What is the relationship between Yama and Coda?

        Until the close of the 2006/2007 North American ski season, our Ridgecrest, California lab operated under the name of the "Yama Board and Ski Company" which was founded in the 1980s by Michael Lish.  Coda president Chad Houck began his association with Yama in 1991 as a monoski customer and began participating in fabrication a few years later.  In 2005, Chad took over Yama production operations with the establishment of our Ridgecrest facility and the launch of Internet sales.  Increased sales soon pushed production capacity limits, and, in May 2007 plans to improve the Ridgecrest lab coincided with the necessity of re-christening the company "Coda" due to licensing issues regarding the name "Yama".

What does " CODA " mean?   What is this  coda symbol  symbol?

        Coda is a term from musical notation, like a treble or bass clef.  The literal translation of "coda" from Italian is "tail" or "end." 
      The coda portion of a musical sonata or variation composition is usually the conclusion of the piece, as it is in a literary or dramatic work.  When writing music, the composer designates a sequence of measures as the coda, a structural element that presents a stylistic conclusion to the composition.
      In the conventions of musical notation that first spread to common usage during the 1500's, the coda symbol, " coda symbol " functions as a navigation marker.  It appears printed above the treble staves to indicate the exit point from a series of repeated measures.  The coda symbol also often appears with the note "jump to coda" indicating that the musician should skip forward in the piece to wherever he finds the next coda symbol.  It's like a sort of bookmark.
