Sahm Adrangi Has Recently Cautioned Investors Regarding a Pair of Problematic Companies:

Kerrisdale Capital Management founder and Chief Investment Officer Sahm Adrangi has a long and successful career in the financial industry. Before he founded Kerrisdale he worked for Deutsche Bank, Chanin Capital Partners and Longacre Fund Management. Investment management outfit Kerrisdale Capital is based in New York and focuses on making investments that have a lot of value in the area of public securities. Along with the Sam Adrangi, the firm also enjoys the expert executive leadership of Chief Financial Officer Edward Gu and Head of Marketing and Investor Relations Peter Baer. Sahm Adrangi has recently had the duty of reporting some negative findings regarding several different companies. The first was real estate development operation the St. Joe Company and the second one was marketing firm QuinStreet.

Sahm Adrangi’s negative position regarding the St. Joe Company revolves around the company making exaggerated claims about the market value of a major development project in Florida. The St. Joe Company has placed a valuation of $1 billion in regard to its development project in remote and swampy areas of Panama City Beach, Florida. The project has been ongoing for years and yet there has been little accomplished. Sahm Adrangi points out the fact that St. Joe’s investors have suffered under what is hard to describe as anything other than a debacle and they will in all likelihood be waiting a lot longer still.

Sahm Adrangi has also recently put out another negative report, this time in regard to marketing outfit QuinStreet. Sahm’s criticism largely revolves around a very suspect pattern of fake traffic that has been present on QuinStreet’s proprietary network. QuinStreet’s investors have recently been energized by the idea that the outfit is moving towards an advantageous position but Sahm Adrangi cautions against this and paints a picture of QuinStreet being an organization that is lacking in many areas.

Big Moves In Europe Have Been A Recent Trend For OSI Food Solutions:

Foodservice supply powerhouse OSI Food Solutions is on a roll as of late in terms of major expansions, acquisitions and upgrades. This is business as usual for the top 100 U.S. food company and global leader. Since the 1970s OSI Food Solutions has been on a steady run of growth through valuable partnerships and acquisitions. The company has expanded its reach greatly over the years, going from what was a regional wholesale outlet in the early 1970s to a company with a global reach of 17 counties across the map and 80 plus processing facilities. OSI Food Solutions is a food supplier to household names such as McDonald’s, Subway, KFC and Papa John’s. The massive global growth has been possible by the culture started by OSI’s original founders and continued by CEO Sheldon Lavin and President David McDonald. Over the years, the two executives have facilitated many relationships overseas that have seen OSI’s operations expand to the multinational outfit that it is today. In recent years, the Chinese operations for OSI Food Solutions have been greatly expanded, with Chinese facilities now numbering ten. Europe has also been a particularly exciting market for the growth of the OSI Food Solutions brand.

2014 saw the birth of a valuable partnership between OSI Food Solutions and British company Pickstock, a major beef producer. This valuable relationship garners OSI Food Solutions a big upgrade in their impact on the market in the United Kingdom. A few years later in 2016, OSI Food Solutions acquired the British company Flagship Europe. Flagship is a producer of speciality food products and is another huge boost to OSI Food Solutions presence in the United Kingdom. The company is being rebranded as Creative Foods Europe to fit with the new image OSI Food Solutions plans to project through the operation.

Netherlands based food supplier Baho Food is another outstanding European addition to OSI Food Solutions and its family of brands. Baho Food has a huge reach across continental Europe and this acquisition is a gigantic boost to the OSI Food Solutions portfolio.

Sagacious Advice From Someone Interested In Guiding Others

A quick look at Chris Burch’s posts on his account leads a person to believe that they can likely learn something from him. In one of his most recent posts, he states that New York City is #2 in the business startup ecosystem. New York has a grossly inflated economy causing a start up to have an even harder time getting going. To this point, in this most recent article, he does differentiate between venture capitalists and angel investors.

Angel investors are affluent individuals who have some extra funds that they want to put to use by investing in a company looking for seed money. Venture capitalists, however, are much wealthier, and are normally able, and interested, in donating more money. New York City is a mecca for venture capitalists. In this article, he also discusses the venerated “7 Second Rule.” The thought is that you must capture someone’s attention in the first 7 seconds of a presentation. This rule is likely not more applicable than in the hotter-than-hot New York City market.

A few days before Mr. Burch posted this about the New York City startup climate, he posted about how to survive the heavily competitive market. In this piece, he does advise those looking to launch a startup to be prepared for stiff competition and that a trick to getting around this is to find those that have successfully gone before you in your space, and make friends with these crucial contacts. These people can be invaluable mentors and help your business thrive.

His advice is to always take every meeting, no matter how seemingly insignificant, quite seriously because the seeds of support for your venture may well be planted. He also reminds readers that starting up a company is crucially important in a neighborhood where it can thrive. New York is a very large city, riddled with delineations of eclectic neighborhoods that aren’t exactly clear to outsiders. Researching your location so as to create maximum opportunity for growth and exposure is best.

Finally, and this might be the most important piece of advice he offers, and that is to always make the final decisions for your startup. Mentor relationships, he says, are great, but they likely have a limit to their vision. An owner of a startup should always have a vision, hold clear to that vision, and accept guidance as it pertains to a particular facet of the company.  More views on

OSI Group Worsk Hard To Be A Top American Food Company

With an extensive and stable infrastructure, the company’s global food supply chain management allows it to deliver its quality products directly to its customers on a daily basis. OSI has over 65 facilities in locations all around the world and more than 20,000 employees who enjoy an unparalleled work experience. One of OSI Group’s greatest offerings have to do with its in-house chefs whom work to create custom menu options and come up with new ideas that make their customer bases happy.

OSI Group was recently named one of America’s top 100 food companies, and it’s no surprise that it was. OSI’s CEO and Chairman, Sheldon Lavin, was pointed to as being responsible for much of the company’s success. Not only did he win a Global Visionary Award, which recognized his hard work over the years and was presented by India’s Vision World Academy, but he also was instrumental in taking OSI from its domestic roots to the global multi-billion dollar food company that it is now. Before coming aboard with OSI, Lavin worked in the finance industry where he found plenty of success. He has taken everything he learned then and what he has learned during his time with OSI and is now working to help the company to continue its expansion in the United States as well as the rest of the world.

One of OSI Group’s most recent expansion moves is its purchasing of a Tyson Foods plant that was in the process of being shut down. As part of the shut down, many employees of Tyson were set to lose their jobs, but OSI came in and offered many of these soon to be ex-employees of Tyson jobs within its new facility. The facility is located in the southside of Chicago, and OSI Group purchased it for $7.4 million. It is expected that the 200,000 square-foot facility will help to expand the company’s offerings and support its other Chicago-based facility. Along with this, the new facility will help to expand what it is able to offer to the United States and the world at-large.

OSI Group expects to continue its expansion overseas and in the United States, and as an American food company, it is looking to maintain the standard of quality and excellence it has been providing for all of these years.
