Advice

Lansons was appointed by Stobart Group in March 2013 to manage external communications around a Boardroom crisis that resulted in the Chairman stepping down after 71 days in the job. The resulting fall-out led the share price to fall to 75p. However a disciplined programme around communicating the 2012 annual results and H1 2013 interims (both largely flat), introducing new Chairman Iain Ferguson and a more open approach to media and the City has led to a recovery in share price to over 140p.
