A complimentary annual meeting and proxy statement review can help you determine if your company’s processes are as cost-effective and efficient as possible. At Toppan Merrill, we offer a comprehensive review of your process to help you identify strategies to improve overall shareholder connectivity and stay on budget.
As part of the review, we will look at your peer group to share best practices in making your proxy statement more contemporary and easier to read. Plus, our team of experts will provide suggestions on ways to help improve overall shareholder communication and responsiveness.
