Why attend INVESCORE
Many U.S. and Canadian companies used to get all the investors they need in their own backyards, even if they sold their products internationally. However, for the past decade, due to major globalization, and especially since the 2008 economic crisis things have changed significantly.
North American companies must expand their international investor base, in the same way that they may aspire to sell their products globally. Publicly listed companies can increase their stock volumes and prices, and hence their market value, only in two general ways: by issuing good news (products, sales, management, earnings, etc.) or by significantly increasing their investor base. Expansion to a new investor universe will bring huge benefits to a company's shareholders and management.
The European investment community is strongly interested in U.S. and Canadian listed growth companies. Their investment time horizon is longer (more "patient" capital), which appeals to North American companies whose home investors are much less patient. By and large, European investors buy U.S. and Canadian stocks as is. At the same time the major European stock exchanges are seriously interested in dual-listing U.S. & Canadian issuers. Since these companies are already filing public disclosures quarterly and annually, the process of dual listing becomes relatively easy and smooth, and carries additional advantages of further promotion and access to capital.
A one-week exposure of U.S. & Canadian listed companies to qualified investors at 3 major European stock exchange venues is a win-win situation. This will benefit the shareholders as well as founders and management of the companies by boosting share volumes and prices, and opening the door to future capital raise, strategic alliances and European listings.
It will benefit the European investment community and the major exchanges, by bringing to them high growth opportunities – in the form of a lucrative set of new U.S. & Canadian issuers – wich they would otherwise not have access to. And all this, in a close personal setting of company management and the "movers-and-shakers" of the European financial/investment community.
