The firm helps companies adopt an appropriate governance structure and policies; identify and analyze their ownership profile following the public offering; develop shareholder communications, engagement and investor relations programs; prepare for the annual shareholder meeting and conduct the proxy solicitation campaign; and advise executive management and boards on how to deal effectively with shareholder demands.

These include: odd-lot tender offers to reduce the number of retail accounts; post-merger clean-up and asset reunification campaigns to locate accounts that are interested in cashing out of their equity holdings; special outreach programs to reach large numbers of retail investors who may also be customers or have a special interest in a company’s products and services; demutualizaiton campaigns in cases of conversion from mutual to corporate ownership.
