Investor Relations Guidelines
The main goal of the IR Department is to promote and support the correct knowledge and valuation of the A2A stock by the financial community, through a communication which is active, transparent, well-timed, constant, correct and not discriminatory. In order to achieve this goal, the IR Department supports A2A top management in the constant monitoring of the expectations of the financial markets on the Group performance. The external stakeholders are mainly equity financial analysts, institutional investors and retail investors. The department holds regular meetings (one-to-one and group meetings) with the financial community in Italy and abroad. Furthermore, the IR department arranges at least conference calls with the management at the time of the release of the Group results. International roadshows with the top management are usually organized for the presentation of important strategic developments.
Prior to a public release of financial results, the top management is not available for meetings concerning the financial performance that will be disclosed. The length of this black-out period is to be considered around two weeks approximately.
Regular perception studies are carried out to monitor the effectiveness of the department activities as well as the market sentiment on A2A. Moreover, web contents of the IR area are constantly monitored, developed and updated in order to fully satisfy the investor queries. Retail investors are advised to contact the IR department through e-mail, filling in the form available on A2A website or via letter. The IR Department commits itself to answer to every question as soon as possible. The answers can only deal with issues related to the IR activity and, concerning A2A share, the IR department can only refer to public information available on the company website. In order to ensure a better flow of information about the most relevant topics for retail investors, a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section has been created on A2A website. The IR department is not in charge neither of comments about the A2A performance in the Stock Exchange, nor of financial advice about the investment in A2A.
