Paris – 2-3 October 2014 – Euronext and EnterNext have teamed up with CF&B Communication for the 14th Large & Midcap Event® taking place today and tomorrow from 8.30 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. at the Palais Brongniart in Paris. Held each year, this high-profile event brings together 140 companies listed on Euronext markets and over 400 European institutional investors.
The Large & Midcap Event® is a two-day programme of non-stop meetings designed to help listed companies and their brokers connect with fund managers and potential investors. This year the spotlight is on companies that qualify as investment vehicles for PEA-PME savings accounts: organisers promoted them in scheduling meetings with investors, and they are identified as qualified at the event.
The 2014 Event is set to be another resounding success, with 4,000 meetings booked even before it began. High points include:
- One-on-one meetings between listed companies, investors and partners
- Group meetings and “discovery” meetings where companies can present their business and strategy
- Round tables and sector pitches
Commenting on the Large & Midcap event®, Marc Lefèvre, Euronext’s Head of European Business Development and Client Coverage, said, “We are delighted to have participated in the organisation of this event that allows company executives and investors to meet the largest possible number of people in a very short time. Listed companies also get a chance to position themselves as prime sources of information for investor decisions. Effective financial communications and close ties between listed companies and investors are key factors in the efficient operation of a market that we would like to coordinate and consolidate even more. It’s an essential contribution to investor confidence and to markets’ overall ability to finance the economy.”
EnterNext Chairman and CEO Eric Forest added “EnterNext is happy to partner once again with this event, to encourage SMEs to take advantage of the opportunities it offers for meeting investors and raising their profile. Communication is essential for listed companies: to take informed decisions, investors need clear and complete information—a key factor in promoting the liquidity and vitality of midcap markets.”
Francis Bader, Chairman and CEO of CF&B Communication, noted “We are very pleased to welcome Euronext and EnterNext once again as partners of this year’s Large & Midcap Event®. Our 14th Event features a representative sample of companies listed on Euronext and accompanied by EnterNext, nearly 400 international institutional investors, and over 4,000 pre-arranged meetings—a clear success that confirms our Large & Midcap Event®’s appeal for investors and listed companies alike".
