Red Oak Partners manages the Red Oak Family of Funds with the goal of achieving consistent above average returns and capital appreciation through a combination of long-term and short-term investments while also attempting to preserve capital and mitigate risk through diversification of investments and hedging activities. Most of the partnerships' assets are invested in publicly traded equity securities of small-micro-cap and mid-cap companies ($1 million to $3 million). Assets are also invested in the private equity market. Red Oak focuses on companies that have a reasonable expectation of producing above average returns. Red Oak purchases equities they believe are undervalued and lack significant analyst coverage, and sells short equities they believe are overvalued. The firm invests without regard to market sector. More specifically, Red Oak seeks to invest the majority of the partnerships' assets in companies involved in special situation events and/or companies with strong stable franchises, a high value added service or product, attractive industry dynamics, proven managements, consistent excess cash flow, growth at a reasonable price (GARP) and other indicators of value. Red Oak seeks to sell short small/micro- and mid-cap equities of overvalued and troubled companies.Red Oak's investment strategies include investments in a wide variety of securities and financial instruments, domestic and foreign, of all kinds and descriptions, whether publicly traded or privately placed, including, but not limited to, common and preferred stocks, bonds and other debt securities, convertible securities, limited partnership interests, mutual fund shares, options, warrants, commodities, futures, derivatives (including swaps, forward contracts and structured instruments), currencies, monetary instruments and cash and cash equivalents.

Wynnefield Capital (WC) is a value investor that specializes in investments in US small-cap situations that have company or industry specific catalysts. The firm employs an active investment philosophy. They are not involved in Greenmail situations, but focus on initiatives with management and outside directors to release value.The firm seeks to invest in underfollowed, unrecognized and undervalued companies that fit their parameters. They look for companies with minimal balance sheet risk and the potential for micro or macro change. WC adds value by uncovering both long and short opportunities through original research. They are tax-conscious investors and generally maintain portfolio positions for 24 to 36 months. Catalytic factors they consider include a balance sheet with little or rapidly decreasing debt, changes in governmental regulation, scale-driven industry consolidation and management succession issues or situations where management compensation is related directly to creation of shareholder value and shareholder friendly board of directors. They also consider insider buying and turnaround situations where changes in the structure of a business improve focus on shareholder value.WC maintains a proactive posture with respect to their portfolio names when they believe management is not responding appropriately to surface shareholder value, where corporate governance issues exist or where outside assistance can be provided to a management working to implement value-creating strategies. In numerous cases, they are forms 13-D and 4 filers and have, in rare circumstances, accepted a board of director's seat.The firm seeks to provide hedged returns, not only through individual securities, but also by using index futures when their research indicates systemic market or sector, risk. WC looks for overextended valuations relative to earnings potential, increasing balance sheet risk, unfavorable marketplace changes for a company's products, management instability, extreme speculative market moves or the emergence of deteriorating industry macros.WC is an activist firm and is included in the SharkWatch50 as one the 50 most prominent activist investors.
