CCG Investor Relations Announces Presenting Companies for China Best Ideas Investment Conference, September 10th in Beijing
-- Preliminary line up of public companies selected for strong business models, corporate governance and transparency to represent best of U.S.-listed China names

NEW YORK, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  CCG Investor Relations ("CCG"), a leading US-headquartered global investor relations and strategic communications consultancy, today announced the presenting companies for 2013 China Best Ideas Investment Conference. The event will showcase some of the very best managed Chinese companies that are listed overseas and foster an open and informative dialogue with investors. The event will be co-hosted by Marcum Bernstein & Pinchuk, a top-ranking U.S accounting and consulting firm with a substantial China and international practice.

The 2013 China Best Ideas Investment Conference will take place on September 10, 2013 in Beijing, China, at the Four Seasons at 48 LiangMaQiao Road, 100125 Chaoyang District, Beijing. The one-day event will provide investors with the opportunity to meet with the senior management of Chinese companies that have been carefully selected for their strong business models, meeting international standards of corporate governance and being transparent with investors.

The event is free to attend for institutional investors, family offices, private equity and venture funds, and for the senior management of public companies listed in the U.S. or preparing for an overseas IPO. To register please go to http://chinabestideasconference.com/registration.htm

The preliminary list of the presenting companies includes:

"We are very excited about the caliber of the companies that have agreed to participate in the inaugural China Best Ideas Conference. After reviewing the more than 200 Chinese companies that continue to be listed in the U.S. we assembled a list of those we believe meet the criteria of having solid business models, a level of commitment to corporate governance, and a reasonable degree of transparency, representing approximately 15% of those listed companies. We hope that additional companies who have been invited will decide to join what we expect will be a very high profile and elite event," said Crocker Coulson, President of CCG Investor Relations.

"While the Chinese macro-economy continues to face sizable structural difficulties, many of these names have compelling secular growth stories that are not overly sensitive to overall GDP growth or the potential contraction of the corporate and local government debt markets in the PRC. With the recent changes in the Chinese government, we have witnessed a more constructive dialogue between the CSRC and the U.S. regulators and a wide-spread acknowledgement that China needs to move beyond the statist, fixed asset-driven growth model of the past five years.

"Funds that are invested in China must keep a careful eye on these developments and an open mind towards their asset allocation strategies. Funds that have turned away from China in recent years may find this to be a propitious time to take a fresh look at the risks and opportunities of investing in the world's second largest economy," Coulson concluded.

The 2013 China Best Ideas Investment Conference is designed to provide investors with an introduction to pre-IPO as well as high quality publicly-traded China companies from the PRC. At the same time, the event will include a dialogue among investors, management, economists, and accounting and governance experts to address the legacy and current China capital markets environment and the necessary steps to create a more vibrant and healthy capital market landscape.

CCG and Marcum are also hosting the Capital Markets & Accounting Bootcamp which is open to all U.S.-listed company management teams to attend. If desired, these companies can also hold one-on-one meetings with investors and other professionals on September 10th at the China Best Ideas Investment Conference.
