BoardVote Connects Small and Mid-Cap Public Companies to Investors

New Website Eases Transfer of Information, Offers Two-Way Dialogue

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) - For the first time, a new service is now bridging the communication gap that currently exists between small and mid-cap public companies and their investors. The goal of, launched in August 2012, is to eliminate the disconnection and allow for a two-way dialogue between small and mid-cap companies and their investors.

"We recognized that some of the most compelling stories in the business world, never reach investors who may be interested in buying into the companies behind them," says Faruq Marican, Founder & CEO of BoardVote Inc. "That's because the traditional Wall Street analysts often pay little or no attention to the next Facebook or Groupon until it becomes the subject of a major news story. BoardVote was created to give companies an audience at a key time in their evolution and investors the opportunity to engage in open dialogue with management. It is a revolutionary financial empowerment tool. We think of it as similar to having a seat on the board."

Investors will more readily be able to ask the company questions and access valuable company information via rich content options such as webcasts, videos, and slideshows, SEC filings and press releases.

Businesses can more easily share information with their investors, as SEC filings and press releases are uploaded automatically. Additionally, BoardVote's voting feature will give companies unprecedented insight for gauging investor sentiment on particular articles, or other information. Users can vote on the popularity of any content put on the site. A ranking algorithm will display the most pertinent issues or questions on top.

An online community feature will provide an opportunity whereas investors and financial experts can communicate with each other, sharing ideas, knowledge and advice. Companies will also be able to create their own online polls, to better gauge sentiment.
