Archon Capital Management's investment objective is to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns by investing in a long/short portfolio consisting primarily of small- and mid-cap securities while adhering to a focused risk management discipline. Current income is not an objective.The firm's basic philosophy is to identify a core portfolio of small- to mid-cap companies traded in the U.S. and foreign equity markets that are undervalued compared totheir historical relative valuations and growth potential and which possess catalysts that will accelerate sales and/or earnings growth. The funds also employ short selling as a means to generate returns, manage and reduce market risk. Short sale candidates are companies that Archon believes have flawed business models that are not expected to generate meaningful free cash flow or profits and/or companies with high valuations whose business may be experiencing a deceleration in sales and earnings growth.Archon uses a disciplined, fundamental research, bottom-up investment approach to identify long and short investment opportunities. Their investment style is oriented towards growth at a reasonable price (GARP) with value, which implies the use of disciplined relative guidelines in both purchase and sale of securities. Archon focuses on stocks in growing industries, primarily in technology, healthcare and consumer industries that have an established market presence and the strategic and financial resources to capitalize on their growth objectives. The funds are non-diversified, employing both sector and company emphasis.
