Investor Relations policy
Accell Group aims to provide its shareholders, potential shareholders and other stakeholders with all relevant financial and similar information as effectively and as timely as possible, in order to provide more insight into the company and the sector. To this end, financial results are published in the form of press releases. Accell Group organises meetings with analysts and the (financial) media to present and explain its full-year results and half-year results. The annual results for 2012 and the 2012 first-half results were both presented to (major) shareholders, press and analysts.
Ten years after the introduction of the company on Euronext Amsterdam, Accell Group is included as from September 2008 in the Amsterdam Small Cap Index (AScX), due to increased turnover in its shares. Accell Group sees inclusion in the AScX-index as an important recognition and incentive to make the company attractive for investors. Achieving good results and pursuing an active investor relations policy are of importance in that respect.
