Kerrisdale Capital Management is an investment company that is privately owned. One of its founders is Sahm Adrangi who is the chief investor at the company. Before founding Kerrisdale Capital Mangement, He worked with some significant figures such as an investment partnership called Longacre where he worked as an investment analyst in fund management. He has also been holding other vital positions in other companies where he has contributed to the making of their success stories.
Sahm Adrangi’s education is one of the factors that have made him become the man he is today. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from The University of Yale. After his education, one of the first places he worked in was in a bankruptcy restructuring group where he used to represent creditors and give them different advice concerning bankruptcy restructuring, representing bankrupt companies and bondholder committees among others.

As one of the chief investors of Kerrisdale Capital Management, Sahm Adrangi is concerned about the flaws of the company which if the management of the company will hesitate to make the right adjustments, the company may make continuous negative cash flows over the years which may even lead to its closure. One of the flaws o the Kerrisdale Capital Management is brought about by its bout by the KODAKOne board of director who made a mistake of issuing them some restricted stock before KODAKOne was launched. In the first place, they created a bad name for the company because of their suspicious behavior that led to some investigations on the company’s materials.
Another flaw with Kerrisdale capital is that it has an unreliable background and because the background of any business organization dramatically determines the height of the growth the company might experience, this may be one of the main blocks to the success of Kerrisdale Capital Management.
According to Sahm Adrangi, the value of Kerrisdale Capital Management is unrealistic because the shares of the company topped up in the market at a higher rate than even the investors have become suspicious about them.
