The Darrow Difference

Our Strategies Win Clients & Our Results Keep Them Around

As an expert in assisting companies across all market capitalizations with their investor relations through a myriad of stock market cycles and industry trends, Darrow Associates has found that many public companies commonly overlook basic tenets, which are integral in developing an investment community following and achieving and maintaining an appropriate share price valuation. Our Differentiators draw on our focused and experienced approach to advising our clients and implementing long term oriented IR programs to deliver sustained benefits for our clients and their respective shareholders.

For micro- and small-cap companies in particular, there is generally more volatility in share trading activity and financial performance for small cap companies. An effective investor relations program should factor in the associated ebb and flow of investor interest. Darrow Associates targets complementary investor groups to limit trading volatility, enable greater upside upon recoveries and reduce the impact of periods in decline. In 2017, the average share price performance on an annualized basis for all Darrow Associates clients was 43.9%, as compared with 13.5% for the Russell 2000.

Our Differentiators

The Darrow Difference is taking a practical approach to building out and executing your IR strategy. Many IR agencies have a tendency to list numerous goals and objectives but seldom live up to the hype or measure effectiveness. We ensure success by starting with well-defined goals and measurable milestones including, but not limited to:

 

  • Improving investor perception of your company and building credibility
  • Expanding the shareholder base by targeting appropriate Institutional investors while maintaining a retail investor component as appropriate
  • Attaining sell-side analyst coverage
  • Appreciation of share price while maintaining and/or increasing current level of trading volume
  • Increasing equity valuation in excess of operating profit growth
  • Demonstrable ROI in IR program
  • Capital Markets Influences — decreasing the cost of capital and improving access to capital
  • “We outwork, outhustle and outperform our competition. We go far beyond the “job description” for every client and we care about the business success for each of our clients. We never take for granted the trust that our clients and that our contacts place in us. At Darrow Associates, integrity, professionalism and commitment are our highest priorities in everything we do.”
    -Peter Seltzberg, Managing Director of Darrow Associates

The Investor Life Cycle IR Strategy 

Darrow Associates has pioneered a revolutionary practice that takes business and market volatility into account and delivers beyond the core competencies of most singularly-focused IR strategies.

This program is called the Investor Life Cycle IR Strategy™ and transcends the notion that public companies – regardless of their size and the exchanges on which they trade – fit a specific investor profile. Moreover, the strategy is intended to identify and implement outreach initiatives targeting complementary investor groups to replenish the “shareholder pipeline.”
