Private meetings between management and/or the Investor Relations Officer (IRO) of a listed company and (current or potential) investors or analysts, are better known as "one-on-one" meetings.
Roadshows and one-on-one meetings
Whereas a roadshow consists of a number of organised one-on-one meetings during one or more days at a particular moment (e.g. after publication of results), individual one-on-ones can be organised, usually on the request of an investor, throughout the year.
Communicating with institutional investors, individual shareholders and the financial community is key to create a fair valuation of the company’s stock.
A one-on-one is not an obligatory meeting, but an additional meeting to give investors more background to certain developments, results or strategy, which gives them a better sense of the company’s direction.
During these meetings it is important that a company does not provide any price sensitive information.
