Dec 03, 2010, 13:07 ET from LD MICRO

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- LD MICRO today announced its 3rd Annual Growth Conference to be held December 9th, 2010 at the Luxe Sunset Bel Air in Los Angeles. Eighty unique micro-cap companies from various industries are scheduled to present to hundreds of institutional investors over the course of the two-day event. Merriman Holdings, an investment bank focused on fast-growing companies, is proud to serve as the event's primary sponsor.

Chris Lahiji, President of LD MICRO, stated, "The number of attendees and firms presenting at our 3rd Annual Growth Conference is expected to set another record. Investors want to see a large group of high-quality names with distinctive products and services that receive little to no coverage in the institutional investment community. LD and our main event sponsor, Merriman Holdings, share a common purpose: to help investors find opportunities in today's emerging-growth companies, which we believe are the market leaders of tomorrow. LD remains true to its original goal of finding, researching, and investing in companies that have great potential."
