NobleCon12 Set for Club Med South Florida, January 2016

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - June 26, 2015) - Noble Financial Capital Markets (Noble) announced today that NobleCon12, Noble's 12th annual investor conference, will be held January 17-20, 2016 at Club Med, Sandpiper Bay, Florida -- located 45 minutes north of Palm Beach International Airport. This will be the third consecutive NobleCon to be held at the 220-acre resort.

"The word unique is overused but it definitely applies to this property," said Mark Pinvidic, Noble's Managing Partner, "it is the only all-inclusive resort in the United States and Canada." Club Med features close to 400 rooms, an 18-hole golf course, 25 tennis courts, 8 beach volley ball courts, a sailing center, spa, aerobics studio and even a full-size trapeze facility. In addition to 3 no-cost restaurants and two bars, use of all facilities and equipment (with the exception of spa treatments) is included in the NobleCon registration. "This is definitely a destination conference," said Pinvidic, "it's a little out-of-the-way and that's a good thing in terms of an investor conference. There is no Broadway, French Quarter or Strip nearby to create distractions. Only attendees of NobleCon (Noble takes over the entire property for NobleCon) gain access and 95% of attendees stay on-property day and night. It gives executives and investors amazing opportunities to interact."

While many if not most equity conferences focus solely on formal and individual meetings, NobleCon creates compelling networking events throughout the day and evening. Lunches are set with assigned seating arrangements -- teaming executives and investors. Following meetings and presentations are panel presentations, educational workshops, "Companies & Cocktails" events, and each night at the resort's steakhouse, Noble arranges sector-specific dinners with investors, executives and Noble equity analysts and investment bankers. After dinner entertainment is a mix of music, magic and performance arts.

A limit of 150 companies will present at NobleCon12. The selection process began when NobleCon11 ended. As at past NobleCons, investors can expect a diverse sector representation with an emphasis on healthcare, media & entertainment, technology and natural resources companies. "I'm not sure exactly how many companies we consider but it must be over 1000," said Michael Kupinski, Noble's Director of Research. "We get hundreds of requests from investor relations firms, institutional investors and direct requests from companies. Our goal is to deliver a dynamic mix of companies selected for a variety of reasons. In addition to more recognizable companies, under-followed, orphaned and restructured companies offer first-look, investment ideas for investors. And for 2016 we will have a strong emphasis on emerging Florida companies as well." Noble has been working with local and state organizations in order to offer more Florida companies the exposure and awareness that NobleCon can produce.

On the investor side, Noble is expanding its invitations to include high net worth individuals, angel investors, private equity, "retail" brokers and investment clubs. 350 qualified investors are expected to attend NobleCon12 with total attendance to top 750.

Registration opened this week with discounted rates for companies and investors available for registrants who act early.
