NEW YORK—KCSA Strategic Communications has launched an investor relations application called The IR App, a turnkey mobile app available to all publicly traded companies and is available for download at Apple’s app store for the iPhone and iPad.
By providing a ticker symbol, a public company can have its own customized app available for download. Retail and institutional investors then have access to automated, real-time stock price information (via live data feeds), press releases, SEC filings, analyst coverage, corporate documents (fact sheets, presentations, etc.), videos, audiocast conference calls, upcoming events and company contact information.
Companies also receive a proprietary and secure contact management system through which they can upload files for instantaneous availability on their company’s customized IR App.
“As the use of social media and mobile technologies has evolved over the past couple of years, public companies have become increasingly interested in expanding their presence online and in providing their investors with easy access to information via mobile devices,” says Jeff Corbin, CEO of KCSA. “The IR App is a simple way for investors to keep abreast of critical company and stock information no matter where they are. It’s the next generation way of establishing transparency, building shareholder loyalty and expanding an investor following.”
