Market & Shareholder Intelligence
Executive compensation, majority voting and director elections continue to be areas of focus for activists – and aren’t limited to emerging during the annual meeting. No matter your specific intelligence need, our unwavering commitment to service excellence is evident in the analysis. Our team’s unparalleled experience enables us to more accurately interpret the information, providing you a clearer picture and keeping you ahead of activism.
Our robust data analysis and consultation translates to greater shareholder base transparency through our annual or project-based intelligence products:
- Activist Watch: Identification and monitoring of activists within your shareholder base.
- Ownership Verification: A quarterly snapshot of your ownership base that highlights how ownership has changed over the last quarter.
- Market Intelligence: A week-to-week analysis of who's moving in and out, along with identification of the buyers and sellers, if they can be identified.
- Peer Analysis: A detailed analysis that compares your shareholder base to that of your peers, looking for similarities, differences or changes in position that may or may not be significant, and may or may not help with targeting.
- Debt Identification: A comprehensive ownership report on all the holders of your company’s debt utilizing several complex data sources.
As a requirement of any corporate action that requires shareholder participation, you must communicate the details to registered and street shareholders. These complex transactions require a veteran information agent to handle communication management and execution.
We develop a strategic plan tailored to your needs, including Q&A consultation, tombstone placement and--pending the requirements of the deal--direct contact to tender decision makers including institutional investors, banks, brokers, hedge fund managers and arbitrageurs as the expiration date gets closer. Most importantly, we work closely with issuers, their investment banks, law firms and the exchange/tender agents to keep everyone apprised of the deal, shares tendered and the general sentiment from the street.
