28th Piper Jaffray Consumer Conference to be held in June
May '08
Piper Jaffray & Co. will convene more than 100 high-profile retail, footwear and apparel brand, food processor and distributor, restaurant, leisure and entertainment companies in New York City for its 28th Annual Consumer Conference, June 10-11, 2008. This year's conference will address the timing of an economic recovery in the consumer sector and how it will affect global growth opportunities, cost inflation and market share shifts across the domestic market.

Through presentations and one-on-one meetings, management teams from leading U.S. consumer growth companies will focus on key issues that are important to the institutional investor community. In addition, the conference will feature a teen panel, Tuesday, June 10, comprising a group of teenage students from Oceanside Senior High School in Oceanside, N.Y., who will discuss the latest trends in apparel, electronics, video games and food.

“In light of the fiscal stimulus and cycle of monetary easing, investors are trying to balance near-term fundamental weakness in the consumer sector with a long-term potential recovery in spending trends,” said Jeff Klinefelter, senior retail research analyst at Piper Jaffray. “We expect 2008 to be a dynamic year for this sector and look forward to addressing current industry trends and hearing from companies on their latest growth strategies.”

Companies scheduled to present include: A.T. Cross Company; Aeropostale Inc; B&G Foods Inc; Big Lots Inc; BJ's Restaur
