The Middlefield Banking Company logo

“Historically, Middlefield did not have a proactive investor relations program and as a result of the changing landscape for publicly traded, micro-cap community banks, management and the Board decided the Company would be best served by engaging a trusted investor relations firm. After looking at several investor relations and public relations firms, SM Berger & Company stood out for their well-rounded and customized investor relations programs, service-oriented culture, investor relations experience, and institutional oriented investor following. SM Berger has become a valuable part of Middlefield’s corporate structure, and we rely on SM Berger’s investor relations counsel.”
