The advantages of being privately owned in a publicly held world are for all to enjoy. A major corporate virtue of Ebonite International is our private ownership. Our decisions are not subject to the shifting sands of Wall Street’s quarter-to-quarter profit push. We have the flexibility and independence to focus on long-term business building decisions rather than short-term fixes that mortgage our future. As a result, our decisions, and our future, are placed solidly in our own hands. Private ownership also allows us to have a business structure like most of our trade partners. We understand your issues because we have them too. We are more like you than you may realize.
