Broadridge, a technology services company focused on global capital markets, is the market leader enabling secure and accurate processing of information for communications and securities transactions among issuers (public companies), investors and financial intermediaries.
Improved corporate communication results in significantly higher levels of participation from investors and can save companies expenses associated with traditional meetings. In Broadridge’s 2008 annual shareholders meeting, fewer than 10 attendees showed up. Only three asked questions and none of the attendess voted.
The Forum affords investors a convenient, secure forum for sharing ideas year round. At Broadridge’s 2010 annual meeting held with the technology, over 180 investors attended “virtually,” five times as many people asked questions, and 22 people voted their shares online.
