Investor Relations Policy

The FLSmidth Group engages in a close dialogue with the stock market and intends to ensure that all investors have equal and timely access to relevant information and that the developments in its share price reflect the underlying financial performance of the Group.

The objective of FLSmidth & Co.'s Investor Relations function is to contribute to and facilitate that;

  • FLSmidth complies with EU and Danish laws and regulations and with NASDAQ Copenhagen A/S “Rules for issuers of shares”.
  • investors have equal and adequate access to timely, relevant and price sensitive information
  • the share price reflects the Group’s underlying financial performance and fair market value
  • the liquidity and daily trading volume in the FLSmidth share is sufficiently attractive for both short and long term investors
  • the shareholder base is diversified in terms of both geography, investment style and time horizon

 

The means are:

  • An open and active dialogue with the stockmarket via FLSmidth & Co.’s website and electronic communication service, as well as via investor presentations, one-on-one meetings, webcasts, conference calls, roadshows, AGMs and capital market days.
  • Providing investors and analysts with the services and information required within the limits of rules and regulations applying to listed companies on NASDAQ Copenhagen.

The overall principles of how we conduct investor relations are:

  • The Group maintains a three week silent period before the planned release of financial statements during which, it neither comments on financial goals or guidance, nor does it take part in meetings and presentations with analysts or investors 
  • We only comment on factual and publicly available information, and not on analyst estimates 
  • We aim at hosting a capital market day every second year to allow investors and analysts to enhance their insights and understanding of our business
