("Dawson James"), a full-service investment firm, today announced a new strategic alliance that will combine their respective platforms and resources to create a more robust client experience. Both SEG and Dawson James have developed a unique edge in helping corporate emerging growth clients navigate today's dynamic capital markets. SEG is now able to expand its products offerings, services and strategic capabilities thanks to the partnership and synergies with Dawson James.
"The Special Equities Group has been a leader in the PIPE market since 2002," said Bob Keyser, CEO of Dawson James.

We are excited to expand the Dawson James innovative company relationships together with Coach, Shex, Uncle Andy and the team."
