Since 2014, we have seen major shifts in the IPO market, with leading companies in Technology, Healthcare and Industrials making the move into the capital markets. Q4 is proud to have been a major player in the IR services market, working with many pre IPO companies on the launch of their investor website and continuing to work with those companies through their earnings presentations and further site development.
In the coming months, we see many more companies getting ready to take the IPO leap and we wanted to offer them an easy way to obtain the expertise and technology they need to deliver strong investor relations right out of the gate.
With that in mind, I’m pleased to announce the launch of our new Q4 IPO Subsidy Program. We have designed this new program to provide companies going public with all the website and webcast tools they need prior to and after their IPO. The Q4 IPO Subsidy Program consists of a two-year web hosting subscription, a two-year webcasting subscription covering four earnings events per year, full integration with our innovative news, Intelligence and Client Services app, Q4 Touch as well as a dedicated Client Services Specialist for ongoing support and maintenance. All of this is available free of charge for two years for any NYSE or NASDAQ listed IPO company.
In the last two years, we have worked with over 160 IPO clients. In 2014 alone, we handled webhosting and webcasting for nearly 20% of all NYSE/NASDAQ IPOs. As a result, we know about the pressures companies face in the months and weeks leading up to their IPO. Preparing for an IPO often ends up being a juggling act between dealing with lawyers and banks and road shows to meet with institutional investors. All of this takes up a large portion of time and can take away from focusing on planning for early stage online investor communication.
Seeing this stress first hand, we have created the Q4 IPO Subsidy Program to provide companies with the support they need on the online IR communications front. With our experience, we know what needs to happen regarding IR website content and launch. After an initial kick off call we are off to the races, pulling together content and designs and creating a leading IR website. We’re able to make suggestions and recommendations to ensure your investors get the most out of your website.
Our IPO clients also gain access to our amazing service team. Each IPO client receives their own dedicated Client Service Specialist (CSS). Our CSS team has years of experience with IPO clients and acts as your main point of contact at Q4. They will be in charge of managing your earnings webcasts, organizing and monitoring investor calls and ensuring your website is full of the best practices and always up to date.
With our experience in the space, the goal of the Q4 IPO Subsidy Program is to provide IPO companies with the support system, ensuring that their IR website and webcasting needs are covered leading up to and in the months and years after our IPO. We are committed to growing with our clients and feel that the Q4 IPO Subsidy Program is a great way to build a strong, lasting relationship with our clients from the very beginning.

I couldn’t be more excited to launch this program and looking forward to working with many more incredible companies on their journey of going public.
