May 28, 2014



NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Orient Capital, a global leader in share ownership analysis, equity market intelligence, investor communication, proxy solicitation and shareholder management technology has acquired London-based King Worldwide Investor Relations, the specialist capital markets intelligence business, formerly known as Capital Precision.

King Worldwide Investor Relations provides capital markets intelligence to over 150 of the world’s largest companies and their advisors. Specializing in global shareholder analysis, global bondholder analysis, institutional targeting and investor perception work, the company’s unique and innovative skills are commissioned for both investor relations programs and corporate transactions.

Alison Owers, UK CEO of Orient Capital, said: “King Worldwide Investor Relations has an outstanding reputation for bespoke shareholder identification in capital markets where there is little or no transparency of ownership. Orient Capital’s expertise is in those markets where disclosure provisions permit detailed and highly accurate analysis of share registers. Our businesses are a perfect fit and this acquisition will allow us to spread our entire investor relations product suite across EMEA.

We will enable companies to identify and track their shareholders, and target new investors; monitor their perceptions; provide the tools they need to manage their investor relationships, including through our industry leading mobile applications; deliver communications solutions with websites and webcasting; and manage outreach campaigns to enhance shareholder engagement in corporate actions or proxy solicitation.”

Fred Stone, CEO of King Worldwide Investor Relations, added: “Orient Capital’s proprietary technology will significantly enhance our processing capability and our clients will immediately benefit from the roll-out of their unique web-based investor relations management platform, miraqle. We are excited to be joining forces with a company with such an acknowledged reputation for excellence. With Orient Capital, we will be the premier provider of investor relations services, with market leading shareholder identification and analysis.”
