Event Registration Is Sold Out but Accredited and Institutional Investors Are Encouraged to Register at

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 30, 2011) - The West Coast Wall Street Conference (WCWSC i) will debut at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach on October 5th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The conference whose parent company is the San Diego Investment Conference, LLC ( will feature resource and select companies from around the country. Veteran investment banker Gary E. Bryant will be honored for a lifetime achievement award amongst friends and industry colleagues.

Honoree Gary E. Bryant is responsible for such public companies as Mr. Rooter Plumbing Corp, Pre-Paid Legal, Sonic Restaurants, and Petro Resources (which went on to be bought out by Magnum Hunter Resources). Bryant was lead underwriter, part of the selling group or consultant to over 200 offerings over a storied 50 year career since the 1960's. Bryant has worked with such other companies as Chesapeake Oil and Gas and Omni Films (which later became IMAX) first as principal with the broker dealer Anderson Bryant and Co. and then with the investment banking consultancy Newport Capital Consultants, Inc. Throughout his career, Bryant was responsible for a significant migration of companies from the Bulletin Board to the AMEX.

"Many of Bryant's recent and successful consulting assignments have been in the resource sector, with oil and gas companies as CAVU Resources, US Energy or Xtreme Oil and Gas," said Patrick A. Howell, Chairman of the West Coast Wall Street Conference. "From Oklahoma to California to Dallas Gary has made his mark in micro caps and oil and gas companies. He is also one of the founding members of RIBs conference which has become NIBA (National Investment Banker's Association), Southern California Investment Association (SCIA), the Southwest investment Association (SWIA) and recently agreed to serve as advisory chairman of our organization, the San Diego Investment Conference (SDIC) and her sister conference series."

"That is why the SDIC management and advisory board thought a resource conference would be the most fitting forum for Gary's honor," says Mr. Howell, who is co-founder and chairman of the West Coast Wall Street Conference alongside Hanna Wagari, who is president and CFO. "Gary believes capital market conferences are the best investment relations tool a company has and I believe these conferences are elemental Wall Street, basic patriotism and free market capitalism at its best. We perform, as community banks have been, essential services of exposure and check writing opportunities for emerging and growth companies. We do what the big banks are unwilling or can not to do."
