Raising Capital: Outlook and Innovation*
Mon - Jun, 4 | 2:45 pm - 4:00 pm
Location: 6A (Convention Center Level 6)
Category: Capital Markets | Secondary Category: Regulations and Governance

For companies looking to raise capital, there's never been a better or worse time in the market. This session examines the outlook for raising debt and equity with a focus on the specific needs of emerging companies.

According to the recommendations published recently by the IPO Task Force, the number of successful IPOs from emerging companies has plummeted over the past 15 years. As a result, access to capital, and ultimately corporate growth, has been hindered.

At the same time, we've entered a period of innovation -- companies now have more options than ever to access the equity capital markets. This session will cover these developments, ranging from IPO alternatives to new offering structures to electronic capital markets platforms.

Theresa Molloy, Consultant
National Investor Relations Institute

Amrit Agrawal, Managing Director, Head of TMT Capital Markets

Ted Hatfield, Co-CEO
