|Investor conferences in Poland and abroad
|Company representatives actively meet with investors and analysts in Poland and abroad during conferences organised by brokers. In 2020, the Company took part in more than a dozen investor conferences and more than 100 meetings. In 2020 the Company additionally took part in the Finance and Investing Forum organised by the Individual Investors Society in Warsaw.
|The Investor Relations Department organises meetings with the Management Board to discuss the financial results of the Company and the Group. In 2020, the publication of financial results was accompanied by a results conference for all stakeholders, with a live webcast in Polish and English and the possibility of asking questions by email. Video recordings of these conferences are available on the Company’s website, http://www.kghm.com, in the Investors section.
|Capital Market Days
|The Investor Relations Department regularly organises events for the capital market. This type of meeting is aimed at familiarising investors with the degree of advancement of the development strategy as well as with the current operating and financial situation of the KGHM Group and its individual assets. In 2020, because of the COVID-19 pandemic and concerns for the health and safety of its employees and investors, the Company decided to defer the organisation of an Analyst Day and an Individual Investor Day.
|WallStreet 24 online conference
|In 2020, KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. again took an active part in the WallStreet conference. The Company was a strategic partner of the 24th edition of the conference. The largest meeting of individual investors in Poland was carried out online, with participation of about 11,000 registered participants. Amongst the activities engaged in by KGHM was our participation in the online Your Investments Forum, where we took part in the EU Green Deal discussion. In terms of opportunities and threats facing KGHM, we participated in a debate on Poland’s economy in 2021 by leaders of Polish listed companies and gave an interview in the investor magazine Akcjonariusz. Individual investors also had a chance to meet with members of the KGHM Investor Relations team during a Shareholders Fair, in the form of an online chat.
|The Company’s representatives are available to individual investors during on-line chats. These are organised on a regular basis, after the Company publishes its financial results. In 2020, four investor chats were held.
|Upgrade of the IR section on the KGHM website
|The Investor Relations Department has decided to modernize the Investors section on the KGHM corporate website. This involved not only a substantial technical update of the section, but also represented a fundamental change in way we present content. We simplified the organisation of thematical areas and made it easier to search for key operational and financial information. A new element is the Investor Handbook, where one may find information on how to purchase KGHM’s shares, answers to frequently asked questions, basic information about the Company, transcripts of quarterly chats with investors following results announcements and the latest investor presentation, as well as links to our IR Newsletter and investor events. Another new element, of particular importance, is a section devoted to ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) issues.
|In response to the expectations of stakeholders of the Company as well as to developmental trends and the growing global commitment to reporting questions involving environmental, social and governance issues, in 2020 the Company, in line with its Strategy, initiated a variety of actions aimed at enhancing our transparency in these areas and simplifying the process of seeking information connected with the non-financial reporting of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. These actions included the Copper Mark initiative, activities related to maintaining our certification within the FTSE4Good Index Series and participation for the first time in the CDP climate survey. In 2020 KGHM provided responses to questionnaires or information requests involving ESG-related questions from, among others: CDP, FTSE Russell, MSCI, Acadian Asset Management, HSBC, Corporate Knights, WOOD & Co., Church of England and PKO BP Securities.
|Quarterly IR Newsletter
|The IR Newsletter summarises the most important quarterly events and is distributed to subscribers via email. The goal of the Newsletter is to assure its recipients with an accurate source of knowledge about KGHM and the global copper market and to facilitate analysis and assessment of the possibilities associated with investing in the Company’s shares. The commencement of publication of the IR Newsletter was met with appreciation by investors and other participants in the capital market. The project received commendation as an example of IR Best Practice during a webinar hosted by the Warsaw Stock Exchange, as well as by the Individual Investors Society.
In 2020, analytical reports on KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. were published by 8 sell-side analysts based in Poland and 9 based abroad.
