Kingsdale Shareholder Services Inc. - Proxy Solicitation

By: Kingsdale Shareholder  09-12-2011

The climate of today's marketplace presents unique challenges for issuers, their boards and management teams. Shareholders expect more information and better disclosure than ever before. Kingsdale understands the need for effective communication with individual investors and the importance of strong relationships with institutional investors and other key industry contacts. We structure winning solicitation strategies by effectively communicating with proxy holders, analyzing voting patterns, and providing expert advisory services to ensure compliance with corporate statutes.

Operating in the context of mergers and acquisitions, proxy contests, and special and routine shareholder meetings, Kingsdale offers specialized programs and services tailored to meet the unique needs of your transaction.  In a proxy contest, shareholders are not only asked to vote their shares - they are asked to vote their conscience. If your message is not effectively communicated to your shareholders, you will not receive their vote. We have successfully represented both management and dissidents in proxy contests and, in 2009 alone, Kingsdale was retained on 22 of 40 proxy contests launched in Canada - while 12 of the 40 did not retain a proxy solicitor. 

Kingsdale understands that the language on the proxy or proxy circular can be the determining factor in a transaction, so we put considerable thought into this communication.  A strong team of legal advisors, investor/public relations consultants, and a proxy solicitor is imperative to your success.
