NYSE Euronext and CF&B Communication Launch 12th Midcap Event
The 12th annual Midcap Event will take place on September 24 and 25 at Palais Brongniart in Paris, spearheaded by NYSE Euronext (NYX) and CF&B Communication.
The event will bring together 150 companies listed on the European market of NYSE Euronext and 400 institutional investors from around Europe.
The MidCap Event was created in 2000 to promote links and exchanges between listed companies, assisted by the brokers that track them, and fund managers likely to invest in their securities. Now held each year, its high profile makes it a particularly attractive option in today’s tough economic environment: French and other European fund managers are keen to meet a maximum number of company heads in a minimum amount of time, while company leaders welcome the opportunity to present their strengths and growth potential to investors.
Highlights of these two exceptional days include:
o One-on-one meetings between companies, investors and partners;
o Company presentations of business lines and strategies;
o Sector and theme-based pitches and presentations.
“We’re very proud of our 12-year partnership with CF&B Communication and the opportunities it gives us to promote growth in both supply and demand — from listed companies as well as investors looking for investments,” said Marc Lefèvre, Head of European Business Development and Client Coverage at NYSE Euronext. “Communicating effectively is indispensable for listed companies, since this gives investors the information and visibility they need to take investment decisions. At NYSE Euronext, we’ve worked for years to create an attractive, sound and reliable environment in which companies can consolidate their existing financial resources and raise the fresh capital they need.”
Francis Bader, Chairman and CEO of CF&B Communication, welcomed the opportunity to work with NYSE Euronext: “We are delighted to work with NYSE Euronext, as we have over the past twelve years, to give shape to Europe’s top event for listed companies and institutional investors. This is one of 15 events that CF&B Communication organizes each year across Europe, and is a particularly efficient way to bring company heads together with fund managers in today’s very tough economic environment. NYSE Euronext’s support for these initiatives is decisive in facilitating access to capital for businesses in the region.”
CF&B Communication is an independent financial communications agency founded in 1984.
Specialised in facilitating contacts between listed companies & institutional investors, as well as non-listed companies and investors focusing on private equity/VCs, CF&B Communication has set up its own database of European fund managers investing in smallcaps, midcaps and private equity/VCs. This includes 9,000 institutional and specialised investors in Europe, each classified by investment strategy.
