In a first for New Zealand, the CEO of IT Capital (NZSE: ITC), Jeff Dittus, will hold a live Question and Answer Conference with investors on ShareChat, New Zealand's number one sharemarket chat and information site.

"This is the first time a CEO of a publicly listed company in New Zealand is holding a live conference with current and potential investors on the Internet," says Benjamin Dutton, Managing Director of ShareChat Limited. "We are very pleased to initiate this practise, which gives people the chance to ask IT Capital's CEO questions directly."

"We believe that this heralds a new era of investor information" Mr Dutton says. "The Internet is the perfect vehicle for this Conference. Current and potential investors in IT Capital, wherever in the world they may be located, will be able to find out more information about IT Capital direct from the CEO himself."

The conference will take place in a live Internet Relay Chat room, which is one part of the ShareChat website, on Wednesday, May 31st at 11:00am NZST.

About IT Capital

The region's leading venture capital fund, IT Capital focuses on investing in New Zealand and Australia-based e-commerce companies with the intention of transplanting them into larger markets, principally the United States.

Addressing the funding gap that inhibits most innovative Australasian firms, IT Capital provides both early stage funding and management expertise that are not readily available in local markets.

Applying a portfolio approach, the company allows investors to diversify risk and participate in e-commerce opportunities, thereby giving public market investors access to successful businesses at private market prices. IT Capital's international network of venture partners and technology companies accelerates the global transfer of technology.
