In Europe, investors increasingly use direct and indirect communications approaches to influence corporate governance and management decisions. This rising tide is met with scepticism by both incumbent boards and public. Active investing is a relatively new concept to Germany and other continental European economies. MountainStream can expertly devise and manage communications campaigns that will bring forward the underlying investment logic and help shape a public environment that can support the investment strategy. As a matter of company policy, we strictly act for the investors and do not engage in defense matters.
Our advisors draw on decades of experience providing communications support to investment firms engaged in financial transactions. This includes international and cross-border investments and exits, as well as public to private and IPO transactions. In regard to portfolio companies of our private equity clients we directly support their communications needs by separate mandate.
In the context of investment campaigns we often see roadblocks suddenly appearing that can pose risks to the bottom line. These could come in the shape of public uproar, strikes, insolvency or reputational issues exploited by the opposing party. Investigations initiated by the government or the media may create a perceived crisis situation that needs expert handling. Finally, litigation and appraisal proceedings may require specific communications solutions that MountainStream can deliver.
We advise investment companies who need communications support in change-of-control situations, when reporting thresholds are reached or when domination agreements are put in place. Likewise we have vast experience with restructurings and delisting phases, dealing with multiple stakeholders.
Mountainstream is all about its team of experienced advisors.
MountainStream is a joint venture of Robert Peres Consulting LLC and WBCO Public Relations GmbH, represented by Frank Wöllstein.
