Investor Relations & Communication
Over 30 years, we have assisted a wide range of companies to comply with their continuous disclosure obligations and complete transactions.
We wrote the first investor relations plans for CRA (now part of Rio Tinto) and Coles Myer. Since then we have helped companies of all sizes in almost all sectors to communicate effectively with investors, analysts and financial journalists. Chinalco followed our communication advice when it bought its shareholding in Rio Tinto; we assisted Linc Energy when it changed its stock exchange listing from Australia to Singapore; SEEK used our services to announce record results and a major acquisition in Asia; and we helped Magellan when it announced record results and launched its ASX-listed Magellan Global Equities Fund.
Many mid-cap and small-cap companies seek FCR’s help to communicate their corporate developments and results to the market. These include AJ Lucas, Acacia Coal, AtCor Medical, Australian Bauxite, Gale Pacific, GBST, Quickstep, McPherson’s, MyState, Noni B, Programmed, Resource Generation and Universal Coal.
We have also assisted with more than 250 transactions – both capital raisings and mergers and acquisitions. Recently, we have helped with Programmed’s acquisition of Skilled, Linc Energy’s divestment of New Emerald Coal and Industrea’s acquisition by GE. Our experience includes some of the most vehemently contested takeover battles, such as Resource Pacific’s defence against bids by Xstrata and New Hope and Arnott’s defence against Campbell Soup.
“Over 15 years, when a significant event has required a well thought out response, we have found FCR able to deliver. They have helped us with results announcements, analyst briefings, M&A transactions, media coverage and our annual reports.”
