NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ROTH Capital Partners (ROTH), www.roth.com, a relationship-driven investment bank focused on serving emerging growth companies and their investors, will host its 25th Annual Growth Stock Conference March 17-20, 2013, at The Ritz Carlton, located at 1 Ritz Carlton Drive, Dana Point, California.
One of the largest of its kind, ROTH’s flagship three-day investment conference brings together executives from more than 370 growth companies and 1,000 institutional investors. The event provides attendees with investment ideas across a variety of sectors, including Business Services, Consumer, Cleantech, Industrials & Resources, Healthcare, Metals & Mining, and Technology & Media. Company presentations, Q&A sessions, panels and management one-on-one meetings offer institutional clients opportunities for extensive interaction with executive management to gain in-depth insights into each business and sector.
ROTH Senior Research Analysts Matt Dolan, Bert Hazlett, Scott Henry, CFA, Yale Jen, and Joe Pantginis, Ph.D. are pleased to feature presentation tracks dedicated to Healthcare. These tracks will include presentations from over 120 domestic and international companies in key subsectors including Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Medical Devices, and Healthcare Services. One-on-one meetings are available upon request.
John W. Chambers, ROTH Managing Director and Head of Healthcare Investment Banking, said, “This year’s ROTH conference is taking place at a particularly interesting time for the healthcare industry. The biotech market has been fueled by positive investor sentiment over the past several quarters, with the NYSE and NASDAQ indices rising approximately 40% in 2012. The financing market has started off strong during the first quarter of 2013. In addition, we have experienced very strong M&A activity over the past 2 years - with roughly $70 billion in transactions occurring through 2011 and 2012. (Source – Capital IQ). At this event, investors will have the opportunity to interact with over 120 innovative healthcare growth companies to better understand the value drivers each represent. These companies will be featured in formal presentations as well as be available for one-on-one meetings with investors. Our conference venue provides a unique environment to facilitate interactions between a very exciting group of leading healthcare companies and those investors who provide the funding to make their vision a reality.”
