E & E COMMUNICATIONS provides the smaller company with the level of strategic planning and day-to-day investor and public relations services that larger companies demand. As one of a select group of clients, you will always deal directly with Paul Knopick, E & E COMMUNICATIONS founder and principal, in contrast to retaining a larger PR/IR firm, at which the smaller client routinely interacts with an inexperienced associate. Your company will benefit from Knopick’s 25 years of experience in public and investor relations in some of the highest profile industries – nuclear energy, pharmaceuticals, managed care, and tobacco. Knopick was a key member of senior management teams that successfully handled significant investor and public relations crises at three multi-billion dollar corporations. He was also an award-winning reporter and editor. You will be able to reach us anytime. E & E COMMUNICATIONS understands entrepreneurs and knows that the job doesn't always present itself between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. You will never be charged extra costs. E & E COMMUNICATIONS works with its client to establish a monthly retainer and all assignments are completed under the retainer. You will come to regard us as a valuable member of your management team.
Your strategic business priorities serve as the basis for E & E COMMUNICATIONS services. We will guide your company in developing an investor and public relations program that supports your company goals and creates shareholder value. We help define and execute communications strategies. We advise management on what creates and destroys value and assist in quantifying the likely market reaction to company actions. We serve as a conduit between your company and the investment community. We can handle shareholder calls and emails, effectively communicating the strategic value of corporation actions and accomplishments. We provide feedback in both directions – to the investment community and back to the company – and will advise management on major issues impacting valuation. We seek analyst coverage for your company and target funds to strengthen the base of long-term holders of the stock. We attract individual investors who believe in your company. E & E COMMUNICATIONS oversees preparation and distribution of company news releases. We pitch your stories to the media, including the national, feature, Internet and trade press. We develop story lines to make your company more attractive to the major media and financial community and effectively communicate the non-financial factors driving performance and value. We prepare targeted materials, including a corporate profile, for the media and potential investors and provide continuous communications that emphasize the key strengths and competitive advantages of your company's management and business plan.
