Value Creation Through Constructive Activism
Our Investment Focus
We focus on investing in and providing value-added assistance through constructive activism to what we believe are substantially undervalued small, publicly traded companies that have potential for significant turnarounds.
Our goal is that the result of our constructive activism leads to a reversal in direction for the share prices of these investee companies…
i.e., a 180-degree turn.
Our investment portfolio includes publicly traded companies that we believe were undervalued at the time of our initial investment and have the potential to build value in large and growing markets.
