“A seriously grown up financial PR agency.” - M&A Banker

We have handled over US$XX of IPOs, M&A and other financial transactions in APAC.

Initial Public Offerings

Since the wave of red-chip and H-share offerings in the 1990s, the opening up of China’s banking sector in the 2000s to the growth in new technology, Citigate Dewe Rogerson has been breaking new ground in financial transactions in Asia. In Singapore we have worked on XX% of companies listed in that market.

We partner a company from the first stages of an IPO, managing the equity story and the public narrative, to presentations to analysts and investors, through to launch day and celebrations.

Our team of over 60 people across six offices speak the local language and English fluently to ensure smooth communications with our clients and their target audiences.

M & A

Whether hostile or friendly, communicating a merger or an acquisition requires delicate handling of the message, the timing and the audience. We advise senior management with our years of experience on how messages are received and how to craft them, we monitor public reception real-time, and we adapt the strategy throughout a transaction to achieve a company’s objectives.

IPOs & Capital Raising

We are the most experienced IPO communications team in the industry. We’ve worked together for over 20 years on more than 300 major equity offerings, helping generate over half a trillion dollars in proceeds, more than any other agency.

We are recognised market leaders in managing media, analyst and investor relations for IPOs, secondary and dual-track sales, retail offerings and privatisations. The unrivalled depth and breadth of our expertise mean we have a unique understanding of the share offering media and commentator environment and how to manage it to deliver success, whether for UK or international developed, emerging or frontier market transactions.

M&A Communications

Continually ranking among the top 10 financial communications agencies for M&A, there isn’t a day in the year that we’re not advising on or advocating the rationale for a merger or acquisition.

From the smallest bolt-on to global company and market transforming transactions, we have the expertise, the technical know-how and the depth of experience to help build buy-in from stakeholders, investors, commentators and media.

Special Situations, Crises & Litigation

At times of exceptional corporate (and personal) stress, the need for cool heads, clear thinking and flawlessly-executed communication can be at its most acute.

We assimilate events fast to work up and action plans that can make an immediate difference and that continue to build your control as situations develop through every twist and turn.

We bring an all-round perspective to complex restructurings, crisis handling and litigation cases deriving from our long, successful track record acting both for companies as well as for bondholders, lender committees and claimants.

If you’d like to discuss our litigation experience and how we can help your situation, please contact Chris Barrie or Caroline Merrell.

Emerging & Frontier Markets

We have more than 25 years’ experience of representing Emerging Markets clients and transactions from over 30 countries across Southern, Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and the CIS, the Gulf, Africa and Asia. We are expert in developing both international and local market communications for IPOs, M&A, crisis communications, corporate profile building and investor relations.

All Emerging Markets are different, with their own specific communications challenges. In many cases we have successfully introduced companies from unfamiliar markets to global audiences, creating a differentiated and positive positioning for our clients. We have an in-depth understanding of how international investors and media perceive Emerging Markets, how to address the issues that matter most and how best communicate their strengths.

Private Equity

We like Private Equity.

And we think the opinion formers we talk to every day could learn to appreciate it a lot better. They just need the information and arguments to be able to see things a little differently – the value being created and the wider benefits.

We understand the technicalities and the nature of the sector and the sensitivities that come into play. From the focused specialists to the global leaders, we advise private equity firms domestically and internationally across a wide range of issues, positioning the firms themselves as well as their portfolio companies.

Our experience encompasses all aspects of financial and corporate communications from supporting LP engagement and fund-raising to asset sales and acquisitions, including IPOs, to corporate profile and brand development, crisis communications and reputation management to public affairs.

The depth of our sector expertise means we are also in a position to provide specific and tailored advice to portfolio companies across a multitude of different industries, leveraging the deep relationships we have with both media and with investors domestically and internationally to maximum effect.
