DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / April 20, 2021 / Envela Corporation (NYSE American:ELA) ("Envela" or the "Company") has appointed Gateway Group, a leading strategic financial communications and capital markets advisory firm, to manage its expanded investor relations program initiatives, including providing corporate messaging and other consulting services to the Company.
Gateway will work closely with Envela management to develop and deploy a comprehensive outreach and communications program. Activities will include refining overall company and investment-oriented messaging and corporate positioning, strategic advisory services, and introductions to institutional investors, sell-side analysts, and other key influencers in the financial community. Gateway will also assist in organizing roadshows and securing invitations to select financial conferences and events, including its annual Gateway Conference.
"2020 was a banner year for Envela, reflected by our strong financial performance, including a 39% increase in revenue to a record $113.9 million and 170% increase in net income to a record $6.4 million," said John Loftus, Chairman and CEO of Envela. "Our business continues to benefit from robust growth vectors, including demand for precious metal-related products and electronics recycling. More specifically, our growing ECHG subsidiary, a provider of electronics reuse and recycling services, is well positioned to further capitalize on the accelerating sustainability trends and the increasing supply of used electronic products, which are contributing to one of the fastest-growing waste streams globally."
"As a recommerce leader, Envela is squarely aligned with Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) mandates and the burgeoning interest from retail and institutional investors," added Loftus. "For these reasons, we believe the Envela story would be well received through an increased outreach and communications program. Our partnership with Gateway will allow us to engage with a broader audience of investors, ensuring that our message is being understood and appreciated. We look forward to collaborating with the Gateway team over the coming months to refine our investment thesis and leverage their capital markets network to raise Envela's profile."
