Since 2009 when Sahm Adrangi formed the Kerrisdale Capital Management, he was part and parcel of various aspects of the company’s growth. He currently serves as the Chief Investment Officer of the firm. One of the outstanding breakthroughs in the group was the rise of the firm’s value to 150 million dollars from under one million dollars when it was launched.
The Kerrisdale Capital Management conducts research programs which focus on correcting widely held misconceptions about the fundamental business prospects of the company. Mr. Adrangi is known for publishing short-selling research on stocks including overhyped shorts and under-followed longs that are misunderstood by the market. The firm uses third-party investing-related sites, its website and on Twitter to share its research findings.
Even though Kerrisdale’s primary focus is on research shared with other groups and companies, Mr. Sahm Adrangi came up with a new strategy aimed at streamlining the efforts of the experts to areas of their specialization. One chosen sector is the biotechnology segment in which the firm had begun publishing research on growth stages of the corporation such as Sage Therapeutics, Bavarian Nordic, Pulse Biosciences, Zafgen among many others. Another area of focus is the mining segment where Sahm Adrangi has laid up a program for market valuations and called into question the mining projections.
Kerrisdale published a series of reports about the telecommunications industry by sharing essential views on Dish Network, Globalstar, ViaSat Inc and Straight Path Communication. He brought to the limelight the weakness in Globalstar Terrestrial Low Power Service in 2014 in a webcast and a live presentation. He also wrote a series of articles and met with the FCC.
Mr. Sahm Adrangi’s career in the financial segment started in credit-performing and leveraged debt financings at the renowned Deutsche Bank. Before he joined the banking experience, Mr. Sahm spent many years at the distressed debt hedge fund- the million-dollar Longacre Management.
Adrangi acquired a Bachelor of Arts in Economics degree from Yale University and is also a seasoned speaker at several conferences such as the Distressed Debt Investing Conference, Sohn Conference, and the Activists Investor Conference among others.
