  • “For small and micro-cap companies like Hill International, it doesn't make any sense to have an in-house investor relations professional when there is a firm like The Equity Group that can provide you access to an entire team of IR professionals on an as-needed basis at a fraction of the cost.  Theirknowledge of the investment and analyst community has been invaluable as we have transitioned from a private, family-run business to a publicly-traded company listed on the New York Stock Exchange.  I wouldn't recommend that the management of any company go through that process without the outstanding professionals at The Equity Group by your side.”

  • “Working with you for the past 12 years has been one of our better professional experiences of that time period.  At the time we engaged The Equity Group, Mobile Mini had a market cap of $20 million...From no meaningful sell-side research or institutional holders, Mobile Mini now has a number of prominent investment firms writing on it and a large and loyal cadre of institutional holders. We have been impressed by The Equity Group’s continuing ability to develop and execute investor relations programs and activities that match our needs during the various stages of Mobile Mini’s corporate development.  That is due in part because you know your business very well, but just as importantly, you’ve taken the time to understand our business very well.  Throughout the years, The Equity Group has been extremely knowledgeable, responsive and helpful.  While we did our job of building a successful company, I am firmly convinced that the caliber of the investor relations/corporate communications services provided by The Equity Group has been a critical element in the gains we have achieved in our shareholder value.
    Larry Trachtenberg, Director & Former CFO, Mobile Mini, Inc.

  • “As we approach the end of the year, I want to be sure to acknowledge the people and the organizations that have truly made a difference.  That list must include The Equity Group.  When we began working together in the spring of 2000, Inter Parfums had a market cap of about $85 million, and as they say on the Street, our shares traded by appointment averaging 5,000 shares per day.  In the ensuing years, Inter Parfums has grown sales and net income substantially and our market cap has risen to nearly $500 million with average trading volume of about 200,000 shares.  The caliber of the writing for news releases, presentations, conference call scripts, corporate profiles, and our annual reports has been first rate and importantly, reflecting a keen understanding of our business and our business opportunities.  We have had highly productive meetings with portfolio managers and buy-side analysts at institutional investors in many cities.  Our Company has been profiled in major business media including Business Week,Investor’s Business Daily and CNNfn.  When I think about The Equity Group, professional, responsive, initiative, enthusiastic, thorough, and fun to work with, are the words that come to mind.  For all the times I should have said it and didn’t, 'Thank you and great job!'”
    Jean Madar, Chairman & CEO, Inter Parfums, Inc.

Our industry is subject to largely compressed business cycles and periods of great sporadic media and public relations volatility, including late-breaking industry news and service provider implications.

We were fortunate to have them as a valued team partner and by their efforts and contribution we were clearly more visible and successful.”
