Having organized numerous earnings events with customers, Karin and the CSS team have a solid understanding of what it takes to successfully update your IR website for your next earnings presentation.
Try to plan for your earnings announcement – make sure that your website gets updated with the event details so that they?re easy to find.
Share your plan with whoever manages your site content and make sure they?re aware of the changes you?re planning to make.
Check in with the person who manages your site and make sure they?re confident with the updates they?ll be making on the day of. Make sure they know what time your earnings release is crossing the wire, and what time all documents should be published to your website.
Don?t make it too complicated, make sure your events section is up to date with the webcast link, and add in the Press release link and your presentation PDF if you provide one as these become available publicly. Also make these documents available on a Financial Reports for future use.
Check everything once it?s been published live on the website.
