It’s all about positioning

Stock market

Whether it’s a multi-billion acquisition or a new public issuer’s market debut, it’s critical that the market and your stakeholders believe in the value proposition. NATIONAL has advised on some of the most significant transactions in the Canadian capital markets and regularly provides regulatory and strategic communications support transactions in a range of sectors, across Canada and beyond, with the support of our global network.

We ensure that every transaction is effectively communicated, with a strategic rationale, solid metrics and a story that resonates with investors, analysts, media, employees, regulators, and government.

Whether you are buying or selling, we help you prepare for all aspects of mergers and acquisitions, to prepare, announce and manage change. And, in the case of sensitive or hostile situations, we stand up for our client, offering a thorough (and candid) analysis of the environment, a strategic vision and a tailored approach to engage and convince stakeholders.
