Dialogue with shareholders

The dialogue  with stakeholders, among whom shareholders are of particular significance, is for us a key aspect of our Company’s operations.

We do our best to maintain regular communication and a transparent dialogue with current and future investors in order to provide objective information about the Company’s current operations and strategic goals. We maintain dialogue with shareholders and market participants by means of regulatory and periodic reports published via the official reporting system (ESPI), our website, one-to-one meetings and participation of our representatives in investor conferences, road shows and meetings with analysts and fund managers.

KGHM follows an active investor relations information policy and maintains high standards in its contacts with investors, both institutional and individual.

The publication of KGHM’s quarterly financial results is followed by a conference accessible to all stakeholders, transmitted online in Polish and English. Video recordings of the conference are available on the Company’s website for review at a later date. Apart from these webcasts the company also conducts meetings in the form of conference calls and videoconferences. A summation of our Investor Relations activities may be found in table 5.12.
