BCM evaluates the economic and investment environment to identify the most attractive companies for investment and desired market exposure. Their approach is primarily one of fundamental analysis in evaluating securities. Among the individual company factors considered in evaluating securities are past and prospective earnings and dividends, cash flow, return on equity and invested capital, asset value, and debt/equity ratio. Industry factors are also considered as part of the fundamental analysis, including competitive position versus peer groups worldwide, product cycles, barriers to entry, and global supply & demand conditions. Country factors include macroeconomic conditions, along with government, regulatory and cultural influences for international securities. Valuation analysis is utilized for securities to make a judgment whether the security is a superior investment value in both an absolute sense and relative to alternative rates of return in the financial markets on a risk adjusted basis. BCM utilizes financial newspapers, magazines, and periodicals to keep abreast of information of a general nature. The investment strategy employed by the firm generally involves establishing long term positions.

Conestoga Capital Advisors (CCA) generally uses an investment process that is based on fundamental business and credit analysis; capital structure and liquidation analysis, a review of all legal documentation surrounding an issuer's securities; and identification of an investment catalyst. In making investment decisions, the firm relies on internally generated research, derived from annual reports, prospectuses, filings with the SEC, corporate press releases, inspections of corporate activities, conversations with the firm and/or competitors, financial newspapers, magazines and other sources. They may also use research materials prepared by others in making an investment decision. During the research process, CCA makes an assessment of the quality of the security in question by examining, among other things, financial metrics of the relevant company, the integrity and strategic vision of the management team and the ability to execute such strategy, as well as the attractiveness and risks of the company's industry. The firm reviews companies that meet its criteria, and if according to their analysis, a company has the potential to appreciate at least 100% over a three-to-five year period they will make a decision to buy the security. Client portfolios are fully invested and diversified across industries.
