- BASF’s Investor Relations receives multiple awards
Our corporate strategy aims to create long-term value. We support this strategy through regular and open communication with all capital market participants. To keep institutional investors and rating agencies informed, we host numerous one-on-one meetings and roadshows worldwide. We also hold informational events to provide private investors with insight into BASF.
At the end of September, we discussed the implementation of our “We create chemistry” strategy with analysts and investors at an Investor Day held in Ludwigshafen. The members of our Board of Executive Directors as well as our divisional presidents presented all five segments and their operating divisions to around a hundred guests. We used numerous examples to illustrate how BASF’s innovations are used in key customer industries.
In 2015, we once again put on roadshows geared speciﬁcally toward investors who base their investment decisions on sustainability criteria. There, we especially outlined our measures for climate protection and energy efﬁciency. In addition, we conducted several special creditor relations roadshows, where creditors and credit analysts could learn more about our business and our financing strategy.
Investors can ﬁnd comprehensive information about BASF and BASF shares on our website and on social media platforms.
Analysts and investors have confirmed the quality of our communication work: We took several leading rankings in Institutional Investor Magazine’s annual survey in 2015. These included first prize in the Best Analyst Days in Europe (Chemicals) category for the Chemicals Investor Day held in London in 2014. Moreover, our investor relations activities were honored by the U.K.’s Investor Relations Society with first place in the “International” category.
