Adam J. Epstein's THE PERFECT CORPORATE BOARD Now Available
Third Creek Advisors, LLC (TCA) announced today that THE PERFECT CORPORATE BOARD: A Handbook for Mastering the Unique Challenges of Small-Cap Companies," written by TCA's Founding Principal Adam J. Epstein, is now available. Published by McGraw Hill, the book is the first of its kind resource created specifically for small-cap corporate directors. In addition, TCA also announced that Mr. Epstein's book royalties will be donated to Fisher House Foundation, a military non-profit organization that provides a "home away from home" for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers.
"The Perfect Corporate Board" addresses a long-standing void in corporate governance resources. Though 70 percent of the public companies in the U.S. have less than a $500M market capitalization, corporate governance best practices have historically been one-size-fits-all. As a result of one-size-fits-all governance practices, small-cap companies are routinely stymied by unique governance issues for which there has been no objective, practical guidance -- until now.
"At a time when the U.S. economy is relying on small- and medium-sized companies to provide more jobs, 'The Perfect Corporate Board' offers best practices designed specifically for smaller companies," commented Ms. Jennifer Ashkenazy, senior acquisitions editor, McGraw-Hill Professional.
"Just as operating a $100 million company is a vastly different undertaking than operating a $100 billion company, governing the two different sized companies is different as well," stated Mr. Epstein. "By failing to collectively acknowledge this distinction, our historic one-size-fits-all approach to corporate governance has handicapped the biggest sources of American jobs."
Mr. Epstein is a corporate director and capital markets expert with extensive finance, legal, and operating experience. He is a National Association of Corporate Directors Board Leadership Fellow, and he speaks and writes regularly in national forums with respect to corporate governance. Prior to governing and advising small-cap companies, Mr. Epstein co-managed a special situation hedge fund that invested in over 500 small-cap financings. Mr. Epstein has been featured on CNN and in The Wall Street Journal, and has been quoted in, among others, Bloomberg Businessweek, CBS Marketwatch, Reuters, and Lipper Hedge World.
