During the most recent proxy season, companies that engaged Toppan Merrill’s consultation experts realized thousands of dollars of savings while uncovering ways to upgrade their design and messaging to communicate a more effective story.
The Toppan Merrill consultation will address:
We prepared and filed our Proxy Statement during the first week of the coronavirus shutdown, and we anticipated delay or other issues. But, Toppan Merrill went “above and beyond” and the service this year was as good as we had received in prior years. We couldn’t tell who was working from home and our changes were processed quickly and error free.
The shareholder communications team conducted a peer group analysis for our company and discovered an inefficient proxy layout and suggested we embrace "plain English" content. By changing our layout and content, we've increased voter participation and created a lighter document which saved us $32,000 in production and mailing costs.
Toppan Merrill’s annual meeting and proxy solutions are built through our time-tested, consultative approach. This approach is proven to save time, money and minimize impact to workflow.
Coupled with cutting-edge design expertise, industry-leading print capabilities and multi-channel distribution, we can expand what’s possible with your annual meeting and proxy solutions.
