Verbatim Launches Subscription and Off-The-Shelf Reports

Maynard, Massachusetts, October 19, 2009 – Verbatim Advisory Group, an independent research provider (IRP) that serves institutional investors, today announced the availability of the first of its subscription and off-the-shelf reports for limited distribution.

Strong interest from clients in Verbatim’s accurate, in-depth proprietary research led Verbatim to launch monthly Channel Investigations of Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs).  Verbatim’s rigorous and disciplined approach provides clients with unique insights into current trends, plus the outlook for the sector and each of the companies covered.  Reports include Monthly and Quarter-to-Date statistics, key qualitative findings, and unfettered access to raw interviews.

“For the past five years Verbatim’s research has been proprietary to the client that requests a specific project,” explained John Strehle, Verbatim’s Managing Partner.  “Our proprietary research services continue to be foundational to our service offering, but due to client demand and the uniformity of our client’s investment questions in the Restaurant and Retail sectors, we find that this alternate delivery model is needed.  By providing limited-distribution subscription and off-the-shelf reports, we are maximizing our clients’ independent research coverage while allowing them to maintain their first-mover advantage.”

Verbatim offers coverage of over 100 retail and restaurant chains for either subscription, off-the-shelf or proprietary reports.  Additional subscription and off-the-shelf reports are planned for Full-Service Restaurants, Specialty Apparel, Youth Apparel, and for Department, Discount, and Big-Box stores.
