ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RedChip Companies, Inc. ("RedChip"), an international research, investor relations, and media company, today announced the launch of its mid-cap research and investor relations platform.

Leveraging 20 years of expertise in small-cap research and investor relations, RedChip is now deploying its comprehensive platform for mid-cap companies. Designed to systematically reach thousands of retail and institutional investors, RedChip's mid-cap research and investor relations platform is particularly effective for ADR companies whose stories are not well-known among Wall Street professionals.

Beginning in the early 1990s, RedChip covered such names as Starbucks Corp., Nike, Inc., Winnebago, and Marketwatch.com. RedChip analysts have built their reputations on discovering tomorrow's blue chips today. Over the last four years, RedChip has issued research on hundreds of public companies, including:

Coffee Holding Co., Inc, ZAGG Inc., Craft Brew Alliance, Inc., Greenfield Online Inc., Inventure Foods, Inc., K12, Inc., LKQ Corp., NovaGold Resources Inc., Pervasive Software Inc., Rentech, Inc., Dawson Geophysical Co., Diamond Foods, Inc., G. Willi Food-International Ltd., Limoneira Company, optionsXpress Holdings, Inc., PetMed Express, Inc., Rick's Cabaret International Inc., Alpha & Omega Semiconductor, Ltd., Bovie Medical Corp., Century Casinos Inc., China HGS Real Estate Inc., CSR plc, Cleantech Solutions International, Inc., CytRx Corporation, DURECT Corporation, Elephant Talk Communications Corp., Energy Recovery, Inc., Image Sensing Systems, Inc., Leading Brands Inc., Lentuo International Inc., Local Corporation, Merge Healthcare Incorporated, Newtek Business Services Inc., Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp., Sterling Construction Co. Inc., Tandy Leather Factory, Inc., Trina Solar Limited, Wave Systems Corp., WPCS International Incorporated, NTS, Inc., Asure Software, Inc. and Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding Limited.

RedChip's program complements but far exceeds the reach of investment banking roadshows. Unlike investment banks serving mid-cap companies, RedChip's platform reaches thousands of retail stockbrokers, family offices, hedge funds and accredited investors on four continents. RedChip's database of 60,000 qualified investors, developed over 20 years, is the best in the business. RedChip's institutional outreach is second-to-none. Using the most sophisticated institutional targeting tools, RedChip identifies all institutions with positions in comparable companies and then systematically reaches those institutions for calls and meetings with management.

The RedChip Mid-Cap Platform includes:

  • Client Research Profile mailed to all institutions with positions in comparable companies
  • Outbound telephone calls to institutional fund managers presenting client story
  • Virtual conference presentations to hundreds of mid-cap investors
  • Institutional and retail roadshows in six major U.S. cities
  • Press releases distributed to 50,000 mid-cap retail investors
  • RedChip TV Platform: Client interview and updates, reaching 20 million homes weekly
