LD Micro President Chris Lahiji said in a statement he couldn’t believe the index’s activity in the past year.
“The LD Micro Index has more than tripled from its March 2020 lows. The tiniest public companies were also some of the biggest winners last year, and already year-to-date. As each day goes by, the index becomes more and more consequential to the next generation of great companies,” he said.
LD Micro was founded in 2006 as an independent resource for micro-cap investors. It began as a newsletter highlighting companies, then grew into a series of virtual and in-person events and conferences. SRAX acquired the company last September for $4 million cash plus 1.6 million shares of stock.
The flagship LD Micro event, held once a year, is now a virtual event on SRAX’s Sequire software platform, which provides data and insights on publicly traded companies.
