Liquidmetal® Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: LQMT) through its majority owned subsidiary, Liquidmetal Golf, has entered into a sub-license agreement with Amorphous Technologies Japan Inc. ("ATJ"), a newly formed Japanese entity established by Twins Corporation, a company operating for over 20 years in the sporting goods industry with direct access to over 3,000 global retail establishments. ATJ will focus its efforts on developing golf clubs utilizing Liquidmetal's technology and selling them across the globe, beginning in Japan where golf is one of the most popular sports in the country.
"If you've followed our Company's history, you'll remember that we sold Liquidmetal drivers about 20 years ago, competing against the best brands in the world. While we have since concentrated our efforts in other industries, we have found a partner who can focus purely on developing the golf market, and we are delighted to work with ATJ who shares our vision on the golf business potential utilizing our technology," said Tony Chung, CEO of Liquidmetal.
"Our partnership with Liquidmetal presents us with an exciting new opportunity to develop the golf market with this amazing technology," said Ryuji Kajiwara, founder and CEO of Amorphous Technologies Japan Inc. and Twins Corporation. "The possibilities are endless, and we look forward to designing and developing golf clubs that will redefine performance powered by Liquidmetal."
