Investor Relations Strategic Plan
Along with encouraging existing shareholder engagement, the Investor Relations Strategic Plan also includes a conscious effort to market the opportunity to become an investor. Beginning in 2019, Minburn Communications will actively promote awareness and value of becoming a shareholder, the impact made to the community and how an investment from a local customer helps support the quality of life within the community. The message will be shared via presentations, marketing materials, new customer welcome packets, lunch and learns and more.
For over 115 years, Minburn Communications has realized a transition of the shareholder profile. More and more owners of the company are non-voting, live outside the exchange, do not subscribe to any of the services offered, and have little to no comprehensive understanding of the company or its accomplishments. Additionally, a few current owners have expressed interest in selling their stock but struggle to find buyers. These scenarios raise concern for the long-term viability and sustainability of the organization. As of year-end 2018, the company is aware of over 3,000 shares for sale.
