Every day we work alongside both listed and unlisted companies to understand their priorities and to help them solve problems. This case study showcases how we assisted a client to successfully overcome challenges related to their beneficial holder analysis which helped to secure them a positive AGM voting result for the company.

The client

At the centre of this story is an Australian-based company that has been operating in the travel industry for over 15 years. Specialising in domestic and international travel products and services, they support companies both locally and abroad. This listed company has over 500 employees and more than 15,000 shareholders.

Western Australia

The challenge

When COVID-19 brought the travel industry to a standstill, our client, like many companies across Australia, had to focus on safeguarding the future of their business. With regulations and restrictions changing every day, our client decided to explore new avenues to help them adapt and continue to move their business forward amid the uncertainty.

Our client faced two main challenges, which led them to look for a share registry partner adequately equipped to provide informed, timely support.

    Challenge #1

    They were unable to develop effective investor engagement strategies due to limited insight into their beneficial holder base. Their existing reporting solution used incomplete and outdated information.

  • voting

    Challenge #2

    They needed to achieve positive voting outcomes at their Annual General Meeting (AGM) but were unable to confidently plan ahead due to constantly changing regulations.

Computershare worked with the Company Secretary and Chief Financial Officer to understand the exact nature of the challenges they were facing. After a comprehensive review, we offered the following solutions:
