Communicating Through COVID – Part III: Q2’20 Earnings Prep & Setting the Foundation for Your Recovery

To our friends and partners –

We hope all of you and your extended families remain safe and healthy.  Last quarter we released two white papers to provide some advice to our clients and friends on how to communicate in this rapidly changing environment.  We were very excited to see that work go viral and we received some tremendous feedback from many of you.

We shared our latest piece with our clients roughly a week ago and are now releasing this information publicly to offer all of you assistance as you prepare for this critical Q2’20 earnings cycle. This obviously can’t be a one-size-fits-all white paper, but we hope it has a few pieces of perspective that will help you with your IR program through the rest of 2020.  Some of the key highlights of this paper include:

  1. A matrix to help you think about when it’s time to turn back on financial guidance (and for most of us that is not this quarter);
  2. Some practical advice to prepare for this quarter’s call, as well as another generic outline to get us all started on scripting the earnings communication;
  3. Some important advice on being careful moving forward on selective disclosure at conferences/NDRs; and,
  4. Several other important considerations.

This link below will take you to the PDF and please feel free to share it with your extended teams, board of directors, or other interested parties.  We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback and please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.
