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 Group Executive.

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
  • remuneration.

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.
