Relations with shareholders
Kingfisher and the Board acknowledge the importance of having
effective and regular lines of communication with our shareholders.
These engagements take various forms and include presentations,
roadshows, store visits and face to face meetings and involve the
Chairman, Senior Independent Director, Chief Executive Officer,
Chief Financial Officer and other members of the Board and
During the year we have engaged with shareholders on a range
of topics including:
- ONE Kingfisher strategy and the five year plan;
- financial and business performance;
- full and interim results, including trading updates;
- governance, including succession planning; and
Our shareholder engagement objectives extend beyond promoting
the investment case and matters relating to executive remuneration.
Engagements also aim to develop shareholders’ understanding of
our business and strategy. For example, during the year shareholders
were able to see for themselves the implementation of the Enterprise
Resource Planning programme with a store visit to Dublin. Our
strategic vision and the five year plan were shared with shareholders
and analysts at the Capital Markets Day in January 2016, which was
well represented by shareholders.
