IRO Survey: Read our report on how companies are adapting to the crisis
The IR Society recently conducted a short survey of its IRO members on how companies are seeking to adapt their reporting and investor communications during the crisis.
The IR Society recently conducted a short survey of its IRO members which has provided valuable insights into how companies are seeking to adapt their reporting and investor communications during the crisis, and also includes a look at some of the near-term measures that have been taken to preserve corporate balance sheets.
Among the findings, almost half of IROs confirmed that virtual meetings represented less than 10% of investor engagement before the crisis, while 80% indicated that they would be conducting a greater number of virtual roadshows and meetings in the future. 42% of companies surveyed have temporarily reduced or donated board-level salaries as a result of COVID-19, with examples detailed in the report. Of those companies, 60% have also cut their dividend.
