Evolution's Series A preferred stock trades on the NYSE MKT (previously known as the Amex, or American Stock Exchange) under the symbol EPM.PR.A. However, since the securities have no stated maturity date, investors seeking liquidity will be limited to selling their shares in the secondary market and an active trading market for the shares may not develop for them.
