  • Effectively handling adverse PR and attacks from short sellers

ROTH Capital Partners' 2010 Hawaii conference will be held September 1 - 3, 2010 in Maui, Hawaii. The Conference will feature three days of group meetings with over 50 of ROTH's top China and U.S. companies that are considered "top picks" within their respective sectors. ROTH's conference format differs from the typical investment conference by creating an intimate and focused environment enabling extensive interaction with senior management and the ability to gain in-depth insights into each company. Company participants include TPG clients Heckmann Corporation of Palm Desert, California and SOKO Fitness & Spa Group, Inc. of Harbin, China.
