- Internet roadshows are a critical tool for researching and evaluating initial public offerings.
- Not all companies travel to Houston, Texas when going public and Internet roadshows help us level the playing field with New York and Boston accounts.
- Our travel budget does not allow for traveling to every single roadshow meeting. The Internet, however, offers a much more efficient use of time and resources in order to research companies and conduct due diligence.
- Do not change our access to Internet roadshows or the slides contained within these presentations. Give us more access- not less. We want to be able to print the slides from Internet roadshows.
