“Our company had been using another IR firm, but we were not pleased with their performance. Shelton Group was introduced to us by one of our top shareholders. After we changed to Shelton Group, our analyst coverage increased from 3 to 10, which is a significant achievement considering our market cap and the liquidity of our stock. One great strength of Shelton group is that they are widely connected with the investors and analysts in the industry, and they are also very strong at positioning the company story and messaging appropriately. I would highly recommend their services to any company looking to elevate their profile among the U.S. financial community.”
Lily Dong – CFO, RDA Microelectronics
“Shelton Group’s strategic advice, consultation and tactical involvement are far superior to services we had received in the past. Since initiating an IR program with Shelton Group, our corporate messaging and positioning have greatly improved, resulting in an increased number of new stockholders as well as several new covering analysts. These efforts, combined with Shelton’s focus on investor targeting, have earned a better valuation multiple for ISSI and greater visibility among high quality, long-term investors that are well matched to our corporate strategy. Our new stockholders include several of the largest buy-side institutions in the U.S. as well as highly regarded investment managers specializing in our industry.”
John Cobb – Vice President of Finance and Administration and CFO, Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc.
Shelton Group has been my IR partner at three public companies where I served as CFO. I’ve been consistently pleased with the team’s ability to provide measurable value to our IR programs. Shelton Group also has long-standing relationships with the financial community and know all of the key players. At my current company, their investor targeting program was a key contributor to the success and visibility of our IPO and follow-on offering. They helped put us in front of the right investors and were also able to gather very valuable feedback that enabled us to properly shape the message and story.
Mark Voll – CFO, Montage Technology
“As a trusted advisor, Shelton Group provides valuable insights into our markets, our competitors and overall IR best practices. They are an important part of our IR program.”
Ed Cunningham – Vice President of IR & Corporate Communications, The Brink’s Company
“Our company has worked with Shelton Group since 2007, and over that time period, they have become a critical resource to our executive management team. They have been successful at expanding our analyst coverage as well as our shareholder base to a highly targeted group of investors. In addition, the Shelton team plays an important role in writing our earning press releases and earnings conference call communications. They are always available, responsive and consistently deliver a high quality product and service.”
Laura Mehrl – Director of Investor Relations, Diodes Incorporated
“As our full-service partner for the past 4 years, Shelton Group has been instrumental in implementing Pixelworks’ investor relations program and raising the Company’s visibility. In addition to helping ensure that our communications efforts deliver a clear and compelling message, Shelton Group’s deep understanding of Wall Street and investor sentiment has been invaluable in the form of strategic council to our management team and board. Furthermore, they have facilitated a significant expansion in our sell-side analyst coverage, which is a notable accomplishment in the micro-cap space. The Shelton team’s responsiveness and attention to detail has made them a pleasure to work with over the last several years.”
Steven L. Moore – CFO, Pixelworks, Inc.
“After a comprehensive IR agency interview process, we selected Shelton Group as our IR partner and were extremely pleased with our decision. In the first year of engagement, their team helped to successfully focus our messaging & positioning, raise our visibility with the Street and improved the quality of our investor meetings in our effort to broaden our shareholder base. After seeing the value that they added to our IR program, I wish we would have engaged them even sooner. Pericom was ultimately acquired by another company, but I look forward to the opportunity to work with the Shelton IR team again at my next company.”
Kevin Bauer – CFO, Pericom Semiconductor
