Company Description

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.
