Investor Relations

Effective communication

Expanding Investor Interest

We help companies communicate effectively with institutional and retail investors, directly and through stockbroking analyst and client adviser contact. We are skilled in developing programs that maintain the support of existing shareholders and broaden a company’s share register. As mentioned below, we also have extensive experience of M&A transactions, IPOs and other capital raisings.

We offer an integrated service which, as required, can combine:

Depth of expertise

The depth of our expertise has been recognised with more awards for investor/financial communication in the past 15 years than any other specialist agency.

Detailed knowledge

Our investor communication team has detailed knowledge of the information needs of investors and their advisers and of the forces that motivate them.

Separate databases

For every client we maintain a separate database of analysts, client advisers, investors and journalists who follow the stock and should be informed of corporate developments.

Augment in-house resources

Many of our clients are mid-cap and small-cap companies, which rely on us to augment their in-house resources and advise on best practice. They often ask us to assist with drafting results announcements and with guidance on continuous disclosure and on maintaining market confidence in their corporate governance procedures.

Tight deadlines

Our design group gives us a unique advantage, in that we produce prospectuses, takeover documents and annual reports in-house, enabling us to meet the tightest deadlines.

“We have huge respect for FCR. Over six years, and a further 14 years before I joined the company, FCR’s advice and assistance with investor relations, managing complex issues (most recently related to Covid-19) and our annual report have been very valuable to us. They are a highly professional and experienced team and I strongly recommend them.”

Capital Raisings & IPOS

We are skilled at raising a company’s profile in anticipation of a float, and at building demand for its shares during the offer period. We also design, produce and, if required, help draft prospectuses which communicate the company’s strengths, growth strategies and investment attractions. Working closely with our client, its corporate advisers and underwriters, we plan and manage an appropriate communication strategy and activity program to achieve the offer objectives.

Broaden awareness

We have broaden awareness of our client and build a positive corporate reputation among investors, stockbrokers and media to help create ongoing demand for shares in the secondary market.


Our experience ranges from ‘retail’ floats, requiring a high media profile, to smaller issues, institutional placements, rights issues and bond issues.

Communication & marketing strategies

We develop communication and marketing strategies, manage potentially damaging issues, arrange analyst and media presentations, maximise media coverage, create and manage advertising campaigns, and operate investor hotlines. Prospectuses are produced in-house to ASIC lodgement stage, guaranteeing confidentiality.

“The FCR team are highly professional. They design and typeset prospectuses within tight timeframes and with strict attention to detail, and their around-the-clock service ensures transactions proceed as scheduled. We don’t hesitate to recommend FCR to our clients.”

Mergers & Acquisitions

Our involvement in some of Australia’s highest profile takeovers – both for cash and for scrip – has given us wide experience of the communication techniques that can be used during a bid, as well as the issues and legal constraints which have to be faced.

Effective presentation

We know how to present our clients’ messages in a persuasive manner and to capitalise on the strengths and weaknesses of offerors and their targets. We also have a detailed understanding of the steps to be taken when a company anticipates a bid and wishes to be on the ‘front foot’.

Around-the-clock service

Our corporate publishing team has extensive experience of producing bidder’s and target’s statements, scheme booklets and other communication materials. We understand the pressures, constraints and needs for around-the-clock service and our efficient processes and latest technology enable us to meet the tightest deadlines in complete security.

Cross-border merger

We assist Australian companies with cross-border mergers and acquisitions and international exchange listings
