Winning support for corporate actions or shareholder votes - including General Meetings, takeovers, activist events, proxy defences and corporate governance issues - can present considerable challenges for listed companies and should never be left to chance.

Link Group's D.F. King and Orient Capital businesses are experts in stakeholder engagement. We provide comprehensive global advisory and execution services for equity and debt transactions, as well as support in insolvency matters.

In proxy solicitation, we are renowned worldwide for securing shareholder support in corporate actions involving shares. We specialise in designing, organising and executing multi-channel communication campaigns, where our role is to improve shareholders' understanding of issues, as well as their voting participation.

In debt transactions, we help companies and their advisors navigate through the difficulties associated with locating and communicating with their bondholders. We are experts in tender and exchange offers, consent solicitations, bondholder meetings and complex debt restructurings.

In insolvency matters, our specialist team works with practitioners to manage the risks and complexities of cases including administrations, company voluntary arrangements, administrative receiverships, law of property receiverships, insolvent liquidations and solvent liquidations.

  • Proxy solicitation - predicting the outcomes of corporate actions is difficult. Outbound shareholder communication campaigns are designed to improve shareholders' understanding of issues, as well as their voting participation. Our campaigns deliver transparency of shareholder intentions before events take place, improving the likelihood of successful results.
  • Debt transactions - we have unparalleled experience in bond management transactions, providing practical solutions and advice regarding transaction mechanics and execution. The accurate identification of bondholders provides the foundation for successful transactions. We proactively manage the communications process, directly soliciting bondholders to increase the certainty of outcomes.
  • Insolvency solutions - not all companies do as well as expected. During insolvency matters we offer practitioners superior processing, communication and record maintenance solutions for all types of appointment. We leverage our infrastructure and capacity to efficiently and cost-effectively manage their dealings with creditors and stakeholders.
