“We are proud and delighted to team up with Oddo Midcap to organise the 15th annual Oddo Midcap Forum, which helps small and midcaps raise their profile with investors,” said Marc Lefèvre, Head of European Coverage at NYSE Euronext. “Direct contact with issuers gives investors an opportunity to form their own opinion of business fundamentals. At the same time, senior management can demonstrate their companies' commitment to growth, and provide background information on governance, key financial ratios and stock-market performance since listing.”
