Investor Perception Studies

Investor Perception Studies style=Investor Perception Studies - Investor perception studies provide important information about how institutional investors currently view a Company, its Management and financial condition, its place within its industry and its future outlook. The studies have strong implications concerning the investment community’s interest and intentions to buy, hold or sell the company’s shares. Both perceived strengths and weaknesses are covered in the studies. Where there is a perception of weakness or underperformance, the studies provide an early warning system to enable the company’s officers, IROs and IR agency representatives to discuss the issues with the investors and provide suitable counter-arguments. In an era of significant investor activism, the perception study helps IROs to keep their boards informed of current investor sentiment and concerns, enabling them to communicate with activists and work with them on their concerns.

As part of its suite of market intelligence services, LS Global provides investor perception studies where our specialist team contacts major company shareholders to determine their perceptions about the company on a wide range of issues. A one-time perception study is the start, but to be most valuable, studies should be taken periodically to determine whether and how the investment community’s perceptions of the company change over time.

The results of these studies provide insights that can be used by senior management when making decisions regarding operational and potential M&A activity.
