Sabrient Systems Expands Operations

Performance Spurs Office Move, New Hires

Santa Barbara, Calif., April 12, 2009 -- Sabrient Systems, LLC, is adding personnel and taking larger offices in Santa Barbara, headquarters city for this independent equity research firm, which specializes in quantitative modeling and analysis of stocks.

“We are consolidating and expanding our staff as demand for our services continues to grow,” said David Brown, Sabrient founder and chief market strategist. “We anticipate new openings for software engineers, customer service personnel and sales staff.”

Sabrient Systems, LLC specializes in unbiased, fundamentals-based quantitative equity research for the benefit of investment professionals, hedge funds, and self-directed investors. The firm’s ongoing success in this field was demonstrated dramatically in 2008, as its best strategies posted investment gains ranging from 11% to 30% against the stock market’s approximately 40% dive in the same period.

This performance is consistent with Sabrient’s track record since it began publishing its rankings in 2002. A pioneer in the field, Brown said the firm’s models have consistently outperformed relevant benchmarks over a broad range of investing styles, market caps, time frames and market conditions.

The firm analyzes nearly 6,000 U.S. traded stocks and identifies those that appear poised to out- or under-perform the market. Published weekly are in-depth reports on each company; the top 50 stock rankings by various market segments and Sabrient’s index rankings.

Sabrient is among a handful of firms that build “designer” indexes, which are tailored to focused specifications. The company has developed five such indexes since 2006, and has three in design stages. Each Sabrient index is tracked by an exchange-traded fund listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Sabrient provides individual investors with general access to its research. This is available online as SmartStock reports, SmartLists™ and the QMaxx stock selection system through the firm’s individual investor website, and through online brokers and investment banking firms.

Sabrient’s new address is 1435 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, California 93101, telephone 805-730-7777; the move was effective March 30. To learn more, visit
