VirtualInvestorConferences.com Celebrates 75th Event Encouraging Direct Dialog Between CEOs and Shareholders

Evergreen and live, online conference series premiered in 2010: 2017 event dates announced

New York, NY, November 23, 2016/PRNewswire/ — PR Newswire, Vintage and BetterInvesting today released the 2017 calendar for VirtualInvestorConferences.com, the evergreen online investor conference series that directly connects individual investors, institutional investors, advisors and analysts with CEOs and senior executives at public companies.

Next month’s event, December 1st, is the 75th in the history of the online roadshow portal & virtual trade show.

At each event, VirtualInvestorConferences.com hosts up to 10 public companies in an engaging online environment. The conference series promotes a consistent, generally monthly, schedule as capital market are too dynamic to limit an equity’s real-time shareholder non-deal roadshow communications opportunities to only an annual or quarterly basis.

Fortune 500 companies and emerging growth companies alike have identified VirtualInvestorConferences.com as a key tool within their investor relations mosaic. Aflac, Inc. and three-dimensional bioprinting technology company, Organovo, are both frequent presenters.

.


“Individual investors are a meaningful part of our shareholder mix and we are committed to consistent and transparent communications with them.”

“Since their 2010 inaugural event, Aflac has regularly presented directly to Main Street at VirtualInvestorConferences.com. We find their virtual conference platform to be both convenient and cost-effective and we’re pleased to congratulate them on their milestone 75th event.”

~ Daniel Bellware, Investor Relations Manager, Aflac

“When we first introduced the online roadshow series, it was, and still is, unique in the industry,” said VirtualInvestorConferences.com co-creator John Viglotti, VP, Investor Relations Products and Services at PR Newswire. “Certainly, PR Newswire has an intrinsic understanding of news flow and news cycles, and giving public companies an easy online path to reach current and prospective investors with updated material news, other than waiting for the quarterly earnings call is, has proven itself for 75 events now,” Viglotti finished.

“Almost 80% of institutional investors watch online slide presentations. It’s the most compelling media format for a non-earnings event,” reports Bradley H. Smith, VirtualInvestorConferences.com co-creator and PR Newswire’s & Vintage’s Director of Marketing. “In October alone, the portal has had over 2,000 individual presentations viewed. We’re thrilled that starting our 7th year with such strong momentum,” said Smith.

XBRL is finally on the right path, say experts

Greater transparency, lower filing costs, reduced risks and better data quality – these long-promised benefits of XBRL are finally becoming a reality. As the XBRL landscape continues its swift evolution, we discussed the latest developments with five experts – as well as with a representative of the SEC.

ma_blog_art2016

Vintage Question > How effective do you think the SEC has been in its implementation of XBRL? Are there specific areas you think they should improve upon?

Campbell Pryde > The SEC implementation has had its ups and downs, at times because of competing priorities that resulted in less focus on the XBRL program, which in turn may have led to issuers spending less time on their XBRL submissions.

In the early days, I think they did a good job of setting the parameters, given the knowledge they had, and that was very much because of former SEC Chairman Christopher Cox, who was a big supporter of it. When Mary Schapiro was head of the Commission, the focus was no longer on data standardization, because of Dodd-Frank and the financial crisis. But now I think we’re in an era again when the SEC is paying a lot of attention to it and we do see a lot more support for it, especially amongst the SEC commissioners. I think that’s good, and you’re seeing more outreach to the market by the SEC, such as with the iXBRL initiative.

Hudson Hollister > I’ll be blunt: Up until this year, the SEC’s adoption of XBRL has been a failure. The agency adopted the XBRL format in 2009 and then phased it in over two years, but until June of this year, the agency was requiring every public company to report all of its finances twice. The SEC requires companies to report once in XBRL and then again as a document, because it never stopped collecting the old-fashioned document version of every financial statement. That dual reporting regime has prevented companies, investors, markets, and the agency itself from realizing the benefits of structured data.

Because companies are reporting twice, they have tended to separate the process they use for preparing the documents and the process they use for preparing the data. Many companies see the data reporting requirements as an additional compliance burden, so they prepare the data separately after the document is complete. This means that errors wind up in the XBRL version that might not be in the document version. This has been compounded by the fact that, except for a single public CFO letter in 2014, the SEC has never enforced the quality of the data version. So you have companies viewing the data version as an added-on compliance burden, and also the SEC not scrutinizing the data or checking it for quality, and companies know this.

For these reasons, the quality was poor for the first five or six years of XBRL reporting. It was so poor that some data intermediaries like Morningstar chose not to use it. XBRL should help investors, markets, and companies, as well as the SEC staff. It should mean better transparency and immediately actionable information for investors. If XBRL data were of good quality, an intermediary could process it almost instantaneously. But we still don’t have that, so the benefits to investors have not been realized.

xbrl_button

Jaret Klekota > Over the years, the SEC has released various observations to help companies with XBRL, including areas that the registrant should focus on in improving their filings. They have also released a number of XBRL FAQs, compliance and disclosure interpretations, as well as XBRL staff guidance in recent years. They even created a specific office through the Division of Economic and Risk Analysis dedicated to XBRL interactive data. We believe they should continue to release this type of guidance to assist the registrants in knowing what areas they should focus on improving. For investors, improved quality of XBRL filings will enable them to really understand and leverage the information more in the future.

Ilya Vadeiko > As I understand it, the SEC was not really using XBRL data internally in the first several years of implementation. We can tell this by the number of data errors and consistency issues that were allowed in XBRL filings. In our standard process of aggregating XBRL reports at FinDynamics, we have established a sophisticated system of monitors, data validations and automated normalizations of XBRL data. This system used to capture a lot more issues in the reports in the first few years of implementation than it does now.

The SEC’s introduction of iXBRL indicates that they understand the positive impact this could have on the quality of reported data, which could not be improved solely by the development of EDGAR Filer Manual rules and checks of technical XBRL syntax and structure. I work closely with the Financial Accounting Standards Board as a member of the Taxonomy Advisory Group and XBRL Dimension Working Group, and I can attest to how much progress has been made in improving XBRL usability over the last two years.

Another step the SEC should take is to allow the XBRL International Financial Reporting Standards taxonomy, which is used by foreign filers, and require the use of XBRL Level 1-2 tagging in the management discussion and analysis (MD&A) sections of reports, which should be of great value and interest with the use of iXBRL.

Pranav Ghai > Full disclosure – the SEC is a customer of ours. We work closely with them. But I will also say that while the adoption of XBRL has been slower than any of us would have liked, we are recently seeing a significant increase in usage by some very sophisticated firms. So I am really encouraged by what I’m seeing. I have quarterly meetings with the Commission, and the questions I’m getting are very sophisticated. They’re using the information and they’re reaching out to us more than every quarter.

REPORT: 50% of institutional investors “buy” on an IPO’s first day

2016 has been a lackluster year for traditional IPOs. Mini-IPOs via RegA+ is another story (READ HERE).

About the study

Initially launched in 2012, the Shareholder Confidence 365 Study is an ongoing survey targeted at two key constituents with whom public companies communicate: institutional investors and individual investors. It was the first study of its kind — directly asking investors how they consume investor relations content. In 2014, we published an updated study.

For this 2016 iteration, we have segmented and compared the results between institutional investors and individual investors. To date. we have accumulated over 6,870 responses from a pool of 16,000 buy-side analysts & portfolio managers and from over 15,000 long-term holding retail investors. There are 29 questions.

Questions include:

  • How often do you visit IR websites?
  • Why do you visit IR websites?
  • Do you use Twitter for stock research?
  • Would a CEO video instill trust?
  • Do you use earnings estimates?

The inbound response ratio is 1:3, Wall Street to Main Street. All of the data is unedited, except for any typos within the comments and the exclusion of inappropriate comments.
