SWS hosts SMID-Cap Utilities Conference – Virtually!



On March 18-19, 2020, Siebert Williams Shank held its West Coast Utilities Conference which featured CEOs and CFOs of SMID-capitalization utility companies. The conference, hosted by SWS Senior Utility Analyst, Chris Ellinghaus and SWS Associate Analyst, Ida Wozniak, has run for nearly two decades.


Normally held in Las Vegas, this was the first year the conference was held virtually, with each session structured as a small-group Q&A providing the participating companies and institutional investors with a unique opportunity to engage during these unprecedented times.


The 12 companies listed below participated in the invitation-only event as well as the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commissioner Jay Balasbas and Idaho Public Utilities Commissioner Kristine Raper.


SWS thanks all participants for their extraordinary efforts to make this year a success.
