Preparing a company for a public listing is to a large extent about building an IR infrastructure. Routines for communications with the market have to be in place; internal and external discipline needs to be inculcated; and the growing number of regulations, rules and codes for communication and governance need to be observed. We help companies to communicate with their stakeholders with the highest standards the markets expects of them. Newly public companies face immediate and intensive scrutiny from investors, analysts, regulators and the media. We help such companies develop the infrastructure to handle these challenges, from the very first day of trading onwards. We also help them prepare for earnings announcements and other financial communications to ensure that their company’s story is presented effectively.
Mature listed companies with seasoned IROs managing their strategic investor communications have different and varying requirements. At Dickenson, we structure bespoke service solutions for such companies, that focusses on plugging the few holes that might exist, and bring significant capacity building to the teams facing time and budget constraints. We are specially strong at taking over the mundane yet critical work of research and data analytics, to recommend actionable priority tasks for the team to implement. We can execute insightful investor perception studies, and further assist the IROs with investor targeting, roadshow planning, and managing the entire aspects of an analyst day.
