Annual General Meetings
With over 100 AGMs produced and directed over a 15 year period, you can be sure that your meetings are in safe, experienced hands. We understand that an AGM has multifaceted aspects, all of which need to be managed for a successful meeting. From planning and logistics, to venue selection. Messaging, scriptwriting, presentation design, staging and technical challenges. branding and product displays, registry needs and webcasting … we work with all of your team and third party suppliers to ensure that your meeting occurs smoothly and is always in total control. We also recognise that this is not a gala event and at all times remain aware that the meeting needs to reflect a professional, yet restrained image to shareholders.
Your half and full year results are a critical IR event. Our all-inclusive service ensures that your presentation design and layout is optimised to the medium of a webcast and that your ASX releases are properly formatted and protected. We host your conference call/webcast and provide an experienced overview both technically and as an outside perspective on your messaging and tone.
A common challenge faced throughout the IR calendar are the global roadshows undertaken by your CEO. Whether communicating the latest results announcement, capital raising or other major strategic initiative, these tours are always high stakes with millions or billions of shareholder value at stake. We have a long history of preparing and managing these critical events. Specific services include presentation development, coaching and rehearsal, documentation advice, iPad and Android tablet design as well as technology and staging advice.

Alongside mandated annual meetings, many companies are now taking advantage of a standalone Investor Day where the business can outline it’s direction, absent the formal constraints of an AGM. This inclusive initiative allows for a more relaxed environment and more time for the company to round out the background to its various initiatives.
Much like an annual meeting there are aspects of planning, staging, displays, webcasting, presentation design, rehearsal and coaching that can be of great benefit to your business in putting your best foot forward. The quality of your communication at all of these events is critical so we work with you to ensure this occurs. Our 20 years of major events experience also ensure that no matter how complex the technical aspects of your event, it simply works.
iReport are specialists at helping privately owned business tell their story in their pre-IPO phase. Working with you we design and produce high quality communication material that you can use to tell your story … presentation design, company fact sheets, interactive brochures and website design. The same focus in the PE sector helps us with listed microcap stocks. Small listed businesses often have challenges more aligned to private firms than larger listed entities. Although the challenges and issues may be different, the goal is still the same … we help you tell your story.
Initial Public Offerings
There is unavoidably a huge amount of focus on a business for its IPO. Along with the increased focus comes a proportionate amount of pressure and stress on the internal team and the various external advisors to get the offering right. Our role in this process is to work with all elements of your team to develop the most compelling, clear and persuasive rendering of your business model to ensure your audience understands the unique value proposition of the opportunity your issue represents.
Over a 20 year period we’ve had the pleasure to work on a number of IPOs featuring both local and international roadshows to sell the float. Deal sizes have ranged from relatively small issues of ~$100m and less .. to multi-billion dollar IPOs on both the ASX and overseas boards.
Our services encompass branding, presentation and document design and production, strategy and focus on story development, presentation team coaching, consulting and supply of technology and provision of staging and technical services.
