SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Merriman Capital, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Merriman Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MERR), today announced that it will serve as a headline sponsor of the 49 North Resource Conference, April 26-27, 2011, at The W Hotel in New York.
The 49 North Resource Conference features presentations from 16 of today's most dynamic exploration and production companies across the natural resource sector. Merriman's institutional investors will have the opportunity to attend company presentations in the general session and schedule private meetings with company management throughout the two-day event.
Spencer Grimes, Merriman Capital managing director, said: "We're excited to sponsor the 49 North Conference and help broaden the exposure of fast-growing international companies in the natural resource sector. Our Services Group advises many of these companies to enhance their visibility with U.S. institutional investors, which includes a listing on OTCQX, the premier tier of the U.S. over-the-counter (OTC) market. Additionally, the 49 North Resource Conference will also highlight the convergence of rare-earth resources within the CleanTech space. For example, we believe there's a strong investment upside for those investors who further examine how these companies are the commodity building blocks of solar, battery and smart grid technologies."
