Avoid making selective disclosures to a few analysts

Book Value
Investor Relations
M.S. Anand


IR is no longer merely a means to meet the information requests of analysts and investors, writes M.S. Anand in ‘Investor Relations’ ( http://www.icfaipress.org/). “While a majority of companies are still at a nascent stage in developing an IR process, barely meeting the minimal disclosure standards, a few others have evolved strategies and are continually disseminating valuable information.”

Investor-centric companies have an edge in getting better valuations, he adds.
Apart from building relationships and communicating info, the IR professional should get the perception audit done, insists Anand. Such an audit provides feedback on how the market views the company.
