Many small companies suffer from low share trading volumes and poor liquidity which often leads to an unappealing share price pattern. This can be an immediate turn-off for potential investors, especially the retail/private shareholders, as they need to trade their positions regularly. Leander specialises in correcting these issues, through offering shareholders regular newsflow backed by a rolling programme of meetings. Leander advocates complete transparency in your City communications, as the key to a successful stock market listing is long-term support from your shareholders.
See below for the list of services we provide:
Financial Communications: A strategically driven and dynamically executed communications programme is at the heart of our service. We will work alongside you to create dedicated programmes built around your specific needs, business goals and financial calendar. From origination and distribution of RNS announcements, to regular update meetings with the financial media, analysts and private client brokers - we can help your company achieve and maintain a “front of mind” position amongst current and potential shareholders.
Investor Relations: Investors are the primary target for any listed company. With over 2,000 smaller listed companies vying for the same funds, generating the attention your company deserves can be a difficult task. At Leander, we excel at ensuring our clients are recognised as compelling investment opportunities. Our core target audience are private client brokers, who have in recent years become the most important investor asset class for small companies. We have helped many companies build a loyal, long-term shareholder base, who have become an essential support during additional fund raising's.
Initial Public Offerings: A successful IPO is imperative to life as a public company. Leander can guide you through the IPO process allowing you to remain focused on running your business, while maximising the potential for this milestone achievement. We have executed numerous IPOs on AIM, across many different sectors and we can help ensure your company reaches the market as a compelling investment proposition and with the best possible future ahead.
Crisis Management: Protecting your corporate reputation during unpredictable periods is a necessity. We have extensive experience of advising companies through such situations as profits warnings, board challenges, fraud and other unpredictable events.
M&A Advisory Whether hostile or amicable and from either the takeover or defence side, M&A can be disruptive to shareholders, management and employees. We believe that proactively given clarity through all internal and external communications is crucial to success and we have guided many companies through this process without detriment to shareholder value.
Privatisations: For a number of smaller companies, this option represents the best opportunity for business growth. Leander can help you through this process to achieve maximum value for your shareholders.
Media Training: Personal presentation in media interviews and analyst presentations is critical to positive perceptions of your business. Leander will work with your senior executives, facing interviews, Q&A sessions and presentation training.
