Emerald and SIA are kind of, for now anyway, joined at the hip due to their ownership/continued involvement in the Snow Show. They are both trying to respond to profound changes in the active outdoor market that are changing their business models. I thought I might kill the proverbial two birds with one stone and see how they’re both doing and speculate on where that interrelationship might go.
Emerald went public on April 28, 2017 at $17.00 a share. It reached a high of $24.45 on November 29, 2017 and since then has fallen to $12.34 as of 10:17 AM Pacific Time on May 24, 2019. That’s a decline of 27.4 percent from it’s offering price and 49.5% from its high.
Emerald currently operates “…more than 55 trade shows as well as numerous other face-to-face events.”
