The goal of our IR activities is to meet capital market expectations for transparency and provide shareholders with a true and fair view of our Company. We view investor relations not only as an obligation to provide our owners with reliable information on their company, but also as an opportunity to attract new domestic and international investors. For this reason, we work to continually increase transparency in order to support an accurate market valuation of our stock. In October 2002 Wienerberger became one of the first Austrian companies to announce compliance with the Corporate Governance Code, which sets strict guidelines for management, control and transparency. Wienerberger meets all provisions of the Austrian Corporate Governance Code, even those that have only recommendation character.
Transparency as priority
The Issuer Compliance Regulations announced by the Financial Market Authority requires the simultaneous disclosure of company information with identical content. Wienerberger complies with this regulation in a consistent manner. Share price relevant announcements on our Company are provided to analysts, investors, and the media concurrently. At the same time this information is also placed on our Website, to give our private shareholders equal access to current information.
The routine duties of our investor relations department include road shows in Europe and the USA, conference calls, meetings with investors and analysts, and regular quarterly reporting.
