Alliance’s CSR program helps small and medium companies to unlock their true value

Company Sponsored Research (CSR)

Why Company Sponsored Research?

Over the past decade, many small and medium capitalization companies have often struggled with issues such as illiquidity in their shares and lack of favorable access to capital. Many of these company has extremely bright prospects but still struggle to reach their fair valuation just because investors are “unaware.” Thus, they often end up raising capital by selling a huge chunk of their equity or raising debt at very unfavorable terms.

There always remains a void between the fair value of the company and the actual market value of the company, which can only be plugged by making investors aware of the company. At Alliance Equity Research, we enable companies to plug this void through our company-sponsored research (CSR) program. We help them get sufficient analyst coverage by producing and distributing in-depth, institutional-level equity research reports.

Our equity research reports are distributed to a wide number of institutional and retail investors through various well-known platforms, which helps improve the company’s liquidity, achieve fair valuation, and get easy access to capital.

How can CSR help you?

Our Company Sponsored Research (CSR) program benefits small and medium companies in several ways:


Increased Liquidity

Often, the shares of small-capitalization companies are highly illiquid, which makes them susceptible to a host of issues and risks. Company Sponsored Research allows small-capitalization companies to reach new investors, which increases liquidity in the company’s shares.

Increased Trading Volume

High liquidity helps in an increased trading volume. Also, having consensus estimates of key line items helps broaden the investor pool, as most trading algorithms frequently use consensus estimates when allocating their capital.   

Achieve Fair Valuation

Our equity research reports are distributed to a wide number of institutional and retail investors, which helps them make informed decisions about investing in these companies. Greater investor participation leads to a multi-fold increase in the valuation, which helps the company achieve its fair value.

Level the Playing Field

With the introduction of MiFID II, most of the sell-side companies stopped covering small and medium companies, which adversely affected their trading volume and liquidity. Large companies remain to get adequate coverage. At Alliance Equity Research, we level the playing field by providing small and medium companies the same high-quality research coverage that a large company enjoys

Increased Confidence

A company having high liquidity and valuation increases the market’s confidence in it. Even the suppliers and customers are aware of it. They find it more comforting to do business with the company than a company with no coverage or visibility.

Easy Access to Capital

Increased liquidity, high valuation, and corporate visibility helps the company to get easy access to capital at favorable terms.

Our services

We provide a gamut of services in the CSR space

CSR Value Proposition For Investors

Our CSR program offers tremendous value-add to both retail and institutional investors. We level the playing ground for retail investors who usually do not have access to quality research that an institution has.

Institutional investors constantly look for new investment opportunities in the small to medium cap space. The number of equities in the small to the mid-cap universe is so high that even institutional investors find it very difficult to research and filter new investment ideas. Alliance Equity Research helps institutional investors with highly insightful research reports that help them make informed investment decisions.

Initiation of Coverage

A detailed initiating coverage report that touches upon a myriad of data points from micro to macro levels. Each initiating coverage report is accompanied by a detailed financial model which contains projections of the Income Statement, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow Statement, Ratio Analysis, DCF, GPCM, and GTM Valuation.

Quarterly Updates and Flash Notes

We provide timely quarterly updates on all the companies that we cover. Often, other research providers lack providing report updates, which leaves a very negative impression on the investment community. Report updates help build investor confidence and let them stay at the top of all the events taking place in the company.

Model Update

We closely track all the companies that we cover. In case of any major event taking place in the company, we quickly update the model to price in the effect of the event. Again, timely model updates help build investor confidence and let them stay at the top of all the events taking place in the company.

Investment Reports

Investment reports contain a detailed investment thesis and summary of the company. It is like an initiation report, except that it is relatively brief, and does not contain projections and forward estimates. It is suitable for public companies that want to increase their corporate visibility, or private companies that are looking to raise funds in the near future through a means of private (Venture Capital, LBO, etc) or public (IPO, SPACS, etc) issues.


We have a wide distribution channel through which the reports are submitted to a large number of institutional and retail investors. Our research is distributed through renowned financials platforms including Yahoo! Finance, S&P Capital IQ, Bloomberg, Zacks, FactSet, and Thomson One. Besides this, we also distribute our reports through various social media platforms like Twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn, and Email newsletters. All in all, our distribution channels have a combined reach of more than three million investors.
