ATLANTA, Dec. 7, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UnderSea Recovery Corporation ("UnderSea") (Pink Sheets:UNDR) (formerly LGAL) is pleased to announce its new trading symbol of UNDR. The new symbol was issued late last week by FINRA and is more descriptive of UnderSea's corporate name.
In making this announcement, Herbert C. Leeming, UnderSea's CEO, stated: "We are delighted to finally secure our new trading symbol. We had applied for UNSR to become our trading symbol, but FINRA reported a conflict with the symbol UNSR which precluded its issuance to us. However, we are fine with UNDR and its clear relationship to our corporate name. The new symbol will alleviate any market confusion from our prior symbol of LGAL which was related to our old corporate name and will give us greater and clearer market identification which was much needed. Moreover, this long-awaited step now clears the way for the incremental funding we have had in the works for some time, but could not move ahead with until the issuance of our new (and improved) trading symbol."
