MarcumBP Announces 2nd Annual China Best Ideas Investment Conference in Beijing

To Feature a Selection of the Best US-Listed Chinese Public Companies

New York, NY June 23th, 2014 — Marcum Bernstein Pinchuk LLP (MarcumBP), a top ranking accounting firm with a substantial SEC practice in China, today announced that the 2nd annual China Best Ideas Investment Conference will take place on Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 at the St. Regis hotel in Beijing.

Building on the success of the 2013 inaugural event, the conference this year will feature the “best-of-the-best” of Chinese US-listed and pre-IPO companies. These companies have been selected as being well positioned for growth, having solid and transparent business models, and adhering to high corporate governance standards. Unlike investment banking hosted conferences, the open format of the conference enables Chinese management to meet a variety of sources of capital and leading professional advisory firms that have demonstrated a commitment to China all in one place.

“Given the enormous structural changes occurring in China’s economy, having direct contact with management of Chinese companies is more important than ever.” said Drew Bernstein, Co-Managing Partner of MarcumBP.  “The overwhelmingly positive response to the conference last year demonstrated that international investors have a strong appetite to invest in high quality Chinese companies.”

The initial 2013 event drew several hundred institutional investors from Asia and the U.S. and the stock prices of the featured companies have appreciated by an average of 50% since the conference. Following a major rally in many Chinese names and a significant increase in Chinese IPO activity in the U.S. stock market in 2014, MarcumBP expects to have an even stronger turnout this year.

 “Our goal is to help build a healthier and more sustainable marketplace for Chinese companies to list overseas. This will require investors who have a better understanding of China, and senior management who fully understand and commit to international standards of disclosure and governance. We look forward to collaborating with our partners to create a richly rewarding experience for all participants.” Drew Bernstein said.
