Richmond, VA (May 16, 2011) The PrecisionIR Group and Bloomberg Markets magazine are joining forces on a new integrated media platform targeting institutional investors, Bloomberg Markets Spotlight, which will launch September 1, 2011.
Combining the unsurpassed reach of Bloomberg Markets among institutional investors with PrecisionIR’s multi-media investor outreach assets, Bloomberg Markets Spotlight is an investor relations showcase for public companies, providing an innovative way for companies to target and communicate with institutional investors.
Bloomberg Markets Spotlight will be a stand-alone website built on media-rich content capabilities and on-demand webcasting, presenting public companies committed to increasing their stock liquidity and extending their shareholder base among investors. Content will include road show investor conference presentations, earnings reports, analyst day highlights, CEO interviews, corporate development overviews and much more. Participating companies receive substantial, upfront promotion for their presentation followed by ongoing exposure via a searchable directory, optimized for audience building.
The website will be promoted with an ongoing campaign in Bloomberg Markets magazine, and additional audience building generated by PrecisionIR’s proprietary investor marketing engine.
PrecisionIR will take the lead on client sales and services as a core component of its IR services. Due to expected demand among corporate clients, PrecisionIR has established a rolling closing schedule. Contracts for the September launch will be due in by June 1.
"Bloomberg Markets is the most potent name in finance, business and financial media," says Michael Pepe, CEO of PrecisionIR Group. "The magazine's 355,000 global subscribers offer the highest concentration of financial services professionals including fund managers, brokers, dealers and investment bankers – an essential audience for IR professionals.."
