ASX Small to Mid Caps – New York, London, Hong Kong

Recent exposure for small and mid cap companies to global investors.

On a crisp winter’s day in New York, 12 emerging ASX listed companies ranging from Gold explorers and producers to software providers took part in the second US Small to Mid Caps event. Following on from last year’s successful event ASX and its participating brokers again hosted the day-long conference which brought together institutional investors, brokers and listed companies. With 130 delegates in attendance throughout the day, the CEOs / CFOs had plenty of interest in their business strategies and latest developments. As well as presentations, ASX arranged one-on-one meetings which gave investors a chance for exclusive time with the companies’ CEOs and senior management. View the companies’ presentations.

In London a month later, the Small to Mid Caps event was brought to UK investors for the first time. Market sentiment and timing in the UK made the event in London tougher than the other regions, however reassuringly, interest from ASX brokers locally and institutional investors was still strong. ASX is currently working with the supporting brokers to build on this first event over the coming years and in more favourable times. View the companies’ presentations.

The global exposure for these emerging companies will continue on 29 October 2009 with the second ASX Small to Mid Caps in Asia. ASX and the event’s supporters will be bringing another selection of emerging Australian companies to Hong Kong.

If you represent a company with a market cap between $50 million and $1.5 billion and are interested in participating in the Hong Kong conference or interested in New York, London or Hong Kong in 2010, please email smalltomidcaps@asx.com.au for further information.
