SATELLITE BEACH, Fla., – Lighting Science Group (OTCBB: LSCG), a leading American maker of LED-based lighting, announced today that it has hired James Haworth, former Philips Professional Luminaires North America head of marketing and strategy as well as former chief executive officer of JJI Lighting Group, to the company’s highest ranking corporate office. As chief executive officer, Haworth will leverage his keen business acumen, acquired expertise grooming companies to full financial maturity, and his very own reputation as one of the industry’s primary thought-leaders to propel Lighting Science Group forward on a trajectory of sustained growth and success.

“Our company’s CEO must be both a realist and an idealist-someone who combines an astute understanding of the business realities facing the LED lighting industry with an extraordinary vision for Lighting Science Group’s future as a revolutionary game-changer, within that industry,” said Rich Weinberg, chairman of Lighting Science Group and co-managing partner of Pegasus Capital Advisers. “So, frankly, the decision was simple. In our field, we believe there is no one more knowledgeable or better networked than Jim Haworth. Everyone at Lighting Science Group is confident that his transition to the helm will be seamless, and furthermore, that his energy, ingenuity, and industry insight will chart a lucrative course for the company in the coming years.”

Penny Stocks are stocks traded for under $2 and they represent the small cap companies. They trade on the OTCBB so you will not find them on the major stock exchanges. They are very cheap stocks and normally come for businesses needing capital. They are a very risky investment as the business can go under and leave you with a stock worth nothing. However that being said penny stock trading can be a great money maker, and there are numerous traders who make 6 figures and more from them each year.

The best reasons to trade in penny stocks are the fact that they do not require a large initial investment, meaning that they are an affordable investment for many. Penny stocks are cheap. For example if you were to buy 1000 shares in a company with shares at 10 cents, you would only require an investment of $100, whereas if the shares cost $5 you would require an investment of $5000. Penny stocks also have the potential of huge gains, and have been known to rise as much as 1000% daily. Therefore your $100 investment can be worth $1000. This is very unlikely to happen to other stocks from large cap businesses.
