"We have an aggressive international expansion program and combined with a objective to qualify for an uplisting of our stock to an exchange as soon as we are qualified," said Martin Nielson, founder and CEO of E-Waste Systems, Inc. "MaloneBailey brings a depth and breadth of experience to our team that fits with our global model, and they are deeply versed in auditing NYSE and NASDAQ firms so we are confident that they will be well qualified to bring these services to us," added Mr. Nielson.

MaloneBailey currently has as clients over 150 registrants in the NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, and OTC markets, and they audit more Microcap companies trading on U.S. stock exchanges than any other firm in the world.
