Our research reports generally contain a recommendation of "buy," "hold," "sell" or "non-rated." We do not undertake to
"upgrade" or "downgrade" ratings after publishing a report.
We currently have reports on 263 companies, of which 59%, 28%, 1% and 12% have a recommendation of buy, hold, sell or
non-rated, respectively. The percentage of companies so rated for which we provided investment banking services within the
past 12 months is 0%, 0%, 0% and less than 1%.
Ratings - Analysts' ratings are largely (but not always) determined by our "private market value," or PMV methodology. Our

modest private market value to increase at an accelerated pace, the discount of the public stock price to PMV to narrow
through the emergence of a catalyst, or some combination of the two to occur.
A Hold is a stock that may be trading at or near our estimated private market value. We may not anticipate a large increase in
the PMV, or see some other factors at work.
A Sell is a stock that may be trading at or above our estimated PMV. There may be little upside to the value, or limited
opportunity to realize the value. Economic or sector risk could also be increasing.
