Investor relations

During the period covered by this report, the Investor Relations team has been continuously engaged in the task of involving our investors and exchanging views with them. Maintaining an open dialogue with investors is a crucial part of our financial communications work. To this end, in addition to the Annual General Meeting, we held regular investor conferences and road shows at which we regularly updated investors and financial analysts on the latest developments and the strategic direction taken by the Group. These discussions focused not just on issues of commercial relevance during the financial year but also on topics relating to sustainability, such as ensuring equal opportunities with regard to appointments to the Supervisory Board and the Board of Directors. We also held regular analysts' conferences to coincide with the release of our quarterly and annual reports.
