Rivel's foundation of numerical scores and qualitative transcripts were really made meaningful by the commentary, context and analysis that they provided. This gave us a valuable perspective on investor sentiment. The insight delivered was clear and actionable.

Rivel Research Group has conducted investor perception studies for our company. We have found this research, as well as the insight that Rivel adds, to be valuable as we determine how to best match our company’s strategy with the investor’s expectations. Rivel’s work is comprehensive and their ability to compare results with the S&P 500 data is particularly meaningful. We would recommend Rivel Research Group to any company who is looking for investor perception research.

We engaged Rivel at a time in which we were considering changes to our capital allocation process. The information they gathered regarding the return of cash to our shareholders was extremely valuable and helped shape our Board of Directors' thinking on the topic. Our efforts culminated with Rivel presenting their findings as part of the Board's annual planning meeting.

Just as effective market research is critical to maximizing sales, effective investor perception research is crucial to maximizing and maintaining shareholder value. Perception research conducted by Rivel has been an invaluable part of our investor relations planning.

Quantification gives me additional confidence when discussing research results with our management because it brings to light where we stand compared to our industry and financial peers. While it is useful to understand investor perception, it's particularly meaningful to understand this context in order to make a determination if changes are necessary in our communications.

There's no better base to build on than sound, empirical research. Rivel's work really helped us to zero in on the key issues and opportunities facing us in the investment community. Their ability to situate results in the broader context of normative data for the S&P 500 was especially useful.

We have used Rivel for a number of studies over the years. One of the benefits of their method is that we are able to track the perception of our Company over time as it relates to a number of metrics. It shows us where we are doing very well in the mind of investors and analysts, and where we can focus our efforts, as it has evolved over time - not just trying to adjust to the current quarter.

Amy Giuffre, Director of Investor Relations
Harley-Davidson, Inc.

The regular use of Rivel Research perception studies has enabled us to obtain a better understanding of how our shareholders, and prospective shareholders, view our company and our strategy. Rivel Research is valued part of our Investor Relations program
