Market Eye, Australia’s leading specialist investor relations advisory firm, today launched Market Forecasts, an innovative online platform that enables listed companies to easily and efficiently track market consensus earnings forecasts in much greater detail than currently available.

Market Forecasts is a highly developed web-based platform that collects and analyses earnings forecasts at the press of a button. It has been carefully designed to make it easier for listed companies to better understand broker earnings forecasts, and offers a range of customised analysis and reporting tools.

Importantly, because Market Eye does not sell the data collected to external parties, listed companies using the platform can receive much more comprehensive consensus information than that currently available through other platforms. Based on a known set of analysts, a tailored set of

customised metrics, and measured on a consistent basis, Market Forecasts provides listed companies with the best possible earnings consensus data.

Commenting on the development of Market Forecasts, Ronn Bechler, Managing Director of Market Eye, said:
“Having previously headed up AXA Asia Pacific Holding’s investor relations function, I experienced first- hand the substantial frustration of trying to keep track of analyst earnings forecasts and assumptions.

“Now, more than ever, keeping abreast of market consensus numbers is a critical component when managing the continuous disclosure requirements of an ASX-listed company. Market Forecasts has been specifically developed to address this and allow listed companies to more effectively track and understand analyst earnings forecasts and market consensus.

“Market Forecasts adds to our suite of new online market intelligence platforms. Used in conjunction with Market Holders, our market leading underlying beneficial holder data, and Market HQ, our fully integrated investor relations platform, companies can now effectively and efficiently manage their register analyses, investor relations database management, investor communications and meetings, as well as detailed broker consensus forecasts all in the one spot.

“We are very excited by the launch of Market Forecasts, and the potential it has to improve the way listed companies interact with broker analysts.”
