Active investor relations
The objective of investor relations work is to ensure, through continuous dialog, that the capital markets value the Company appropriately. The Executive Board and the KION Group’s investor relations team continued to communicate directly with investors and analysts last year, despite the restrictions resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. The KION Group participated in eleven – mostly virtual – investor conferences and provided information about the KION Group’s performance during one-on-one meetings and ten roadshow days.
Around 110 shareholders and shareholder representatives participated in the Annual General Meeting of KION GROUP AG on July 16, 2020. A total of 85.0 percent of the share capital was represented. In line with the German COVID-19 Measures Act, the meeting was held as a purely virtual event for the first time. Questions could be submitted online by July 13, 2020 and were answered individually during the meeting. There were no countermotions, nominations, or requests for additions to the agenda. The complete webcast of the Annual General Meeting can be accessed from the KION Group’s website.
To coincide with the publication of the 2019 annual report on March 3, 2020, the Executive Board of KION GROUP AG held a financial statements press conference and conference call to explain the results. At a Capital Markets Day for financial analysts, institutional investors, and bank representatives, the Executive Board presented on subjects such as the value drivers in the operating segments. In addition, the Executive Board held conference calls to report on each set of quarterly results. Transcripts from the annual and quarterly conference calls, along with the associated presentations, form part of the extensive information for investors that is available on the Company’s website.
