"The Powerscourt team has the experience and maturity to approach our corporate and financial PR requirements with a firm view on our longer term objectives.  It is refreshing to work with a communications consultancy that really understands the difference between short term publicity and long term reputation.  I also really appreciate that the team is able to interact so closely with our other corporate advisors." Tim Brill, Head of Corporate Communications & IR, Micro Focus International plc

Powerscourt has been retained by Micro Focus International plc, the international software product group, since May 2012.  Micro Focus, a FTSE 250 company, provides innovative software that helps companies to improve the business value of their enterprise applications with reduced cost and risk.  We provide financial communications advice to management, principally around financial calendar events and events such as acquisitions and returns of value to shareholders.  Our external engagement is both with the financial media and the IT sector analysts, and we maintain an up-to-date table of their forecasts and of consensus.  A member of our team was involved with the company when it was Micro Focus Group plc, before its take-private in 2001 and then advised the company on its IPO communications on its return to the quoted market as Micro Focus International plc in 2005.
