Hitting The Mark With Buy-Side And Sell-Side Following A Transformative Transaction
Olin Corporation (NYSE: OLN), a leading manufacturer of basic chemicals and ammunition, retained FTI Consulting to advise the company on its first analyst day following the close of its complex acquisition of the chlorine products division of The Dow Chemical Company.
Our Role With Olin Corporation
FTI Consulting worked with the management team to develop the strategy and materials to educate investors on the new assets and the benefits of the new integrated company, as well as to evolve the company’s positioning from a small-cap company to a mid-cap company in order to attract new investors and sell-side analyst coverage. FTI Consulting leveraged its in-depth knowledge of the sector, as well as engagement with its strong Wall Street network, to provide the market intelligence, preparation, and coaching the Olin management team required to execute a successful investor day.
Post-event feedback from the investment community was overwhelmingly positive. Olin shares quickly climbed from the low-teens to the mid-twenties in the period following the event as investors and sell-side analysts reevaluated the growth potential of the company.
