Roadshow

From the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Portal. 

This term is typically used within the context of a specific bond offering. When no bond is on offer, then market participants will typically use the term investor meetings.

 

In both cases, they may be individual or a series of meetings with investors. The purpose of a roadshow is to market a planned  bond issue.

 

During a roadshow issuers will  focus on outlining published financials, credit ratings and expected bond terms such as maturity and size. Notice of such meetings is generally publicly disseminated at the time participants are invited.

 

These meetings are not for communicating material non-public or inside information concerning the issuer.
