It is the policy of the company to encourage active participation and have dialogues with shareholders including institutional investors. Through Investor Relations, a unit under Corporate Strategy and Development, information requirements of the investing public and minority shareholders are fully disclosed to the local bourse on time, as well as via quarterly briefings, annual stockholders’ meetings, one-on-one meetings, conference calls, roadshows and investor conferences, website and e-mails or telephone calls with individual and institutional investors.
The company holds regular briefings and meetings with investment and financial analysts where they are given access to senior management. In 2014, four briefings were held to discuss the 2013 yearend results and 2014 first quarter, first half, and third quarter results.
Ayala regularly updates its website to ensure that disclosures to the regulators and presentations at analysts’ briefings are immediately made available on the web to provide easy access for the investing community.
The Investor Relations Unit also regularly attends investor conferences and holds non-deal roadshows to update its foreign institutional investors and overseas shareholders. Briefings cover corporate objectives including long-term goals and financial targets.
