The challenge for any public company is to earn the credibility it requires to gain access to the capital markets and to maximize its valuation in order to lower the cost of capital to grow the business. Smaller companies focused on growth have an even tougher time gaining research coverage, obtaining institutional support and generally getting the attention of investors. They need to be very proactive in communicating with the “street” and they need to have a differentiating business proposition. This requires effective investor relations.
