Regular dialogue with investors
Outotec’s approach to investor relations and communicating with the financial markets is based on Finnish law, EU directives, and our own policies on corporate governance and disclosure, as well as stock exchange rules and regulations.
At the end of 2017, Outotec had 25,478 (29,686) shareholders. Shares held in 11 nominee registers accounted for 35% of all Outotec shares, while private Finnish investors held 14%. Fourteen sell-side analysts and one credit analyst conducted research focusing on Outotec.
The annual Capital Markets Day event was held on September 21 at Outotec House in Espoo, Finland.
In addition to our quarterly investor briefings and annual financial statements briefings, the CEO’s mid-quarter Q&A sessions continued to be an important channel for maintaining dialogue. These audio casts aim to further clarify information that has already been made public. In addition, we met frequently investors and analysts in one-on-one discussions, at industry seminars and road shows.
In order to serve the capital market efficiently, to ensure equal access to company-related information, and to comply with disclosure requirements, all our audio casts are recorded and available for on-demand viewing. In 2017, we also started streaming our quarterly investor briefings live in Facebook.
