Market Eye, Australia’s leading specialist investor relations advisory firm, welcomes the recent release of Dr Newman’s report on Newcrest Mining’s continuous disclosure and investor relations processes and practices.

The recommendations highlight the need for a carefully planned and executed investor relations programme, particularly around dealing with analyst forecasts, the release of information to the market, and the way in which companies interact with the investment community.

Commenting on the report, Ronn Bechler, Managing Director of Market Eye, said:

“The report clearly supports strong investor relations practices within companies. Market Eye welcomes the recommendations made, and is uniquely placed to assist companies with internal investor relations teams and those without.

“Our market intelligence platforms, Market Holders

[share register analyses], Market HQ [web based investor relations management system] and the recently released Market Forecasts [web based collection and analysis of earnings forecasts] allow companies to know who holds their stock, keep track of who they’ve met with, what was said, as well as make it easier to better understand and manage broker forecasts.

“From an advisory perspective, in addition to Market Advice, Market Briefing [Q&A transcript] and Market View [perception study] assist companies in better engaging and educating the investment community, as well as identifying and addressing any potential issues from an investor relations perspective.

“The senior team at Market Eye has experience on both sides of this report, as leading equities research analysts and as leading investor relations practitioners, and as such we are uniquely placed to assist companies in implementing strong, robust investors relations practices in line with the broader lessons learned from this report.”
