Dallas, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - February 17, 2021) - Astro Aerospace (OTCQB: ASDND) ("Company" or "Astro"), a global leader in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aerial vehicles and drones, announced today that it has appointed Kingswood Capital Markets ("Kingswood") in preparation to become a NASDAQ-listed company.
Kingswood Capital Markets is a global full-service middle market investment bank. Kingswood helps its clients grow through optimal capital raising structures. Its team of experienced investment professionals has collectively financed over $50 billion in public and private capital markets and provides strategic solutions to clients across a wide spectrum of industries.
Kingswood's expertise has been engaged to aid in both Astro's NASDAQ uplist and business growth, as part of the Company's endeavors to disrupt the current aerial vehicle industry with technology that is safe, user-friendly and economically and environmentally sustainable.
"Traffic congestion and pollution is rapidly increasing across our planet," stated Astro CEO Bruce Bent. "The UN predicts that global populations living in urban areas will increase to 68 percent by 2050, which means these problems will only become further amplified."
Astro's growth to a NASDAQ-listed company will be a huge accelerator of its vision of a world led by greener and more efficient drone transportation. Drones are currently an estimated $100 billion market (Source: Goldman Sachs Research).
Mr. Bent continued, "We appointed Kingswood for its proven capabilities and track record. A capital raise and anticipated NASDAQ listing will be monumental in enabling Astro to access greater capital markets and influential investors."
