Defend your business with a better offense.

Understanding and proactively addressing vulnerabilities is the best way to build shareholder confidence and deter activist engagement with your stock. At the same time, an ‘offensive’ approach prepares you to immediately launch a formidable defense and quickly neutralize the opposition’s arguments should the need arise. Clermont Partners helps you activist-proof your stock through strategic communications and proactive investor engagement.  

Nothing keeps executives awake at night more than the threat of activism.

An activist entering your stock can change the trajectory of the company you’ve worked diligently to grow, not to mention the course of your own career. Remember that activists prey on vulnerabilities. Keeping them at bay requires honest assessment of potential issues along with a fact-based plan for addressing areas of concern through strategic communications with both shareholders and the media.  

Stay ahead of the risk.

Clermont Partners specializes in helping your business identify issues that could attract activists, and then proactively crafting and sending the right messages to maintain investor confidence, even during potentially volatile situations. We do the legwork and in-depth research to understand investor sentiment and shareholder concerns. We research and anticipate the opposition’s stance. And we work strategically to engage your top investors and sell-side analysts by delivering the messages they need to hear about your strategy and your actions to enhance shareholder value.  

Our senior level counselors work shoulder-to-shoulder with you to stay ahead of activists and to communicate strategically and convincingly with your shareholders. In short, we work harder and smarter than the activists to build support for your management team and your strategy. And we help you successfully fend off activism before it takes hold.  

Protect your stock and valuation over the long-term.

With our committed, independent focus on your organization’s best interests, you’ll be well prepared to maintain investor engagement and sustain confidence in your executive team and growth strategy. Across our history, we’ve helped every client we’ve served achieve positive outcomes in these challenging situations. See how we can help you proactively plan for and more effectively communicate the right investor narrative to protect your business.
