San Antonio-based XPEL, makers of window and paint protection film and installation accessories, among other related products, celebrated its recent listing on the Nasdaq stock exchange with its president and CEO, Ryan Pape, ringing the Nasdaq closing bell on Wednesday, July 31.
“We’re excited to celebrate our recent listing on Nasdaq by ringing the Closing Bell,” Pape said. “I’d like to thank the many people in our organization who worked hard to make our Nasdaq listing a reality and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership on this dynamic trading platform.”
In his remarks that day, Pape said Nasdaq was the exchange XPEL wanted to list on in the U.S.
“It’s one of the most exciting things to happen in the history of the company,” Pape said. “I think what a lot of people don’t know is we’ve been a public company for 15 years—that’s not obvious to a lot of people. But this is still really special.”
XPEL Inc.’s common stock began trading on the Nasdaq on Friday, July 19, under the symbol XPEL. At the same time, XPEL Inc.’s symbol on the Toronto Venture exchange has been changed to XPEL.U.
