Liquidmetal Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:LQMT) has been trending down in a bearish capacity for the last three months, but LQMT is up 37% for a 6-month timeframe, however. Keeping with the glass half full view, the company’s new CEO took investors out on an open house tour. While this does not mean much in regard to overall performance, it does show that the company wants to be transparent.
In addition, LQMT added a new Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Bruce Bromage, to help boost production. “This appointment provides direct accountability for the Company’s operational and financial performance,” said Professor Li, “and I have great confidence in Bruce. He has demonstrated great leadership since I first invested in Liquidmetal.” This another strategic move for the company and shows the new CEO’s commitment.

A bit about the new shire, verbatim from the press release: Dr. Bromage previously served as Liquidmetal’s Executive Vice President of Business Development and Operations. Since 2011, he has actively managed Liquidmetal operations and successfully transitioned the company’s focus from intellectual property development to volume manufacturing. Before joining Liquidmetal, Dr. Bromage was Executive Vice President and General Manager of Symmetricom’s Timing, Test, and Measurement division, growing annual revenues over a four-year period from $40 million to more than $90 million. Dr. Bromage has previously held executive positions with Hewlett-Packard and Hughes Aircraft Company, and he began his career as a Human Performance Engineer with Bell Laboratories.
While the recent performance is not ringing any bells, LQMT does have some interesting value. A billionaire Asian investor is now CEO and is driving both innovation and expansion for the company. A brand-new manufacturing plant just opened in North America and the facility dramatically expands the operational capacity of Liquidmetal, both in line with current activity and potential future revenue streams.
Now trading at a market capitalization of $297.77M, LQMT has seen major top-line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 70.6%. Keep in mind, the new CEO might be pivotal to the future of the stock – he owns a lot of shares and wants to make this one a winner. We will update the story again soon as further details emerge.
