The key goal of communications with the financial public is to provide adequately structured, transparent, reliable, and up-to-date information on the business development of the Group and its financial standing. In doing so we treat all existing and potential shareholders equally, providing them with the best possible foundation for making investment decisions.
In 2011, Gorenje received the PORTAL open public limited company award. We have considered this to be the result of several years of efforts and pioneering work in the areas of corporate communication and governance in Slovenia.
Controlled and price-sensitive information is posted on the website of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange, via the SEOnet system, and on our Company website. Certain other information prescribed by the Articles of Association (e.g. convening of meetings) is also published in the Delo newspaper. In 2011 the Company published a total of 53 public announcements, all of which were simultaneously published in the Slovenian and English languages.
All public announcements in English were sent to international press agencies, media, investors and analysts via an e-mail distribution system that currently includes more than 140 international and 165 domestic recipients. Besides public announcements, E-news is also sent on request to investors. To subscribe to E-news please click here.
Direct Contacts with the Financial Public
After publishing our quarterly results, we organised a meeting with investors, financial analysts and representatives of financial investors (banks). The presentation is posted on our website. On 20 December 2011 we organised a meeting with investors for the announcement of the Company's new strategic plan for the 2012–2015 period.
We attended two virtual presentations (webcasts) for investors organised by the Ljubljana Stock Exchange.
We communicated with institutional investors at eight conferences, during which we participated in 53 individual and group meetings. We also organised five conference calls (primarily after the publication of periodical results).

We work closely with sell-side analysts and provide them with a maximum amount of information to ensure quality monitoring of the Company's operation. We are always at their disposal for commentaries and additional explanations of public announcements, thus contributing to the objectivity of information in their analyses. One of our goals in the area of investor relations is to increase the number of analysts who regularly publish trading recommendations on Gorenje's shares. We regularly meet new analysts at road shoe conferences who are interested in our operations. In our meetings with them, we endeavour to provide as detailed information as possible in order to facilitate the monitoring of our shares.
We have introduced a silent period that begins fifteen days prior to the public announcement of quarterly reports, during which time Gorenje does not hold organised meetings with representatives of the media, investors or analysts.
Communications with Minor Investors
Communications with minor investors were carried out by phone, e-mail, classic mail, and even in person, particularly in the period of organised collection of authorisations for general meetings of shareholders.
