  • “Our Company and I in particular worked with CooperKatz and their staff of PR executives for many years. 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. CooperKatz was consistently responsive and creative during times of immediate response need, as well as strategic in both their planning and forward thinking for upcoming events, opportunities and exposure management. We were fortunate to have them as a valued team partner and by their efforts and contribution we were clearly more visible and successful.”
    Mark A. Steber, Chief Tax Officer, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service

  • “ANA – the Association of National Advertisers – has been a client of CooperKatz since its founding 17 years ago. To say the least, our start was unique – as CooperKatz had its original office inside the ANA. We grew close because CooperKatz brought a wonderful blend of creativity, strategic insight, deft writing and outstanding production capabilities. CooperKatz and ANA have grown together, provided mutual support, and made each other better.”
    Bob Liodice, President and Chief Executive Officer, Association of National Advertisers (ANA)
  • “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.”
    David L. Richter, President & COO, Hill International, Inc.

    Gene Hall, APR, Fellow, PRSA, Texas Farm Bureau
  • “We sometimes forget to reflect upon and acknowledge those whom have been so instrumental to our success.  When American Vanguard began its relationship with The Equity Group in 1989 we had little knowledge and no exposure to the investment community and business media.  With yourcommunications skills and vast contacts we are now enjoying the fruits of your labor and education.  Though investor relations is important to all public corporations, it takes a certain expertise to handle some of the challenges our industry and company have experienced.  The Equity Group has guided both American Vanguard and its investors for many years and we look forward to continuing our relationship for years to come.”
    Eric G. Wintemute, President & CEO, American Vanguard Corp.

  • “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.
