Pro-active capital market communication

Henkel is covered by numerous financial analysts, primarily in the UK and Germany. Over 30 equity and debt analysts regularly publish reports and commentaries on the current performance of the company.

Henkel places great importance on dialogue with investors and analysts. Institutional investors and financial analysts had an opportunity to talk directly with our top management at 14 capital market conferences and roadshows held in Europe and North America.

One highlight of the year was our Investor and Analyst Conference in London on November 16, 2012, where Kasper Rorsted and Carsten Knobel presented our third-quarter business results, and our strategy and financial targets for 2016 to some 60 international investors and analysts. A further highlight was our Investor and Analyst Day for the Laundry & Home Care business on September 4, 2012, where the management team presented our strategy and new trends and developments in the laundry and home care market. We also conducted numerous telephone conferences and one-on-one meetings.
