Efficiently Managed Business Partner

Investor relations is one of the key aspects of the Company’s operations. The overall aim is to create shareholder value, present an accurate picture of the Company and build the trust of investors. The Company engages in regular actions targeted at representatives of international investment funds, investment banks, market analysts and individual investors from the Metals and Mining sector and from emerging markets. In 2012, KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. held numerous presentations for investors during road shows and investor conferences. KGHM representatives took part in fourteen conferences organised by international investment banks and brokerage firms in such countries as Austria, Denmark, Canada, the United States and the UK. The Management Board and senior managers attended 150 individual and 25 collective meetings, providing information to representatives of 175 institutional investors.

 

Each publication of the Company’s quarterly reports is accompanied by meetings of KGHM Management Board with analysts, fund managers and business journalists. The meetings are broadcasted live on theInternet and webcasts are available at www.kghm.pl, under Investors tab. The Management Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. also met with analysts and fund managers during the Investor Days. Over the two days, the Company’s visitors had a chance to learn more about the conducted technological processes, the Company’s strategy for the coming years, the growth of the resource base, cost structure, capital expenditures and risk management.

 

In 2012, one of the Investor Relations objectives was to upgrade the Company’s market communication to the standards maintained by other companies from the Metals and Mining sector listed on different stock exchanges across the world. To this end, in 2012 KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. published new reports on mining assets and production prepared in line with the Canadian standard of disclosure of information about resources. The reports respond to a growing demand from the market for information about the Company’s production capacity, the resources evaluated and extracted by KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. and the prospective resource potential of the copper ore deposits located in the Legnica-Głogów Copper District.

 

A significant channel of communication with the investors is the website maintained by the Company (www.kghm.pl). The Investors tab contains information about the current situation of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A., including financial reports, minutes of General Meetings, corporate governance documents, market forecasts of the Company’s performance, the investor calendar, presentations and webcasts. In addition to webcasts of Management Board meetings and performance announcement conferences in 2012, approximately 35 teleconferences and videoconferences were held. The newsletter with current information about the company had 550 subscribers in 2012. For the first time, the annual report was prepared also in a multimedia version.

 

Thanks to our focus on the quality of market communication, in 2012 KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. became a partner to the countrywide campaign launched by the Ministry of State Treasury called ”Citizen Shareholding – Informed Investments”. The aim of the program is to encourage citizens to make informed investments in securities, enhance public trust in the capital market and stimulate the activity of individual investors on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. The Ministry takes advantage of the support of listed companies, capital market institutions and brokerage firms. One of the key initiatives under the program has been a series of workshops on stock market investments. The beginners on the capital market and investors with some experience may take part in free of charge meetings with experts, training programs and hands-on classes during which they will learn about opportunities offered by investments in securities. Between September 2012 and January 2013, thirty six meetings were held in different cities of Poland.

 

The significance of investor relations in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. will be growing in view of the Company’s globalisation. Following the delisting of Quadra FNX from the Toronto stock exchange, KGHM Polska Miedź will also manage the information policy of KGHM INTERNATIONAL LTD. Such activities enhance the Company’s image on the international arena.
