Market Wire CEO to Lead Technology Session at IR Magazine Think Tank

Invitation-Only Event Brings Together Leading IR Professionals

LOS ANGELES, CA--(CCNMatthews - November 14, 2006) - Market Wire, a leading newswire in North America and a full-service distributor of company press releases and material news, announced today that President and CEO Michael Nowlan will lead the session, "Technology and Disclosure," at IR magazine's second New York Think Tank on Wednesday at the New York Society of Security Analysts. This invitation-only event will provide distinguished IR professionals with an opportunity to share experiences, express ideas, and discuss pressing issues.

Market Wire's Nowlan will lead a panel that includes blogging consultant and author of "The Corporate Blogging Book," Debbie Weil, and VP Product Marketing, Rivet Software, Rob Blake, in the discussion about the impact of technology on communication. They will focus on the use of e-proxies, XBRL, RSS, blogs and podcasts, as well as:



-- the SEC's move to make XBRL mandatory and the technology's real-world
applications;

-- disclosure risks of new social media like blogs and podcasts; and

-- best practice approaches to e-proxy distribution.


"Technology is changing how companies distribute corporate and financial news," Nowlan said. "This session will help to ensure that we're all making the best use of technology, especially as a tool in our communication, compliance, and customer service efforts. The IR Think Tank series as a whole is invaluable in bringing leaders of the IR community together to discuss critical issues and to help determine future paths.
