Introducing the Perfect Annual Report

ENERGY21_v

The adoption of the SEC’s “Notice and Access” regulation in 2008 brought many changes to corporate issuers’ processes surrounding the annual shareholder meeting: specifically the required delivery of the annual report and proxy materials to shareholders.

Notice and Access gives shareholders the choice to opt-in to receive all annual materials online, rather than hardcopy via snailmail. This web-inizing of the proxy environment (referred to as eproxy) saves companies substantial dollars.

From this, thousands of companies of all capitalizations, have downgraded or totally eliminated the stand-alone “glossy marketing” annual report and evolved to a “10-K Wrap,” which is simply the black and white printing of their SEC 10-K bound inside a full-color branded front and back cover.

A casualty of Notice and Access has been the marketing opportunity the printed annual report can literally deliver. This opportunity is particularly poignant when considering that 47% of investors report they still prefer hardcopy annual reports. This 47% is an incredible opportunity to creatively expand the investor relations content narrative beyond the raw year-end numbers. Clever, growth-focused companies have found a balance between keeping within an intelligent “Notice and Access” budget without forfeiting the marketing presence of a well-designed annual report.

The Perfect Annual Report is an intelligent value

One company that has obviously found this balance is Energy XXI, an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company. A non-calendar year reporting NASDAQ-listed company, Energy XXI recently released their 2014 printed annual report, delivering not only the required 10-K file, but a beautifully published book that visually presents their company’s vitality and voice.

As shown in this video, the production value is superb: full color, full-bleed cover stock followed by nine pages of financial results summary, CEO letter and easy to read graphics of key growth metrics… all in full color. The remaining 10-K portion is beautifully typeset and printed black on an opaque white stock. For extra presence and “zing,” the book is fine-finished with a perfected bound spine that – along with isolated graphic elements on the front cover – has a “spot varnish.”

Certainly, there is no “best practice” for an annual report. Each company must decide for themselves what they need the piece to do, in context to audience, to delivery and to overall cost. Energy XXI set their strategy: fortunately for us, the intelligent value of our print services matched which allowed them to design and publish an end product we are all proud of.

Intelligent value for annual reports is the correct balance of quality, quantity and cost. Please visit this page (click here) to audit your 2013 annual report to budget for your 2014 annual report.

Planets align. International issuers win.

Deutsche Bank, OTC Markets and our virtual investor conference platform align to help ADRs  (American depositary receipt) meet North American investors.

An ADR is a stock that is bought and sold on a US exchange but are shares in a non-US corporation. Deutsche Bank sponsors ADRs… allowing them to trade like any US-stock. Many ADRs, from mega-cap on down, list on the OTC Markets to get great exposure into the North American equities markets.

Tomorrow, Deutsche Bank is hosting their quarterly virtual investors conference, bringing 12 companies to the eyes and ears of a targeted investor audience -  including OTC Markets’.  Proudly, Deutsche Bank is working with us for their event technology as well as targeted investor distribution.

“ADRs offer U.S.-based investors remarkable portfolio opportunities.  Unfortunately, many of these international issuers are unfamiliar on how to reach these potential shareholders. Deutsche Bank has demonstrated great leadership by creating its quarterly virtual investor conference series.

Giving CEOs and their senior teams real-time, open interaction with U.S.-based investors is an important first step for building long relationships.”

Six bits of printers’ jargon to know when planning your 2014 annual report

No one expects Investor Relations Officers or Corporate Secretaries to be experts at purchasing commercial printing. That said, it’s safe to have a general understanding for the process – to assure your expectations are met.

Below are the six key variables that Investor Relations Officers and Corporate Secretaries will be asked to make decisions around that will impact the production and price of an annual report.

VINTAGE_AR_AUDIT

Each year, issuers’ ask us to audit their previous annual report print production to
set a budget for their upcoming one. Click here and upload your 2013 PDF.

ONE

4-color… is full color. The only distinction now is whether you print on a traditional offset printing press or digital print. The variables you will discuss when shopping depend on your report’s creative design and print quantity.

  • Traditional offset printing is generally used for larger print quantities or very exact color (brand) matching by adding a 5 and 6th color.
  • Digital printing is, simply put, a really high-end version of the HP printer sitting on your desk. Perfect for smaller quantities and rush scenarios.

Both these technologies will require a final CMYK (also known as four color process) file from you. CMYK is cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Online annual reports are RGB: red, green and blue. Digital cameras, television screens and computer monitors use the RGB process to create color. Generally, a print vendor can convert a RGB file to CMYK without issue.


TWO

1-color… usually means “black ink only.” The meat of the 10-K.


THREE

Cover stock… is the thicker paper used for both the front and back covers. It is described in “pounds” and generally ranges from 65 lb to 120 lb, depending on the paper itself.

  • “Coated cover” is generally a glossy stock. Most times, you will be using 100 lb – 120 lb weight, as the glossiness makes the paper softer.
  • Uncoated cover is a matte paper, much like a business card. You may be in the 65 lb – 100 lb weight range.
  • Generally, you will print on both sides of the front cover. You will always print the back cover, often NOT the inside back cover. It costs you no more to not print on the inside back. That is a visual design choice.


FOUR

Text stock… are the pages inside of the covers. The guts.

  • It follows the same descriptions as cover stock, just much thinner weights. 20 lb – 32 lb. “Copier paper” is 24 lb-ish.


FIVE

Binding…. is how the annual report is held together

  • Saddle stitched means the annual report pages are folded in half and stapled. This physically creates a “10-K wrap.” (The front cover is the back cover; the first inside page is the same piece of paper as the last inside page and so on.)
  • Perfect bound is a flat glued spine. It can be more expensive; however it allows for any configuration of paper/pages and presents itself in a very finished manner.


SIX

Sheets of paper vs. page count… can be confusing. Financial printers think in terms of “pages” not paper. A simple example is if you take an 11″x 17″ piece of paper and fold it in half, that’s a four page 8.5″ x 11″ annual report. Get it?

  • This only “really” matters for saddle stitched annual reports. The page count needs to be in a multiple of four. If you come up short, we print “This page is intentionally left blank.”

————————————————————————————-

Caveat Emptor: As once reported in an expose’ by both the New York Times and CFO Magazine, the “financial print industry” has had questionable purchasing and billing practices. It is against this environment that Vintage has emerged as the intelligent value.

ACTION ITEM!

Click here to audit your previous annual report printing to benchmark your upcoming production. You will need to upload the PDF of last year’s annual report. (We will also send you examples of our printed work. )

Have a great day.
