Whether you find yourself facing a routine meeting, a highly contested proxy contest, or an unsolicited take-over, your communications strategy must protect your reputation with stakeholders while addressing the immediate communications challenge. Kingsdale Communications moves quickly to develop:
- Strategic messaging for proxy, circular and other critical communications
- Transactional website to support the transaction
- Multimedia to effectively communicate your message to all stakeholder demographics
PROXY CONTEST COMMUNICATIONS
Effective communication to shareholders is the key to winning any proxy contest. In a proxy contest, shareholders are not only asked to tender their shares - they are asked to vote their conscience. If your message is not effectively communicated to shareholders, you will not receive their vote. Often, one of the determining factors of a shareholder vote is the language and tone used in the proxy, circular or subsequent communications. The use of transaction-focused websites, video and podcast campaigns, and social media devices are becoming increasingly popular and effective in communicating a position. Be it the management or dissident side, it is imperative that considerable thought be put into all methods of communication.
MERGER & ACQUISITION COMMUNICATIONS
Friendly or hostile, M&A transactions require detailed and effectively designed communications that can be quickly re-engineered to remain accurate in this constantly changing environment. Kingsdale manages all aspects of the communications process to ensure that the message is both delivered to and understood by shareholders.
