LOS ANGELES — WestPark Capital, Inc. announced the closing of a WRASPSM transaction for Asia Time Corporation (AMEX: TYM). A WRASP is a unique transaction process where a private company becomes publicly traded through a share exchange, with its common stock trading directly on the American Stock Exchange or another senior exchange. A WRASP involves a comprehensive set of interrelated transactions managed by WestPark Capital, a FINRA registered broker-dealer. Asia Time’s transaction represents the third WRASP completed by WestPark Capital.
“With our third WRASP, we have further demonstrated a new means through which profitable growth companies are able to list on a reputable exchange and raise capital, as well as promote investor and regulatory visibility, thereby supporting their business growth opportunities. As a result, we are seeing an increasing number of clients that want to undertake this process,” stated Richard Rappaport, CEO of WestPark Capital.
