Close dialogue with the capital market

Our corporate strategy aims to create sustainable value of the Company. We support this strategy through regular and open communication with all capital market participants.

In order to ensure current access to information we participate in conferences with investors, we organize numerous individual meetings and roadshows both in Europe and in the United States. Moreover, every quarter, after the publication of financial results, we organize periodical meetings with investors and sell-side analysts as well as teleconferences with the members of the Company’s management. Both events have an open character.

In communication with the capital market we are guided by the main principle of transparency and equal access to information. Following this principle, we introduced the rule of limited communication before the publication of our financial results. Under this rule the representatives of the Company do not discuss or meet with analysts and investors two weeks prior to the publication of the quarterly results. This rule is meant to increase transparency and ensure the equal access to information on the Company before the publication of our financial results.

Moreover, in our communications we use such tools as website dedicated to investors, electronic newsletters, RSS, periodic newsletters including both information on current events in the Company and latest market developments (press review), as well as reminders of the most important events in the Company.

Dividend policy

The Company intends to provide its shareholders with a share in the generated profit through the payment of dividends. When recommending the Company’s profit distribution scenario for a given financial year to which the new dividend policy will apply, the Management Board of the Company shall submit a proposal to the General Meeting for the distribution of dividends representing from 33% to 66% of the standalone net profit of the Company, provided that the total indebtedness ratio of the Company’s capital group, i.e. net debt to EBITDA as at the end of the financial year to which the profit distribution refers is less than 2.5x.

When preparing the recommendation for the distribution of the Company’s profit and the dividend payment, the Management Board will also take into consideration: the amount of standalone net profit achieved by the Company, the financial condition of the Company’s capital group, existing obligations (including any restrictions arising from financing agreements and indebtedness of the Company and other members of its group), the ability to use and manage capital reserves, the Management and Supervisory Boards’ assessment of the prospects of the Company and its capital group in a particular market situation, as well as the need to make expenditures in pursuit of the overriding goal of the Company, that is its continued growth, in particular through acquisitions and engaging in new projects. According to the resolution of the Management Board, the new dividend policy came into effect as of and first apply to the standalone net profit for the financial year ending December 31, 2014.

Acting in accordance with resolution no. 23 of the Ordinary General Meeting, held on April 2, 2015, regarding profit distribution, the Company’s total standalone net profit for the financial year ended December 31, 2014 in the amount of PLN 177.2 million was allocated to the reserve capital.
