Transparency

Axel Springer is committed to always providing comprehensive and consistent information in a timely and simultaneous manner on the significant events and developments relevant to an evaluation of the company’s present and future business performance to all capital market participants. Reporting on the business situation and Group results is presented in its Annual Report, at its annual financial statements press conference, and in its semi-annual financial report and quarterly financial statements. Therefore, the company also regularly uses the transmission paths on the Internet. Axel Springer also takes part in numerous conferences at important international stock exchanges or carries out corresponding road shows; further information can be found in the Annual Report 2017. In addition, to the extent legally required, the company will publish information in the form of ad-hoc announcements. Furthermore, it informs the interested public by means of press releases, the company's websites or dedicated events such as a Capital Markets Day.

In order to ensure equal treatment of all capital market participants, Axel Springer also publishes information relevant to the capital markets simultaneously in German and English on the company’s website. Financial reporting dates are published in the financial calendar with sufficient advance notice. Immediately upon receiving the corresponding notices, the company publishes changes in the composition of the shareholder structure that are subject to the reporting obligation according to Section 40 of the WpHG (prev. Section 26 WpHG), and on the purchase and sale of shares by persons who exercise management duties at Axel Springer (directors’ dealings), in accordance with Section 19 of the Market Abuse Regulation.
