Next earnings cycle – same pandemic – Continuing to Manage Street Expectations in a Prolonged Pandemic and Economic Uncertainty

New Earnings Cycle – Same Pandemic
Continuing to Manage Street Expectations

New Date:  July 13, 2020

Guidance practices are all over the map. Company forecasts are shrouded in uncertainty.  Sell-side estimates are changing with the wind. Inconsistencies by estimates aggregators are creating a monumental task for IROs trying to manage the data manually.

As we enter the next earnings cycle, still under the dark cloud of a pandemic, managing Street expectations and navigating investor communications within the legal confines of Reg FD can be daunting.  We’re here to help!

When: July 13,  2020
Time:  11:30 – 12:30 pm central time

On the July 13 webinar, you’ll get the latest thinking on:

  • Staying on top of operational themes and analysis both internally and externally
  • Effective methods to benchmark internal scenarios against changing estimates
  • Breaking down the wall between IR and FP&A to collaborate more effectively on the same datasets
  • Identifying gaps, mistakes or broken formulas in analyst models
  • Seeing the sell-side perspective and research process

Join us for a robust discussion as we unwrap workflow solutions to efficiently dissect and understand earnings models, navigate the abundance of detail and gain practical insights in working through your next earnings cycle and beyond.
