it is readily apparent from the activity we are seeing in the Seattle marketplace, there are many companies and private equity firms that have abundant cash available and are aggressively trying to find investments to put the cash to work. There is little doubt this has helped to drive interest in the conference.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 29, 2006
Franz von Bradsky, Chairman of the Northwest Growth Financing Conference announced today that 60+ firms from across the United States and Canada with over $75 billion in capital under management will be in attendance at the inaugural Northwest Growth Financing Conference. von Bradsky noted, “this will prove to be the largest collection of investment firms and capital assembled in the Northwest.”
The conference is being presented by the Seattle chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) on August 10, 2006 at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center on Pier 66 in Seattle. Mr. von Bradsky went on to say that registration has been extremely brisk for this inaugural event and has now exceeded 60% of the facility’s capacity and is quite likely to sell out the facility.
Glenn S. Burroughs, president of ACG Seattle and vice president and head of PNC Business Credit's Seattle office said, "it is readily apparent from the activity we are seeing in the Seattle marketplace, there are many companies and private equity firms that have abundant cash available and are aggressively trying to find investments to put the cash to work. There is little doubt this has helped to drive interest in the conference."
von Bradsky, who is president of Green Tree Capital and a director of ACG Seattle, concurred with Burroughs remarks and added, "this increased level of transaction activity in general as well as an interest in Northwest companies which has increased markedly in the last two years has greatly piqued interest from investors outside of the Northwest."
The conference will highlight the latest trends and developments affecting the financing of “middle market” companies. Highly experienced investment professionals who have consummated numerous financing transactions in a wide array of industries have been assembled to provide a broad array of perspective on the current state of the market.
