Capital market communication
In order to ensure utmost transparency and thereby strengthen the confidence of shareholders and investors as well as of the interested public, HUGO BOSS reports regularly and in a timely manner on the business development of the Company and on key strategic and operative initiatives. As part of investor relations activities, regular exchange with institutional investors, financial analysts and private shareholders must be ensured. Apart from an annual press briefing and an analysts conference on the annual results, conference calls are held with financial analysts when the first quarter, first half year and the nine months reports are published. At the annual Investor Day, the Group's strategy and relevant developments are discussed in detail. Especially for private investors, the Annual Shareholders' Meeting is an important and effective forum for obtaining comprehensive information on the development of the Company.
All key information and publications can be accessed on the Company's website at www.group.hugoboss.com. Also posted on the website is the financial calendar, which provides an overview of the most important dates. This is always kept up to date and is also included in the annual and quarterly reports. Information on current developments and all press releases and ad hoc reports are also published on the website. As required by law, ad hoc reports within the meaning of Sec. 15 WpHG ["Wertpapierhandelsgesetz": German Securities Trading Act] are published immediately by HUGO BOSS and can be accessed at the website's "Investor relations" section under "News and releases". In accordance with the principle of fair disclosure, this ensures that all shareholders and key target groups are treated equally and that new information is generally available to all shareholders and the interested public at the same time. Interested parties can also subscribe to an electronic newsletter to receive up-to-date information on news within the Group.
