Capital transactions are the engine of change – many parties are involved and they are usually carried out under huge time pressure. There is much at stake. So the pressure is high to convince stakeholders of the investor’s growth story. Different groups aim to benefit from the success or failure of the transaction. They try to exert influence. And last but not least, the special interests of business or industry are often expressed in sometimes hectic media reporting. So while a convincing growth story is certainly necessary, professional management of the challenging communications requirements and target groups – from investors and shareholders to banks and consultants to supervisory bodies and policy-makers is also essential. And the pressure to communicate does not end with the transaction. For lasting success it is important that the workforce, shareholders and other stakeholders continue to stand by the company or investor after the transaction.
