Camden Partners was founded in 1995 and built on the belief that structural inefficiencies in the public equity markets create significant investment opportunities. More specifically, small-cap stocks often lack research sponsorship and an active following among institutional investors. This often leads to a vicious cycle in which lower valuation is compounded by loss of coverage, block sales, departure of market makers and selling by momentum investors causing further diminution in stock price. Camden Partners looks to capitalize on the disconnect between business fundamentals and valuation in the small and micro-cap market segments. It also provides growth capital to micro-cap public, and to a lesser extent, late-stage private companies through direct negotiated and structured transactions.
