EQUITY MARKET DEVELOPMENT™ is an activist approach for micro- & small-cap issuers to engage investors in the secondary market.
Recognizing that the valuations of financially sound micro-cap companies were being discounted due to lack of exposure, the co-founders of Portage saw the promise of applying sell-side investment banking techniques combined with the best practices of Investor Relations to combat this problem. The resulting service, EQUITY MARKET DEVELOPMENT™, connects Portage’s client companies and the investing community in the United States with an aim towards bringing about fairer valuation of Portage’s client companies.
EQUITY MARKET DEVELOPMENT™ enables smaller issuers to become beneficiaries, not victims, of the secondary markets.

“We see no better way for soundly managed small- and micro-cap companies to obtain fair valuation in the marketplace than to target their outreach efforts towards those who value the company: existing and potential investors. “
