About SMG Indium Resources Ltd.

SMG Indium Resources Ltd. was formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on January 7, 2008. Since inception, our primary business purpose was to stockpile indium, a specialty metal that is being increasingly used as a raw material in a wide variety of consumer electronics manufacturing applications. We also lent, leased and sold indium when management believed it was advantageous. In December 2013, our board of directors authorized management to sell our entire stockpile in 2014 based on prevailing market conditions. As a result, we currently do not anticipate purchasing any additional indium. Currently we have sold or have contracted to sell all of the indium held in our stockpile by December 31, 2014. As a result we will no longer be in the business of purchasing and selling indium. We have begun evaluating strategic options including the acquisition of a new line of business or the sale or full liquidation of the Company. However, there can be no assurance that we will enter into any such transaction, and if so, on terms favorable to us. For more information please contact:
