ROTH Capital Partners 26th Annual Growth Stock Conference to Be Held March 9-12, 2014

ROTH Capital Partners (ROTH), www.roth.com, a relationship-driven investment bank focused on serving emerging growth companies and their investors, will host its 26th Annual Growth Stock Conference March 9-12, 2014, at The Ritz Carlton, located at 1 Ritz Carlton Drive, Dana Point, Calif.

One of the largest of its kind, ROTH’s flagship three-day investment conference brings together executives from more than 450 public and private companies and approximately 1,000 investors. The event provides attendees with investment ideas across a variety of sectors, including Business Services, Consumer, Cleantech, Energy & Industrials, Healthcare, Oil and Gas, Mining, and Technology & Media. Company presentations, Q&A sessions, panels and management one-on-one meetings offer investor clients opportunities for extensive interaction with executive management to gain in-depth insights into each business and sector.

"This is our flagship conference, and we look forward to this event each year," said Byron Roth, CEO of ROTH. “We believe that our conferences provide participants with a unique opportunity to gain insight into emerging growth companies across a variety of sectors while also mingling and enjoying themselves in a beautiful setting. For over 25 years, ROTH has served as a trusted partner and advisor to our clients, and we view our job as remaining on the forefront of understanding these emerging opportunities for their benefit. We look forward to another productive event.”

This year’s lineup of presenting companies includes a balanced mix of small-cap growth companies, representing a range of market capitalizations across ROTH’s industry focus, including Healthcare, Technology, Cleantech & Industrials, Consumer, Business Services and Resources. ROTH’s research team of 16 analysts publishes research on many of the more than 400 public companies attending.

The implementation of the JOBS Act has resulted in an ever-increasing number of companies going public through the IPO process. Over 40 private companies will be presenting at this year’s conference. All the sectors of the ROTH coverage universe are represented in the private track.

Agenda and Events

This year’s event will continue to feature 30-minute presentations by public companies in 10 tracks, from Monday at 8:00 a.m. through Wednesday afternoon. In addition, this year’s conference will feature four extensive, one-hour discussions with companies that ROTH analysts believe have significant business developments of interest to investors. These extended presentation slots are scheduled for Wednesday morning to enable enhanced dialogue between management and investors. As in prior years, ROTH’s research team has assembled a number of panels designed to educate and promote sector-specific discussion, including the commercial challenges to the healthcare industry as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), followed by a panel on Privacy and Data Security in the Cyberspace. These panels will take place on Sunday afternoon and are hosted by Hogan Lovells and Lowenstein Sandler, two of the Diamond sponsors of this year’s conference.

ROTH is also hosting a solar panel presentation on Monday morning featuring the latest trends in the Solar Industry including discussions around the U.S., China, Financing Trends and Yieldcos. This panel is introduced by the law firm Shearman Stealing’s Partner Christopher Forrester and includes industry expert Rhone Reich, President of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) as well as management of some of our featured public solar companies.

On Tuesday morning, to kick off the private track, ROTH is hosting a Venture Capital Breakfast and Keynote by Scott Irwin, General Partner of Rembrandt Venture Partners, followed by 15-minute presentations from approximately 40 private companies in the Cleantech, Healthcare, Internet & Media, and Industrial Growth and Technology sectors. During the lunch hour, an “IPO readiness panel” will provide updates on the state of the IPO Market, the IPO process, listing alternatives and legal, regulatory and insurance considerations when going public. Panel participants represent AON, KPMG, Lowenstein Sandler, NYSE and OTC Markets. To finish the day, there will be a special cocktail mixer for private company executives and investors hosted by DLA Piper LLP.
