 2016  in Review

See how each of our issuers performed

By Brayden Sutton

What a year it’s been for Capital Events!  I had the pleasure of attending all of the shows this year myself, and I’d like to bring you a quick recap on their behalf.  Moving forward, you’ll hear from CEM on a quarterly basis, with a summary similar to this one so that you can track the performance of each and every one of their shows.  It is so important to follow up with each meeting you get on either side, this will just remind you why. (All conference performance trackers are listed in links below, we highly recommend you save the links so that you can follow each issuer from 2016’s events at anytime)

From Nassau Bahamas, to Whistler, BC, Scottsdale, AZ, Montreal, QC, Kelowna, BC, Niagara on the Lake, ON, and finally West Palm Beach, FL, Capital Events covered a lot of ground this year with some of the best people in the business and some of the most promising young companies in our space.  Many of which greatly outperformed all of the major indexes for the year.  Some of the top gainers in Canada this year pitched our vetted, invite-only attendees, presenting some incredible opportunities – many north of 300% inside the year from the show to date.

AlphaNorth Capital Conference

The AlphaNorth Capital Conference in January of this year in Nassau Bahamas, made possible by Steve Palmer of Alpha North Asset Management was a hugely successful show which put 43 phenomenal investment opportunities in front of the who’s-who in Canadian Finance.  Being there this year was a huge privilege:  Canopy Growth for example, is up a jaw-dropping 320% since presenting at the Capital Events Bahamas show.  CGC continues to reach incredible milestones and lock in their value with a recent world-record bought deal of over $60 million.  Sold, I’m told, in mere hours.  

Whistler Capital Conference

The Whistler Event in February of this year was also a smashing success, with many of the featured companies, such as Western Copper and Gold (WRN.T) and Aurora Cannabis (ACB.V) showing some very impressive gains, and now both up a staggering 400% in less than a year!  Congratulations to WRN, ACB and to everyone who was able to meet their teams and get involved at such an incredible valuation.

The one thing I love about Capital Events is that Neil, Howard, Matt and the CEM team truly strive to bring you only best-of-breed companies – and best of breed buy-side guys, and all of the above are perfect examples of how they’re able to connect capital to quality teams.

NXE was yet another perfect example of one of those opportunities.  Also in attendance was NexGen Energy at the Whistler event last February, trading at a price of about $0.85 during the show.  Since then, the Nexgen team not only raised $60 million and up-listed to the TSX big board, but the share price is also up by a staggering 135% since that Whistler show; a show that presented so many opportunities to pick top-tier companies at rock-bottom prices.  NXE is just another one that has beat the index this year, in their case; by over 125% year-to-date.


Scottsdale Capital Conference

From there, the CEM show took to Scottsdale, AZ in April, one of my personal favourite destinations.  Of the 32 companies they featured, the lion’s share of them have far out-performed both the Venture, the TSX, and also the S&P.  Not bad – not bad at all. 3D Signatures came out to the event just prior to their listing approval. Now trading, we’ve all been enjoying the explosive performance of DXD.V right out of the gate.  I was given the opportunity to buy DXD at $0.35 at that Bahamas CEM show along with the other attendees, and it’s now trading at around a 150% premium since then, and climbing.

Montreal Capital Conference

Montreal was a huge success, always, a favourite among attendees.  We got to take in the Formula 1 races and did some incredible networking with our friends out there.  Out of the 35 attendees who made it out in June, we would like to highlight Supreme Pharmaceuticals (SL.C). They were there with an open offering at $0.40, which has since sailed past $1.50+ and they’ve announced a massive bought deal, locking in their value, north of the issue price of $1.70.  I have to say a huge congratulations to the Supreme team in Kincardine, Ontario for providing myself and the other Capital Events attendees an opportunity for an explosive 360% gain on that $0.40 private placement opportunity.  Only 2 days ago Supreme closed the biggest financing the CSE has ever seen with putting 55MM in the bank!!!

Okanagan Capital Conference

One month later was the Okanagan Capital Conference in beautiful Kelowna, BC. There were 21 quality companies there, which made for one of the better shows I’ve ever attended.  Whether you got out on the links, or did the wine tour, I trust that you got in some great networking and had a lot of fun at this show. A company that stood out was Drone Delivery (FLT.V) skyrocketing over 280% by achieving some major milestones in the company.

Niagara Capital Conference

Niagara on the Lake was also a roaring success and a HUGE testament to us being full-bore in the midst of another great bull market for juniors. Capital Events has proven to bring in not only open market buying but also helping facilitate on major private placements. Glance Pay Technologies Inc. (GET.C) did very well at this show, with a $3mm offering being marketed at the time, they came to this event and found the money.  Margaux Resources, (MRX.V) also found a $650,000 order at this event, good work!!

Florida Capital Conference

Lastly was West Palm Beach, Florida, where we stayed at the gorgeous Eau Palm Beach Resort in West Palm – an absolutely incredible destination that brought out Capital Events top tier of US Investors along side their #1 US sponsor O&M Partners.  Although it is too early to see the potential gains from this particular show, by this time next year I am sure there will be some notable gains to mention. It was great to see how active the US investors are in the Canadian market place - especially the Gold stocks!  

I’d also personally like to thank Capital Events and their team for the incredible year, not to mention their fantastic sponsoring Companies and to all of the conference attendees.  

“2016 marks a banner year for us here at Capital Event Conferences and we could not have made it happen without all of your participation, and notably our sponsors Alpha North Asset Management, O&M Partners, Manning Elliot and the Canadian Securities Exchange.”
