Chris Frieden and Randy Moore were featured speakers during the session "Breakout III: Paths to Going Public," January 25, 3:20p.m.-4:20p.m. With increasing needs for capital and a desire to grow, some smaller banks may want to become or remain public companies. Still, the decision to pursue the public market to raise capital versus doing so privately can overwhelm the uninformed. To flush out appropriate pre-filing debates and discussions, they looked at recent bank IPOs to see what’s worked — and why.
Mark Kanaly was a featured speaker during the session "Can We Find Common Ground: A Point/Counterpoint Debate," January 26, 4:30p.m. - 5:20p.m. Top investment bankers squared off against leading attorneys in a presidential-debate styled point/counterpoint session. Ultimately, they asked the audience to agree or disagree with a number of statements using an automated response system so you know where you stand relative to your peers.
