Active investor relations work
The objective of investor relations is to ensure, through continuous dialogue, that the capital markets value the Company appropriately. The Executive Board and the KION Group’s investor relations team continued their active dialogue with investors and analysts last year. The KION Group participated in investor conferences in Germany and abroad and held numerous roadshows and one-on-one meetings. At these events, also the acquisition of Dematic and its financing were explained in detail.
On 30 November 2016, around 60 investors and analysts took part in the KION Group’s Capital Markets Day in Frankfurt am Main. The Executive Boards of KION and Dematic presented detailed information about the new shared offering and provided a comprehensive picture of the automation market.
Around 100 shareholders participated in the Annual General Meeting of KION GROUP AG on 12 May 2016. Those in attendance, representing 85.8 per cent of the voting share capital, approved all the draft resolutions put forward by the Company’s management with a substantial majority. The speeches of the Chief Executive Officer and the chairman of the Supervisory Board were broadcast live at kiongroup.com/agm. A webcast of the Chief Executive Officer’s speech is also available on the Company’s website.
When the 2015 annual report was published on 17 March 2016, the Executive Board of KION GROUP AG held a conference call at which it presented the steps already taken to implement the Strategy 2020 plus the planned future milestones. In addition, the Executive Board held update calls to report on each set of quarterly results. The transcripts from the conference calls on the 2015 financial year and the quarterly update calls along with the presentations form part of the extensive information for investors which is available on the Company’s website.
