Testimonials

  • "LCI is our secret weapon"
    Jennifer Skorlich, NBC Universal
  • "In my role as the Vice President, Campaigns at the Swedish Medical Center Foundation, my primary responsibility is to ensure the hospital succeeds in its ambitious fundraising goals and its $100M Campaign.  In this role, I have worked closely with The Fearey Group for over 6 years, and they have been a key partner in our success. Their ability to reach multiple audiences (media, donors, patients, prospective patients, and the community at large) has been instrumental in our ability to better convey the important role Swedish plays as a non-profit health care provider. There public relations and communications efforts have been invaluable, both to the Foundation and to the entire medical center. They have a proactive approach, always striving to come up with new, better and innovative ideas. They have been a big asset to both the Foundation and the medical center over the years."

  • “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.

  • “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.
