Private Companies poised for growth:

SRK Consulting Limited

“Investing in mining assets has always been viewed by the financial community as a risky business, part of that is because of the volatility of metals prices. It is important to note, however, that many financial people are not connected enough to the actual operations.The better we can make a connection with risk, the better the financial institution will understand whether this is a viable property to invest in.”
Dr. John Tinucci, President of SRK US

LoyaltyOne

“We own and operate one of the top loyalty programs in the country with more than 14,000 partner locations. From everything from big brands that you would recognize like Shell, Metro, all the way to small and medium sized businesses across the country. You can talk a little bit about the presence and the number of redemptions. A card is swiped 12 times a second, every second of every day. On top of that, because of the brand, loyalty operation and what we do with our analytics operation, Asia, and Europe are also very important markets to us. We have a large number of customers that we serve in those markets, and they've both been very important to the brand loyalty business and increasingly important to other businesses within LoyaltyOne.”
Bryan Pearson, President and CEO

Mattamy Homes

“We're the largest home builder in Canada. We've built over 75,000 homes and we're the largest privately held home builder in all of North America. That allows us to operate differently than the publics. We take a longer term view. If we don't produce revenue from an asset for two or three or four years, we're very okay with that as long as it's the right asset and we're planning to do the right things with it. This way, eventually we'll get great value to the customers, a great return to the company and we'll get more than our share of business because we've actually done something you really like.”
Peter Gilgan, Founder and CEO
Macdonald Real Estate Group

“Macdonald has been around or 17+ years. For commercial real estate investors, we can provide insight and support on projects, property management, property marketing and leasing.”

It's basically an impossible task to do manually—but we can now train software to analyze and read public documents. There are a lot of transactions to be done— a lot of major purchase decisions to be made.”
