The Nasdaq OMX Group (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today announced the launch of its Dynamic Annual Report, an enhanced Nasdaq OMX Corporate Solutions product providing companies with paperless shareholder communications technology.
The Report features on-demand accessibility, social media sharing and embedded video capabilities.
Dynamic Annual Reports meet the needs of the SEC's 2007 e-proxy notice and access guidelines, while increasing visibility, significantly reducing postage costs and supporting green sustainability initiatives.
"We're seeing more and more companies using video, social media, and dynamic online platforms to interact with their shareholders and improve the effectiveness of their communications strategies," said Demetrios N. Skalkotos, Senior Vice President of Global Corporate Services, NASDAQ OMX.
New features of Dynamic Annual Reports include embedded video to help companies tell their story and better connect with investors through dynamic content. Adobe Flash animation, a simulation akin to flipping pages, combined with a custom-branded interface increases audience interaction, while social media sharing via Twitter and Facebook allows visitors to organically increase distribution. Dynamic Annual Reports can also incorporate a scrolling RSS Feed to display the company's most recent news. The annual reports technology can be adapted to a range of marketing and communications materials, including retail catalogs, brochures and other collateral material. Dynamic Annual Reports is one of many investor relations and communications products from NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions, which services across communications, Intelligence, Visibility, and Governance Platforms.
