Thank You for All of Your Help!

IR Immersion: We were able to cover a wide range of material in a day – everything from the basics of how the capital markets work, to key strategic issues we’re working through as a company. Our CEO and CFO were engaged throughout the day and have been quoting what “Rebecca said” since the session.

VP | Manufacturing

We selected Corbin Advisors to run our Perception Study because they were able to provide both data-driven benchmarking analysis and high-quality qualitative feedback from a wide range of investors.

This was a great process that will allow us to elevate our IR messaging and jump start our Investor Day preparations.

This Will Help as we Position for Our Investor Day

The executive out-brief of the study allowed for a third party (not internal IR) to provide objective feedback to the leadership team as we prepare for Investor Day.

VP | Healthcare

Successful Investor Day

I spent 13 years on the sell side before going into IR. Until last year, I had attended many Investor Days as an analyst but never ran an Investor Day. There’s so much that goes into a successful day – A/V, slides, timing of the event. It’s both content and logistics. I am a one-man operation so I need a lot of help. My company used Corbin and I would give them an A+++ or 10/10. For me, I am always concerned about the bullet I don’t see coming. Corbin had everything covered and the event went perfectly smooth. From a Perception Study to making sure the logistics were perfectly in place, to the A+ materials, Corbin was amazing.

IRO | Drug Manufacturers – Specialty & Generic

Insightful and Relevant Advice

We worked with Corbin on our first investor Perception Study. The caliber and professionalism of the team was outstanding. They provided insightful and relevant advice. I was very impressed with how quickly they grasped the unique complexities and challenges of our business. I highly recommend their services.

Great Job by the Entire Corbin Team!

The Corbin team did a great job understanding our business and strategy and then created insightful content to highlight the value drivers.

CFO | Consumer Discretionary

A Market Differentiator

What has been so great with Corbin, and truly a market differentiator, is that they are not trying to tell us what our story should be. Rather, they are helping us craft the story of who we already are – leaving room for evolution and growth.

CFO | Communications Services

Unique, Highly Engaging, and Value-added Immersive Learning Experience

As part of my executive onboarding as a new public company CFO with some prior Street-facing and IR experience, I had the opportunity to work directly with Rebecca Corbin and participate in Corbin’s Executive IR Immersion workshop. Rebecca is a subject matter expert and cultivated a unique, highly engaging, and value-added immersive learning experience that enabled me to accelerate quicker in my new role. For any executive looking to obtain a deep, data-driven approach to understanding the buy side, the factors that impact valuation, and investor relations best practices and strategies for outperformance, I highly recommend Rebecca Corbin’s course.

President | Industrial Distribution

Excellent Guidance

Corbin helped our team construct an Investor Day agenda, presentations and product showcases that raised awareness about our company and addressed concerns or high priority questions from within our investor base. Starting with the Perception Study, which was of a very high quality, was key to giving the executive team confidence that our efforts were aligned with the need.

Corbin’s expertise, guidance, and collaborative style were impeccable. It was truly a pleasure to work together.

IRO | Major Chemicals

Corbin Provides Tremendous Value

The Voice of Investor® Perception Study is a thorough, relevant, and actionable resource for the IR team. The key recommendations distill a lot of data into specific changes in IR messaging that can be made immediately. At the same time, it’s easy to dive into the raw data and understand the context of participant responses. To have done the Perception Study over the last 7 years adds the perspective of how the company’s evolved over time and gives us a valuable measure of our results.

CFO | Industrial

She Knew Us and What We Needed To Do To Get to the Other Side and We Did

Recently, we were the target of a leading activist after announcing a transformational acquisition. Having worked with us for many years, Rebecca played an instrumental role on our activist defense team, providing an objective, insights-based perspective, which was accurate and helped shape our position.

What I value a lot about Rebecca is her direct approach. She is not afraid to voice a view that is different than what management or other advisors think. She is an expert in her field and always has her clients’ best interest in mind. I’m happy to say we were able to navigate the activist waters successfully and Rebecca was a big part of that. She knew us and what we needed to do to get to the other side and we did. Rebecca’s expert knowledge of investor relations, investor views and expectations, as well as her strategic mindset around communicating with the Street truly set her apart.

CEO | Basic Materials

They Go the Extra Mile to Make it Actionable

What I value about the firm more broadly is they stay very grounded in what the data is telling them. They are not rote in their interpretation of the data. Corbin provides good color and experienced, practical and grounded perspective.

CEO | Industrial

Corbin’s Deep Understanding of the Buy Side, Expertise and Candid Advice Led to a More Successful IPO

Rebecca and her team were recommended to us by a colleague, as they have a reputation of delivering real value. We engaged Corbin ahead of our IPO as an independent, strategic advisor and their team was instrumental in developing an enhanced investment thesis and roadshow presentation, as well as preparing us to pitch our equity story. Rebecca was personally engaged and gave us insightful, research-based perspective. We continue to work with Corbin today and have continued to realize value with their guidance and support.

CFO | Consumer Cyclical / Luxury Goods

The Work That Corbin Performed Was Very Thorough and Provided Us With Valuable Insights Into Our Business and Our Stakeholders

However, what I valued the most from our engagement was the very specific and actionable recommendations that the Corbin team provided. This allowed us to quickly implement some changes to our approach and produced positive results almost immediately.

HR | Industrial Distribution

Helped Guide Us Through the Entire Process

The team was knowledgeable of the process and kept us on track for a successful Investor Day. The Corbin team were a pleasure to work with and provided critical feedback for maximum results. They helped us tell our authentic story.

IRO | Technology

We Continue To Be Super Impressed by the Material Coming From Corbin

The webinar was great, with key insights presented clearly and with an obvious passion for excellence. I receive and review lots of IR-related content and yours consistently rises to the top in terms of both information and presentation.

CEO | Industrial Products / Water Treatment

Rebecca and Her Team Are A+, Impressive, Responsive, and Insightful

Corbin has a unique, proprietary capability not found elsewhere. They have supported our company on numerous fronts, as we were preparing for an IPO and in other capacities, creating real advantage for us. And they are wonderful and fun to associate with!

CEO | Renewable Energy

We Worked With Corbin Advisors on Our Inaugural Sustainability Report, Which Laid the Groundwork for an Impactful Investor Day

What stands out about working with the Corbin ESG team is the quality of execution, from the initial ESG strategy session to the final designed report and activation strategy. The team’s focus on value creation throughout the process helped us identify the issues that matter to our stakeholders, and to develop an authentic ESG story that will advance not only our sustainability goals but also fundamentally help us advance our business objectives, including attracting and retaining talent, appealing to a broader investor base and generating more opportunities.

CFO | Industrial

Rebecca and Her Team Deliver a Unique and Important Perspective That Has Been Instrumental

As we prepare for earnings, Rebecca and her team offer an external perspective that both challenges and validates our assumptions. They help us throughout the earnings process with advice and feedback as we develop our prepared remarks, and they provide insight on potential stakeholder reactions and Q&A. We leverage their Quarterly Sentiment Reports for valuable insights on the market and the issues that are most important to investors. Rebecca and her team deliver a unique and important perspective that has been instrumental in helping us refine our strategy and communicate more effectively with our stakeholders.

CFO | Healthcare

They Were Instrumental in Providing Valuable Advice to Senior Management

We have worked with Rebecca and the Corbin team in different capacities over the past several years where they consulted and provided valuable insights into significant corporate events that impacted our strategy. This included strategic acquisitions, spin-offs and divestitures and they were instrumental in providing valuable advice to senior management on key messaging for these transactions to ensure they were clearly understood and why they drove shareholder value.

Rebecca has also led an effort to capture in-depth insights and perceptions from our shareholders and top investors which we have used to improve our overall external messaging to shareholders and analysts.

CEO | Basic Materials

They Are Experts When It Comes to the Institutional Investor Landscape

We have worked with Corbin Advisors over several years. Rebecca and her team offer a unique blend of specialized experiences, data-driven strategic thinking and tactical execution.

They are experts when it comes to the institutional investor landscape and are highly attuned to changes in sentiment and expectations. This real-time knowledge has allowed us to more effectively communicate with investors over time, and especially in our earnings releases and calls. Every quarter, they provide company-specific and broader market insights that help us sharpen our messages. They work with a sense of urgency and provide constructive feedback.

IRO | Industrial

I Wouldn’t Use Anyone Else in the Future

Having worked in IR for more than 20 years, I have hired all of the major perception firms at various times. None compare to Corbin. I found Corbin to be highly strategic, thoughtful, prepared, and thorough. From our planning meetings to the execution of the study to the findings and recommendations, Corbin’s work was outstanding.

IRO | Healthcare

I Know We Can Count on Corbin When We Need High Quality and Want To Raise the Bar

We have worked with Rebecca on several occasions, including on a tight timeframe to announce significant corporate events, including two major transactions. It is always a pleasure working with her and the Corbin team. They are reliable, responsive and fast, and they bring a great work ethic and strategic point of view to ensure our management team is well-prepared.

IRO | REIT

I Highly Recommend Corbin

Corbin has delivered consistent value in the Perception Studies they have performed for us (going on our third study) as well as much needed assistance in preparing us for our Investor Days. This last event would not have been the success it was without Rebecca and her team leading this task. Rebecca is very professional and clearly an expert in her field.

CEO | Industrial

Strategic Partner

I want to thank, especially today, Corbin Advisors who helped us with the material generation and preparation

Portfolio Manager | Industrial

When I See a Company With Room for Improvement, I Often Suggest They Reach Out to Corbin

I have participated in several Corbin perception studies over the years and I’ve seen Corbin’s influence as a consultant and advisor to some of the companies in which we have invested. Corbin knows these businesses well and I have been impressed by their clear and effective communication with the investment community. I think this is a winning proposition for all constituents.
