LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- B. Riley & Co., LLC (“B. Riley”), a full service investment bank and wholly-owned subsidiary of B. Riley Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ:RILY), served as the exclusive financial advisor to A-Mark Precious Metals, Inc. (“A-Mark”) in connection with its acquisition of assets of Goldline International, a leading direct retailer of precious metals to the investor community. The transaction closed August 28, 2017.
A-Mark is a full-service precious metals trading company and an official distributor for all the major sovereign mints. B.
