International Proxy Solicitation
Morrow is a world leader in proxy solicitations for Annual General Meetings and Extraordinary General Meetings. We provide global shareholder identification, ownership profiles, and voting projections to non-U.S. domiciled companies and assist them in scheduling proxy solicitations and presentation of their materials. Our turnkey distribution services enable timely delivery of proxy materials to ensure that no shareholders are left uninformed, and as a result, disenfranchised.
International Shareholder Identification
We provide the most detailed and accurate level of shareholder identification for non-U.S. domiciled companies available. Based on our knowledge and our long-term working relationships with the institutions, their custodians and intermediaries that typically invest in foreign equities, we have access to information that enables us to provide accurate shareholder intelligence. This knowledge is then interpreted to provide voting information to our client.
In order to inform clients of current institutional positions and changes on a real-time basis, Morrow provides ongoing shareholder identification and stock surveillance services for non-U.S. domiciled firms with American Depository Receipts (ADRs). This comprehensive analysis is made in conjunction with an assessment of a firm’s ordinary shares, providing a complete view of an issuer’s outstanding shares.
Global Advisory Services
Our international clients are increasingly interested in shareholder outreach and knowing more about the voting tendencies of key debt holders and security owners. Likewise, investors are demonstrating more involvement in the content and substance of proxy matters. With greater industry consolidation, cross-border takeovers and more international mergers and acquisitions on the horizon, Morrow’s strategic consulting expertise is in high demand. Our global advisory team can help you anticipate and prepare for cross-border takeovers, international mergers and acquisitions that involve your shareholders.
Global Corporate Governance
An increase in foreign ownership of securities has led companies to re-evaluate their corporate governance practices. Shareholders expect independence and integrity on the part of their directors as well as reasonable compensation and incentive practices. As these factors come into play at shareholder meetings and in proxy votes, the movement to a single global standard for corporate governance has become more apparent, and Morrow is ideally positioned to offer guidance in this arena.
