financial communications

Transactions—whether mergers, acquisitions, asset sales, or others—are usually the most crucially important events in the evolution of any organization. Today, transactions are highly publicized, involve more external players and are reported like sports and elections—that means there’s more risk than ever before. Deal risks are omnipresent—executives and their reputations, regulators, governments, financiers and investors all have a stake.

H+K has advised on dozens of successful business combinations, investments in highly strategic sectors, takeovers and proxy battles. All the while, our transaction advisers maintain healthy relationships with governments, banks, legal advisers, regulators and stakeholders.

That is why, when Canada’s most prestigious companies and organizations contemplate the strategic financial transactions that put their corporate strategy and reputation on the line, they turn to us.

We have a deep understanding of Canada’s regulatory environment, analyst and investor expectations, as well as the media environment for mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, spin-offs, privatizations, proxy battles and IPOs. We develop a compelling narrative to support investment stories and implement a proactive approach to quickly react to market speculation, unfavourable analyst reports, leaks or lawsuits. Open, transparent and timely communication to target audiences is essential to maintain and protect corporate reputation.
