Engage investors before, during, and after a critical transaction.

The ultimate objective behind acquiring or merging with another firm or divesting part of a business is to drive stock prices higher. Achieving this goal requires effective messaging and engagement of current and potential stockholders well before and after a deal is made. Clermont Partners helps you take a holistic approach to transaction communications and build investor confidence in your strategic business decisions.   

Even the most strategic business transactions can’t succeed without investor buy-in.  

Mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and spinoffs are only genius business moves if investors say they are. Effectively communicating your rationale and your plan to increase long-term shareholder value in a way that engages investors and builds their confidence requires much more than day-of expertise.  

Plan for the flawless execution of your announcement.  

At Clermont Partners, we help businesses take a holistic approach to transaction communications that starts well before a deal is ever announced. We start with researching investor sentiment and anticipating concerns. We build this insight into your transaction messaging strategy, while also mapping out how the transaction fits into your long-term growth plan and aligns with your overall investment narrative. We carefully message the transaction to address stakeholders’ needs and clearly articulate the deal’s expected value creation over the long term. On announcement day, you will be well prepared to engage your investors and garner their support.  

Post announcement, we work with you to successfully address all the aftermath communications required quarter by quarter, such as setting milestones around longer-term integration. We continue to build and tell the story of how the transaction fits into your growth plans and how it is delivering value for your shareholders.  

Build long-term support that drives value.  

Of course, any deal will result in some level of shareholder turnover. While our messaging strategy minimizes this, we also help you create a plan for engaging new investors who will be attracted to the deal. By optimizing your shareholder base and ensuring its aligned with your ongoing growth plans, we position you to maximize valuation long term.

“The management team did a solid job communicating this market moving deal because of Clermont Partner’s communications strategy. The high multiple paid is tough to defend, but their message and guidance made me slightly more positive on the transaction.”
