Needham Investment Management's hedge funds are traditional long/short style investment limited partnerships that invest primarily in the equities of public emerging growth companies. The objective of the funds is to maximize long-term capital appreciation by investing in the equities of growth companies. Needham focuses on fundamental research and does not rely upon \"technical\" investing (based upon computer-based stock selection, technical analysis and charts), including \"momentum\" investing. Their strategy focuses on investments in companies with above-average, long-term growth rates, which they believe is a result of such companies being at the vortex of rapid and fundamental changes in the world economy driven by technological and demographic change. The funds engage in short sales of stocks that the firm believes are overvalued and accumulate long positions in companies they believe are undervalued. In addition, the funds may invest in the equity and equity-related securities of promising private companies. Most of Needham's areas of investment focus on the benefits from the power of information technology including business services; electronics technology; healthcare services/devices; industrial technology and internet, digital, media & consumer.

Snyder Capital Management (SCM) is a value-oriented investor in equity securities. They seek investments that combine a minimum of downside risk with opportunities for substantial price appreciation. While they may review macroeconomic, social and political factors to direct them to specific areas with favorable investment characteristics, they select stocks based on a bottom-up, fundamental analysis of each company. SCM seeks to obtain a 50% return over a 3-year investment horizon. Their investment philosophy is based on capital preservation, account liquidity, flexibility and stock selectivity.SCM's investment strategies include Small-Cap Value, Small/Mid-Cap Value and All-Cap Value. They typically invest in US equities and foreign companies that are traded on US exchanges. However, the firm may, from time to time, invest client assets in securities and warrants, options or rights to acquire securities through private placement transactions, although the securities or the underlying securities are of classes that are traded in public securities markets.
