Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 31, 2007
Middle market companies eager to learn the latest developments in financing business growth will hit a goldmine on August 9 at the Northwest Growth Financing Conference.
Executives representing 70 private equity firms from across the U.S. and Canada will join corporate executives, investment bankers and other finance professionals at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center for the day-long conference, presented by the Seattle chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG). The keynote address features James Weber, CEO and President of Brooks Sports, Inc., the Bothell-based maker of high-end performance running shoes that has experienced record growth over the last five years.
Chuck Gottschalk, managing partner of Tatum LLC and president of the Seattle Chapter of ACG, notes last year's inaugural event was a sell-out.
"The Northwest Growth Financing Conference offers participants a rare opportunity to learn the latest developments in middle market financing while meeting executives from top investment firms - all in a single day," Gottschalk said.
"The increasing level of M&A activity in the Pacific Northwest makes Seattle the perfect location for a conference that draws top investment firms from around the country and Canada. The Seattle chapter of ACG is proud to host an event of this caliber."
The day-long agenda includes:
- Panel discussions on alternative financing sources, mezzanine and subordinated debt, and private equity with professionals from numerous investment capital firms.
- Key note presentation by James Weber of Brooks Sports, Inc; luncheon presentation by Doug Tatum of Tatum LLC on key attributes of "break-through" growth companies.
- The Middle Market Financing Roundup, the conference's closing event, featuring a Washington wine tasting reception with senior executives from 50 of the nation's leading private equity funds and mezzanine/subordinated debt funds.
"Participants at the 2006 conference have noted their opportunities increased significantly as a result of attending the conference," said Franz von Bradsky, president of Green Tree Capital and conference chairman.
