VALLEY CITY, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 -- Shiloh Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHLO), a leading supplier providing lightweighting and noise and vibration solutions to the automotive, commercial vehicle and other industrial markets, today announced that effective Jan. 2, 2014, the company's common stock has been upgraded to be listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market, the highest of the three market tiers at NASDAQ. Shiloh was selected for the improved listing because the company met the highest quantitative and qualitative standards.
Ramzi Hermiz, president and chief executive officer of Shiloh Industries, Inc., said, "this transition reflects the company's commitment to maintain solid corporate governance and a dedicated leadership team that is focused on continuous improvement."
"Shiloh is an industry leader in lightweighting and NVH solutions," added Hermiz. "Being selected to this prestigious NASDAQ tier is proof that our continued focus on technology and innovation is paying dividends. We remain committed to building long-term value for our shareholders by acting with purpose and speed to achieve sustainable, global, profitable growth and world-class results."
NASDAQ-listed companies are classified under three listing tiers: NASDAQ Global Select Market, NASDAQ Global Market and NASDAQ Capital Market. Shiloh common shares previously traded on the NASDAQ Capital Market and, following the transfer to the NASDAQ Global Select Market, will retain the ticker symbol SHLO.
"There are numerous requirements to be selected to the NASDAQ Global Select Market, some of which include market capitalization, revenue growth and continued profitability," said Thomas Dugan, vice president finance and treasurer of Shiloh Industries, Inc. "Our continued strong financial performance, most recently reflected in our latest fourth quarter and fiscal 2013 filing, was one of the key catalysts for the upgraded listing."
