Broker's Notes

Very popular with investors, due to the nature of the industry they are in, and the relative lack of sizable competitors in their field. Also has remained relatively out of the public/legal eye, and has been a haven for a number of investors who have decided to get out of the mining field and their companies. Stock price over the past five years has grown at a vastly accelerated rate. Company is continuing to use stock splits to allow private investment by casual investors.

Brief description/notes

Founded in 2217 as an amalgamation of a number of large-scale corporate agricultural and production companies. Operations were quickly expanded to off-world colonies during the early days of colonization attempts. Was quick to consolidate as a single entity instead of a loose alliance, which resulted in quick profits.

Newmark Survey Company is one of the most highly respected survey companies in the Federation, and has become something of a haven for retired Star Fleet personnel, particularly science personnel. It is well known for its professional behavior and the excellence of its survey results. It was originally formed as the survey division of AgriGro, however, with the number of surveys they began to perform, a sequence of CEOs saw the profitability of selling these results to other companies. Newmark is widely used by the courts in disputes of survey results.

A number of its employees have gone on to work for numerous government agencies and branches, including the Departments of Colonial Affairs and Agriculture.
