Rodman & Renshaw To Unveil DirectMarkets Platform At TradeTech 2012 Conference In New York City On March 6-8

Rodman & Renshaw Capital Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: RODM) will unveil DirectMarkets, an automated state-of-the-art electronic transaction platform to directly link existing public companies and investors seeking to transact primary offerings of securities, at the TradeTech 2012 Conference being held at the Javits Center in New York City on March 6-8.

Kevin Lupowitz, CEO of Direct Markets, Inc., will serve as chairperson of TradeTech’s Architecture panel, to be held on Wednesday, March 7. Mr. Lupowitz will moderate a series of panels and lectures immediately following his introductory remarks beginning at 2:15pm.

DirectMarkets will bring unprecedented, cost-efficient access to the capital markets into the C-Suite of public companies and bypass certain traditional roles typically held by investment banks that presently control the transactional process. Both investors and issuers will benefit from 24/7 seamless access to DirectMarkets’ platform through a graphical user interface (GUI) accessible via a desktop or laptop computer, as well as mobile smart devices such as tablets or smartphones.

With its many features, the DirectMarkets platform will empower issuers to sell shares (covered by a shelf registration) directly into the secondary market and to complete funding transactions at a fraction of the current cost. Using the same platform, investors will be able to directly contact issuers, with effective shelf registrations in place, to indicate their interest in buying that issuer’s stock, effectively gaining the ability to accumulate stock positions in a more cost-effective manner than through ongoing open market purchases. For more information about the DirectMarkets platform, please refer to the press release we issued on February 2, 2012, or visit www.directmkts.com.

DirectMarkets will host a launch party in New York City on the evening of Tuesday, March 6. For launch party information, please contact Jordyn Kopin at jkopin@rodm.com.

About TradeTech

TradeTech is the world's largest annual conference for equity trading and technology professionals. Since the launch in 2001, TradeTech has become the industry's prime source of strategies, information and networking and is the most comprehensive industry get together in the world.
