CMA Corp., Ltd. Joins OTCQX International

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - Pink OTC Markets Inc., the leading electronic inter-dealer quotation system, trading technology and financial information provider for over-the-counter (OTC) securities, today announced that CMA Corp. (ASX: CMV) (OTCQX: CMANY), a leading integrated Australian-based recycling group, has chosen to list its American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) on OTCQX. CMA Corp.'s ADRs began trading today on the OTC market's prestigious tier, OTCQX International. Investors can find current disclosure and financial information for the company on and

"We are pleased to welcome CMA Corp. to OTCQX," said Cromwell Coulson, Chairman and CEO of Pink OTC Markets. "OTCQX gives CMA Corp. a visible market tier to increase U.S. investor awareness and is a natural choice for international companies that wish to have a reputable and liquid secondary market for their U.S. shareholders and employees, in accordance with home country compliance requirements."

U.S. investment bank Merriman Curhan Ford will serve as CMA Corp.'s Principal American Liaison ("PAL") on OTCQX, responsible for providing guidance on listing requirements. "The OTCQX market continues to attract high-quality businesses, like CMA, that are keen to establish a secondary listing in the United States and benefit from the breadth of US institutional investors," said Stephen Nash, managing director and head of Merriman Curhan Ford's OTCQX Advisory Group. "With recovering market conditions, now is an opportune time to target US investors, given the abundance of cash on the sidelines -- approximately $4 trillion in US money market accounts -- which should be put to work as conditions improve. We also see a strong trend toward global diversification, approximately $4.4 trillion in ADRs traded in 2008 and up 34% over ADR trading volumes in 2007."

CMA Corp.'s ADRs will trade in the United States on OTCQX under the ticker "CMANY" where each ADR will represent twenty ordinary shares. CMA Corp.'s shares are also listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). The company's headquarters are in Sydney, Australia.
