Frequently Asked Questions: First Time Users
Q. Who is permitted to view NetRoadshow presentations?
A. The intended audience is professional money managers, portfolio managers, research analysts, and those who would otherwise be permitted to attend the live presentation. All material is password protected. Passwords must be obtained from an institutional salesperson or an authorized representative of the investment bank managing the offering.
On December 1, 2005, the SEC introduced new securities offering reforms (Rule 433). The ruling requires that everyone have access to electronic roadshows for initial public offerings (IPOs). The retail audience may view IPO roadshows at http://www.retailroadshow.com. No password is required to view a roadshow on the RetailRoadshow web site.
Q. How do I access a NetRoadshow presentation?
A. On the NetRoadshow homepage (http://www.netroadshow.com) you will see a login form to complete. In order to gain entry, you must obtain a current password from an authorized representative at the investment bank managing the transaction. NetRoadshow IS NOT authorized to supply passwords.
NOTE: Some investment banks require that you enter their NetRoadshow presentations through a customized login page. If this is the case your authorized representative at the investment bank should provide you with this custom link. Please be sure to use the custom login web address supplied to you by the investment bank to gain access to their particular NetRoadshow presentation.

Registering with NetRoadshow typically takes less than 2 minutes.
Q. Do I have to register?
A. You must register in order to gain access to most NetRoadshow presentations. If you have not registered before, when you log into a NetRoadshow presentation you will be prompted to register by providing your name (first, last, and middle initial), your email address, and your company’s name. You will then be required to confirm your registration and validate your email address by clicking on a link that will be automatically emailed to you. Confirmation is not required to enter the presentation initially but will be required for any subsequent views or to view other NetRoadshow presentations. Once you have successfully registered and confirmed that your email is valid, you will not have to do it again and you will be able to log into future presentations more quickly and easily.
Q. How does NetRoadshow use the personal information I enter when I login or register?
Q. How do I obtain a password/entry code to access a NetRoadshow?
A. You may only obtain a password/entry code from an authorized representative at the investment bank managing the deal you wish to view. You must contact the investment bank directly. NetRoadshow IS NOT authorized to distribute passwords.
Q. How do I navigate through the NetRoadshow presentation?
A. Once you have successfully logged into the presentation, you typically will be presented with a disclaimer or other legal language to read. You will then be required to click a “continue” or “accept” button to move on. (Please note that not all presentations include this page.)
Next, please choose the version of the presentation you wish to see from the available options. You may have the option to view full Video/Audio or Audio-only. Or, you may choose to listen to the audio over the telephone (if the option is available) rather than streaming through your computer. (Please note if there is no streaming media component to the particular NetRoadshow you want to view, you will not be presented with this page and will be sent directly to the slides from the disclaimer page.)
Once you have made your media selection (if applicable) you will then be presented with the presentation to view.
