(NASDAQ: MNTS) ("Momentus" or the "Company"), a U.S. commercial space company that plans to offer transportation and other in-space infrastructure services, today announced that John Rood, Chief Executive Officer, will ring the closing bell at Nasdaq MarketSite in New York's Time Square today, Friday, May 27, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. ET. The Company commenced trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the ticker symbol "MNTS" on August 13, 2021 and placed its first customer satellite in orbit and launched its first mission with the Vigoride Orbital Transfer Vehicle to low-earth orbit earlier this week.
"We're honored to celebrate being a publicly traded company on Nasdaq," said Chief Executive Officer John Rood. "Ringing the closing bell at Nasdaq is a wonderful way to end a big week for Momentus that featured some key milestones with the deployment of our first customer satellite in orbit and start of our first Vigoride mission. The mission we launched this week will be an opportunity for us to test our Vigoride Orbital Transfer Vehicle, learn from the experience to improve our service offerings, and help our customers meet their mission objectives. We're a young company and see this initial Vigoride mission as a great starting point as we aim to be a leading provider of in-space transportation and infrastructure services to enable the new space economy."
