Kerrisdale Capital Management is an investment management company that was founded by Sahm Adrangi who also serves as the Chief Investment Officer. The firm focuses on mostly event driven special situations and long term value investments. Kerrisdale Capital has a short position at a company they previously gave a negative report, Proteostasis Therapeutics. This is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company that discovers and develops therapeutics to treat among other diseases, cystic fibrosis. One such novel therapeutic is their lead product, PTI-428.

In claims refuted by Sahm Adrangi’s Kerrisdale Capital, Proteostasis claims that PTI-428 works uniquely by increasing levels of messenger RNA and protein correspondence to the gene CFTR. They supposedly performed a clinical trial that showed the drug meaningfully improved lung function as compared to placebo. In response, Sahm Adrangi and Kerrisdale Capital argued that these results were not wholly true. This is because the patients who received PTI-428 did not necessarily react extremely good to it, but rather the patients on placebo reacted poorly. On the other hand, CFTR mRNA and protein are very scarce in even the airway epithelium, further proving the drug is not as effective as Proteostasis claim because it would not be easy to measure favored biomarkers.

Sahm Adrangi has been with Kerrisdale Capital Management since founding it in 2009. Kerrisdale Capital Management is based in New York and makes value-oriented investments in public securities. He had previously held various positions in other companies. Among them, he was an Investment Analyst at Longacre Fund Management, LLC, Analyst at Chanin Capital Partners and Analyst at Deutsche Bank. Sahm Adrangi is a graduate of Yale University, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics in 2003. He is widely known for exposing fraudulent companies and action against these companies taken by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Under Sahm Adrangi, Kerrisdale has published reports on specific sectors it acquaints with like mining, telecommunications and biotechnology. He is also a known activist, speaker and has as well appeared in interviews at Bloomberg and CNBC.

Like so many businessmen and entrepreneurs before him, Clayton Hutson owns his operations, and he has a hand on the wheel as a result of years of service. His business is service oriented, and it caters to the needs of musicians along with the event planners who make artists look like geniuses. Hutson’s training is in theater design, and some of his past clients include names such as Guns and Roses, Pink and Kidd Rock.

 

He is not a man who shies away from any particular genre of music. But at the same time, he admits to gravitating toward Rock and Roll. One of his most memorable work experiences is the “Bleed Like Me” tour for Garbage. But, there are other projects such as the “Honda Civic Tour” for OneRepublic that really showcase his professional skill set and creative vision.

 

There really is no specific moment when he knew it was time to strike out on his own. And like many successful business owners who are also operators, his move to the top was one of necessity. To get the best reward for the effort he gives, running his own firm is the only way to go.

 

When he is in the process of designing a new concept or image for his business, Clayton makes sure to keep things based in reality. This means that whatever he comes up with has to fit through venue doors or his clients and their clients as well have no use for them. For this exact reason, he incorporates technology and precision in his creative process religiously. This sharp method of production is one of the key elements that allows him to stay relevant in his field.

 

Where art and entertainment is concerned, one unforgettably sloppy mistake can be costly. It can take years to rebuild a reputation, if ever. So, Hutson makes sure to produce quality concepts and work product, which requires long hours striving for perfection. This means that his work day usually starts at 7am, and it goes until every detail is resolved. And even though he calls the shots in the office, Hutson understands and appreciates all the hard work that his staff does as well.

It’s not an easy thing to be eternally optimistic. Being an entrepreneur requires a relentless passion for success and a formula for consistency. The former chairman and chief executive officer of United Technologies Corporation, Louis Chenevert, knows how to get the right people together to accomplish nearly anything. After 14 years at General Motors and 7 years at Pratt & Whitney, he was prepared for the challenge at UTC. During his time there, he came to understand that to exceed expectations and thrive, the focus must be on operational talent and engineering. Early in his career, he had learned how to solve problems through the support of the employees who knew the operations best. To be involved at the ground level of development was a very important aspect of his career.

One of the things that Louis Chenevert did was to surround himself with positive people who had good ideas. With no patience for internal politics, he spent most of his time forging forward with the newest innovative ideas he could find. He knew that key executives needed to have the tools and resources available to them to accomplish their goals. He also knew that assembling the right team and removing roadblocks that could hinder their progress was a very important role that he needed to play. He was constantly aware of the fact that the right people working together can create game-changing innovations and advance technology further than imagined.

One of the accomplishments of UTC was the development of the GTF engine which was more fuel efficient and contained fewer parts. Another was developing X2 technology at Sikorsky that enabled helicopters to travel at twice the old speed. They developed the F135 engine which changed military propulsion forever. The acquisition of Goodrich Aerospace, an $18 billion company would alter the history of UTC indefinitely. All of these things happened under his supervision and guidance.

Let’s call a spade a spade: Boraie Development is now at the top of its game, and a testament to that is the fact that right now it’s building a 250-apartment project complex which will open in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Connecticut avenues. This would then be serving about 50,000 citizens and would be providing them with job opportunities that would otherwise not have been there for them.

According to the recent report from The Press of Atlantic City, this Boraie Development project would be known as The Beach at South Inlet, which is an $81 million complex that would be spreading its peripheries to the edge of Pacific, New Jersey, and Connecticut areas.

What this means is that New Jersey is now seeing its renaissance and is now rising again. When before, New Jersey was a place of discord and the center of dismay, right now, there’s a lot of optimism in the city, as more casinos are popping up and more neighboring states are participating in the growth of the state’s gaming environment. With such new projects and investments, it’s not that hard to imagine that New Jersey would be more stable, more attractive to neighboring states and would then be no sooner than you know, one of the fast-rising states today. Check out Press of Atlantic City to see more.

Joel Friant is a businessman who says he is a free-market enthusiast. He has started a number of firms like a house flipping business, a home remodeling company, a restaurant, and more. He is also an author and speaker who has talked to many people about what it takes to succeed in life. This led to him opening a successful training company where he helped people develop professionally and personally.

One of his most successful products came about when he owned a Thai restaurant. He had loved the heat and flavor of habanero peppers ever since high school. He took his passion for that type of pepper to the next level when he went to Jamaica as a tourist and got to sample a large variety of habanero peppers that grow there. When he got back home he developed a product he named the Habanero Shaker.

The Habanero Shaker, which he sold in the largest Washington grocery stores, was different than anything else on the market. Unlike competing products he didn’t add cheap ingredients like salt to pad out the product. Instead, he used only 100% dried and ground habanero pepper flakes. This was a hit with consumers and he sold this product for a number of years.

When Joel Friant’s house flipping business got too busy he had to make a choice and so he quit selling the Habanero Shaker. However, in 2012 he discovered some courses that were being taught on how to successfully sell a product on eBay and Amazon. Recalling his old habanero pepper product, he launched the Original Habanero Shaker. He says he can reach a global audience by selling this online instead of in grocery stores and getting great reviews from confirmed buyers has certainly helped.

Joel Friant says that because he sources fresh habanero peppers his product features an excellent combination of heat and flavor. He uses a convenient bottle to package it in that can also keep the habanero flakes fresh for up to two years. Most people run out before that, though, because once they buy this they end up shaking it on all manners of different food.
