Our work on your company's behalf presents detailed information to the large pool of qualified investors in our proprietary database management system; strengthens lines of communication with existing shareholders; reaches out to financial advisors and other important members of the investment community; and improves exposure in the media. The ultimate goal of this process is to achieve a significant and sustainable increase in trading liquidity and to ensure that your company's stock is assigned its full value in the marketplace. Personal contact, e-mail and physical mail are just some of the tools we use in building a communications program that puts your company's story front and centre in the minds of the investment community.
Successfully introducing a corporate story to the financial community requires experience, knowledge and determination. It is hard work, but the impact on a company's operations can be enormously positive. Progressive IR meets this challenge using its extensive database of retail investors, stock brokers, financial advisors, institutional investors and analysts to get your company's story into the right hands. Our flexible service approach allows your management team to customize our program to fit your needs.
Result: New shareholders are attracted while existing shareholders are retained. Your company's stock achieves/maintains full and fair value while increasing liquidity.
Proactive outreach to the financial community with a carefully-crafted message that conveys a positive and accurate image of our client
