Pacific Epoch Becomes Independent Investment Research Company

Management Buyout Means It's Business as Usual Providing Clients With Clarity on the Performance of Internet Companies in China

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2014) - Pacific Epoch is now a fully independent entity after its strategic management buyout from Pacific Crest Securities. The team will continue to provide relevant, timely, and insightful information on the consumer-led Internet market in China.

According to S&P Capital IQ, four of the world's 10 largest Internet companies by stock-market value are based in Asia, up from two in 2004. Pacific Epoch's investment research services are meeting the demand for credible proprietary data and reliable on the ground analysis about the digital consumer in China.

Currently, China has over 600 million Internet users that are driving change. "China clearly offers a tremendous opportunity as the connected consumer continues to grow," said Joseph Berger, CEO of Pacific Epoch. "Our research teams identify and evaluate key trends impacting Internet companies in this market through our proprietary data and on the ground analysis and then translate them into actionable insights for our clients."

After operating Pacific Epoch for three years, Berger said, "It was a perfect time to work with Pacific Crest Securities to spin-out Pacific Epoch as a separate company. Now, as a standalone investment research services firm, Pacific Epoch will better serve its clients by focusing exclusively on the Internet sector in China."
