascent’s President & CEO, Victor Lee.  “We are absolutely thrilled with this new relationship and look forward to Fidelity Equity’s valuable advice, guidance and expertise,” continued Lee. 

“We count ourselves incredibly blessed and fortunate to be able to assist Ascent Solar.  And we believe they are positioned well from a technical perspective to possibly overtake key growing and profitable markets that would otherwise present significant barriers to entry for other companies based on Ascent’s IP and patents,” touted Izzy Lozada, one of the firm’s Co-Founders and Managing Principals at Fidelity Equity Partners.

“Everyone loves a great Cinderella story!” exclaimed Chad Davidson, Fidelity’s Co-Founder and Managing Principal.  “When we completed our due-diligence process and thought about where Ascent has been and where the company could go in the future, it just made sense for us to partner with them in what we believe has the potential to be an incredibly bright and rewarding future,” Davidson continued.
