The year 2012 was a prominent year in the history of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. July 10th 2012 marked the 15th anniversary of the Company’s debut on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. Since then, KGHM has become one of the leaders of the WSE fl oor and has been awarded many times by the capital markets with the most prestigious distinctions for the management quality and transparency and the communication with the market and the investors. On listing day in 1997, the price of KGHM shares went up to PLN 23.5 and was 24% higher than the price paid by the individual investors and 12% higher than the price paid by institutional investors. During the 15 years of the Company’s presence on the stock exchange, the value of the Company’s shares has gone up by 740%.

In accordance with the Regulation of the Minister of Finance of 15 March 2009 on the provision of current and periodical information by issuers of securities, every year KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. presents information on conformance with the corporate governance principles in a dedicated section of the Management Board report published in the annual report. In this way, the Company demonstrates to investors its commitment to corporate governance rules. KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. attempts to follow all recommendations formulated as part of the best WSE practices at all stages of operations. In 2012 the Company decided not to implement only one recommendation postulating online broadcasting of General Meetings. Instead, the meetings were recorded and videos were made immediately available on the Company’s website in both Polish and English language versions, accessible under the section Investors/ Webcasts. The Company is currently in the course of preparations to launch online broadcasts of its General Meetings.
