NYMET Holdings Inc. (NYMH) Announces Overview on the Metal Recycling Sector

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - July 12, 2010) - NYMET Holdings Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NYMH), an innovative metals recycling and commodities trading company, headquartered in Port Jefferson, N.Y., is pleased to announce management's overview of the recyclable metal sector.

The metal recycling industry has gone through a major transformation over the past fifteen years. The current global demand within the steel production market is forecasted to increase by approximately 20% year-over-year as demand for scrap metal, particularly in emerging markets like India where the YOY increase has been greater than 40% over the last two years. China has also demonstrated incredible resiliency in scrap steel imports. The Chinese demand for steel scrap imports for Jan-Feb 2009 grew by more than 300% from the similar period in 2008 to reach approximately 1.818 million tons. As reported by industry statistics, the global scrap metal industry reported over 20 million metric tons of various scrap metal being sold to Asia last year alone.

With market consensus forecasting significant growth, the industry has experienced, in recent years, a considerable amount of merger and acquisition activity. The major market players have been actively acquiring and constructing new steel production facilities to feed the growing global demands. Large smelting facilities are investing enormous capital into existing and new production facilities. Although significant consolidation has occurred, the US scrap and international metal management industry remains highly fragmented and considerable consolidation opportunities remain.

The renewable metal management industry is a vital component to the economic cycle and perhaps serves as one the best examples of globalize business. Today, the recycling timeline has become staggeringly short. For example, in a matter of months, someone's scrap appliance can be recycled from the owner's front yard garbage pickup, to a local scrap yard, then on its way to China where it can recycled back into a new consumer item that is sold in the very same city where the original scrap item originated. This type of recycling happens every day multiplied by tens of thousands of metric tons. This type of efficiency can only be achieved with an expertise in global market trading and logistics. Nymet recognizes the importance of this level of expertise and the need for acquisitions of companies that have the trading platforms and logistics expertise to effectively operate in the renewable metal management industry.

The renewable metal management industry has also been typically categorized as an "under the radar" industry. As such, the industry does not attract the tier 1 executive candidates from the business world. Instead, top management in the industry is usually groomed from within. Nymet recognizes the need for top management in any successful industry participant and will aggressively pursue the very best talent that the industry has to offer.
