ROTH Capital Partners to Host SiC and GaN Day in New York City on November 21, 2019

ROTH Capital Partners (ROTH),, a full service investment bank focused on serving emerging growth companies and their investors, today announced it will host its SiC and GaN Day on Thursday, November 21, 2019 in New York, NY.

This event, hosted by Craig Irwin, Managing Director and Cleantech Senior Research Analyst, will allow investors to meet with management from selected SiC and GaN companies to hear their independent views on the market and general competitive developments in a 1-on-1/small group meeting format. The day will also feature two industry keynote sessions. The morning keynote will be a fireside chat with Greg Lowe, CEO of Cree, Inc. and Craig Irwin of ROTH. The lunchtime keynote speaker, Simon Price, CEO of Exawatt, will discuss market developments.

“We are excited to host this event for the first time, and showcase several private companies in SiC and GaN and its implication on the renewable energy space. This will be a great opportunity to get data points in the industry and meet several companies from throughout the supply chain including: GaN Systems (PRIVATE), GT Advanced Technologies (PRIVATE), Pallidus, Inc. (PRIVATE), Pre-Switch, Inc (PRIVATE), and United Silicon Carbide (PRIVATE),” said Mr. Irwin.

“In our opinion this is the pick and axe industry for the next generation of electrification,” said Jesse Pichel, Managing Director, CleanTech Investment Banking. “SiC and GaN companies are a technology agnostic way to play the growth of EVs and future battery technology. Longer term SiC and GaN will also enable more efficient and less costly industrial/renewable energy power conversion. We think this ecosystem of companies will develop into a fertile investment opportunity.”

Since 2014, ROTH has been involved in approximately 75 transactions for its Cleantech & Industrial Growth clients, with total transaction value over $2.9 Billion. (Source: ROTH Capital Partners | 11/05/2019)
