The Corporate Access Report is based on a survey of over 360 public company issuers from a diverse range of industries, market caps and regions. The survey measures issuers' level of engagement with investors, management participation, activities and satisfaction with sell-side sponsors, and other practice area trends.
While previous years' reports focused primarily on year-over-year comparisons, this year's report shows analysis of trends over a five-year time series.
"As a result of conducting this survey for seven years now, we are uniquely positioned to apply the breadth of our experience and knowledge of the landscape to bring longer-term trends to light," said Paul Hebert, EVP, Global Corporate Solutions at Ipreo.
Select key findings include:
- A downward drift in the number of one-on-one meetings and participation in investor conferences for both U.S. and non-U.S. issuers across most industries
- An increase in investor relations officers taking the lead in investor events as management participation declines
- A super-majority of issuers continue to use sell-side banks to organize corporate access events, but issuers satisfaction remains tepid, with only one in five respondents reporting high satisfaction
- A majority of both U.S. and non-U.S. issuers either experiencing or anticipating a decline in the breadth in sell-side coverage of their companies as a result of MiFID II
