Mr. Douglas Kramer, CEO and President of Lapolla, commented, "Over the past 5 years Lapolla has experienced 82% compounded revenue growth, or 1,983 percent total revenue growth, despite a challenging macro economic environment and one of the worst real estate crises in history.

As a key part of this initiative, we are pleased to retain American Capital Ventures as our investor relations firm. ACV has a strong track record of assisting high growth companies like ours in increasing their visibility, expanding their investor platform, and adding value to the company and its shareholders. We are looking forward to working with ACV on this effort."
