As part of the collaboration, Hayden IR and MS-IR will form a joint venture, Hayden MS-IR, to focus on European and Israeli-based companies listed on exchanges or traded in the United States.

Hayden/MS-IR will function as a valuable business partner with a comprehensive understanding of its clients' businesses and will provide expert guidance and support based on joint expertise, experience and broad network of relationships.
Miri Segal, owner and founder of MS-IR said: "Working for almost 15 years in the Israeli and American capital markets with global companies ranging from the size of start ups to publicly traded companies with hundred of millions in revenues and over a billion dollar in market cap, I feel that joining forces with an experienced firm as Hayden IR will benefit our clients."
She added: "Over the years, I've worked with Israeli, American, European, Chinese and Australian companies, initiated strategic relationships that resulted in M&A opportunities, new client introductions, new analyst coverage and increased shareholder value. I've prepared companies to the IPO and have provided consultation and guidance during road shows, M&A and perception analysis. I'm confident that Hayden & MS-IR combined expertise will assist our clients in achieving their strategic goals and maximize valuations."
