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.”

  • “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.

  • “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.
  • "Together with LCI, we built a great brand."
    Trish McDermott, Match.com

    Eric G. Wintemute, President & CEO, American Vanguard Corp.
