In addition to the meetings following the earnings updates, the company arranges or accepts individual or group meetings with investors and sell-side analysts on an ad-hoc basis. Depending on investors’ policies, sell-side analysts are allowed to attend meetings with (prospective) investors and Company management. The Company initiates contact if and when deemed appropriate and responds to inbound questions and requests from investors and sell-side analysts. The Company strictly follows applicable rules and regulations regarding Company disclosures. The Company facilitates interaction throughout the whole year, except during closed periods in which the Company in principle does not host any meetings.
