Company Description

Perritt Capital Management (PCM) specializes in small-cap investment strategies for individual and institutional investors. Though not limited by sector, the firm tends to invest in the stocks of US small-cap companies in the electronic technology, industrial services and healthcare services sectors. PCM maintains a very low turnover rate.The firm offers a small-cap strategy to institutional clients that seek above average long-term investment returns. The Perritt Smaller Company strategy seeks to capture the benefits of investing in fundamentally sound, small-cap companies through bottom-up, fundamental stock selection. Their investment selection process begins with a universe of approximately 5,000 publicly-traded companies with market-cap of $50 million to $500 million. PCM's investment ideas are derived from a variety of sources, including in-house fundamental research and relationships with research firms and regional brokers. Ideas are subjected to a 9-step assessment that is based on investment fundamentals including strong balance sheets, positive cash flows and expanding profitability. Companies that meet these criteria are then qualitatively analyzed through discussions with operating management and additional in-house research. The firm seeks to identify companies with niche businesses, competitive advantages, strong market shares and proven management teams. Final selections are based on a set of valuation metrics targeting upward trends in revenue and cash flow, positive earnings and long-term growth potential . Sell decisions are based on valuations, weakened fundamentals or a market-cap approaching $1.5 billion. PCM maintains a diversified portfolio of long-term holdings. The portfolio invests in the stocks of 100 or more companies across all industries and sectors. Positions generally range from .5% to 1.5% of the portfolio's assets and may be reduced if they exceed 3%.
