NBS Communications is the oldest and one of the most experienced public relations agencies in Poland. Since 1990 we have been supporting our clients to raise their profile, manage their corporate image and communicate effectively with target audiences. We specialise in corporate and financial PR, investor relations and elaborate campaigns supporting capital market transactions such as public offering (IPO and SPO) and mergers and acquisitions. The total value of transactions NBS was involved in between 2008-2013 alone was about PLN 60 billion.
We have been responsible for over 120 public offering campaigns, supporting companies across the full market-cap spectrum and from a wide range of industries, including banking, retail, property, natural resources, telecommunications and energy. We are the only PR agency to be awarded a special prize by the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) in recognition of our role in having promoted the most IPOs in Warsaw. Our campaigns have supported the public offerings and debuts of some of the largest Polish companies, many of them state-owned, such as PKN Orlen, Telekomunikacja Polska, Bank Pekao, PGE, PKO Bank Polski, Bank Millennium, PZU, Tauron Polska Energia, the WSE, PKP Cargo and Alior Bank.
We have also worked for numerous privately-held companies on their listings on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, including Atrem, Fota, Trakcja Polska, Magellan, AmRest and Action.
Our client roster in the past included Bank Austria, the first foreign company listed on the WSE, and Astarta Holding – the first Ukrainian issuer.
In addition, NBS managed communications in tens of merger and acquisition transactions.
Our work does not end with the IPO, however, as many of our newly-listed clients continue to rely on our investor relations and corporate PR expertise. We also advise them on media relations, crisis management and internal communications.
Since 2003, NBS Communications has been regularly conducting the WarsawScan study, which is designed to evaluate the quality of investor relations of Polish listed companies. This research provides us with invaluable insight into investors′ attitudes and preferences.
NBS is an independent agency which is owned by its consultants. The NBS team consists of highly experienced IR advisers who combine in-depth knowledge of the Polish market with international best practice. We work in Polish and English.
NBS has been a member of the Association of Public Relations Consultancies, a part of International Communication Consultancy Organisation (ICCO), for 10 years and is the exclusive Polish member of AMO, the leading global network of strategic and financial communications consultancies.
