ROTH Capital Partners to Host ROTH Battle of the NASH Thrones Spring Investor Conference in New York City on March 28th, 2019


ROTH Capital Partners (ROTH), www.roth.com, a full service investment bank focused on serving emerging growth companies and their investors, today announced that it will host its Battle of the NASH Thrones Spring Investor Conference on Thursday, March 28, 2019 at the Park Hyatt Hotel in New York City.

ROTH's Battle of the NASH Thrones Spring Investor Conference, taking place just one day after the release of EASL abstracts, will give investors the opportunity to interact with senior management of a select group of prominent public and private companies focused on Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), an indication slated to have an exciting year with several prominent Phase 3 data readouts in 2019. Yasmeen Rahimi, Ph.D., Managing Director, Senior Research Analyst, will also be moderating five panel discussions on hot NASH topics. First, on the heels of the release of EASL abstracts, we will have an "EASL Mystery Panel" based on scientific abstracts that will be released just one day before our NASH conference. Our "NASH Pricing Deconstructed" panel will feature several pricing experts to discuss how pricing and reimbursement in NASH will shape up, and our "Why MRI May Hold the Key to the Kingdom in Diagnosis and Drug Development" panel will discuss the importance and use of non-invasive imaging tools. Additionally, we will focus on specific mechanisms of action and clinical results in our "12 Months of Data: 2019 is the Year for FXR and PPAR Clinical Readouts" and "Integrins: New Adversaries for the NASH Throne" panels.

ROTH has built a leading Healthcare Investment Banking Group over the last several years and has raised approximately $16+ billion in over 400 Healthcare transactions since 2010.
