GATE Technologies to Speak at Web Seminar April 5 to Address Secondary Market for Private Company Shares

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - GATE Technologies, a global financial technology company creating market infrastructure for buying and selling illiquid and alternative assets, is sponsoring a complimentary web seminar next Tuesday, April 5 from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EDT.

The seminar, hosted by DealFlow Media, is titled "The Secondary Market for Private Shares: Impacts on Investors, Intermediaries and Issuers." The discussion will address how decreased activity in the IPO and M&A markets over the last several years has left many private company stakeholders without a path to liquidity, creating a growing secondary market for private company stock.

GATE Technologies CEO Vince Molinari will be joined by Mitchell Littman and Martin Enright, Partners at Littman Krooks, a law firm, and Bo Brustkern, President and CEO of Arcstone Equity Research, a valuation consultant. They will discuss:

  • Trading in stock of private companies: What are the securities law rules, regulations and implications?

  • The nuts and bolts of negotiating, documenting and closing a transaction in the secondary market

  • Investment considerations: Valuation with imperfect information

  • Value allocation and post-purchase liquidity options

  • Supporting the growth of the secondary private equity market

  • The value of a centralized marketplace: Bringing greater transparency and confidence to market participants -- from issuers to investors to regulators
