Transactions

Mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and other capital market transactions are among the most profoundly significant events a company can face, impacting all stakeholders in multiple ways. Effectively communicating the merits of each transaction directly to a company’s core audiences is one of /amo’s core skills.

Our model - combining unparalleled local expertise with global knowledge informed by more than two decades of partnership across the world’s top financial markets - has made /amo one of the world’s strategic communicators most often sought for experienced, insightful advice at such moments.

Since its foundation two decades ago, the /amo network has consistently featured as one of the world’s top advisors in the global M&A rankings. In 2019 alone, for example, we worked on almost 240 transactions worth approximately €350 billion in total.

Our work in this area includes:

M&A and Shareholder Activism

We provide high-level strategic communications advice to boards and senior executives, scenario planning for various expected and unexpected contingencies, and a full suite of communications documents tailored to each relevant audience. In these scenarios, we also frequently tap into the /amo network’s other relevant practice areas as needed, drawing on the expertise of our public affairs and transformation colleagues.

IPOs and Capital Market Transactions

The transition to becoming a public company represents an important moment to build a company’s growth story and create enthusiasm among investors, customers and employees. The /amo network helps its clients in every aspect of that process, from developing a company’s investor positioning to building its IR infrastructure, training executives for effective roadshow presentations and understanding a market’s fair disclosure rules. Our mission is to provide a solid foundation on which a company can build as it continues to grow and enter other capital market transactions moving forward.

The /amo network specializes in helping our listed clients to develop influential investor relations programs that capture their intrinsic value and future growth potential. The services we provide include earnings preparation, investor targeting and message development, using digital and social tools. Our experts come from a variety of backgrounds, including sell-side analysts and buy-side investors, giving us unique insight on how to build investor support for the long-term.
