22nd Century Group to Present at Institutional Investor Conference as Part of National Road Show
CLARENCE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 22nd Century Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT:XXII) today announced that Henry Sicignano III, President, will present at the LD MICRO Invitational Conference at the Luxe Sunset Hotel, Los Angeles, California, on Wednesday, June 4th, 2014 at 9:00am PDT.
22nd Century Group’s presentation at the LD Micro Invitational Conference is part of a one-week non-deal road show. The Company will also be conducting private meetings at the conference over the course of the day.
Starting June 2, 2014, Joseph Pandolfino, CEO, and Henry Sicignano, President, will visit five cities across the United States to introduce 22nd Century Group to institutional investors, retail brokers, and the business press. This initiative represents the Company’s first major effort to specifically target institutional investors since uplisting to the NYSE MKT exchange in March 2014.
Though the Company’s shareholder base has increased from fewer than 100 shareholders in early 2011 to more than 2,000 shareholders today, it is clear that 22nd Century Group remains “well under the radar” of most of Wall Street. It is management’s intention that the Company’s road show increases awareness of 22nd Century Group’s technology and investment potential.
