Deutsche Post World Net has been awarded the price for the best quarterly report by DSW, Germany´s leading association for private investors. Chief Financial Officer Edgar Ernst will receive the award at a ceremony during the 4th International DSW Corporate Governance Conference in Wiesbaden, Germany tonight. The third-quarter interim report prevailed in DSW´s analysis of the DAX 30 third-quarter reports judged by criteria including the quality of the outlook section, an extensive risk report and a listing of significant events as well as due-time publishing. Deutsche Post´s interim report offers investors a particularly good outlook section, which offers detailed information on all business segments, according to DSW.
"We´re always striving to further improve communication with our shareholders and our aim is to set a benchmark in terms of transparency," said Ernst. "The award is encouraging evidence we´re on the right track and I´m very proud to be tonight´s recipient. Good and responsible corporate governance has become the rule among Germany´s top corporations and has played a key role in making them more attractive to international investors," he said.
Deutsche Post publishes three interim reports and one annual report a year in German and English and offers its investors a wide range of additional information such as investors´ newsletters and dedicated Capital Market Days. The group serves small shareholders on the same basis as institutional investors and supports a separate unit specializing on the information needs of its about 800,000 retail investors. Headed by Martin Ziegenbalg, Deutsche Post´s IR department covers more than 30 analysts and 250 investors with over 40 roadshows a year.
