For years, KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. has been one of the world’s leading producers of copper and silver. The steady development of trust amongst analysts and investors has resulted in the Company being included in the prestigious RESPECT Index. In pursuit of even better investor relations and to demonstrate its commitment to maintaining an open dialogue, KGHM invited people from the business community for direct contact with the company through its recent Analyst Day.
During his introductory remarks at the start of this year’s Analyst Day, Marcin Chludziński, President of the Management Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A., emphasised the following: We are renewing the tradition of holding meetings with our investors. I’d like to point out that an open informational policy is the foundation of our operations. We want to be open and transparent and are prepared to do just that. I hope that your visits to our facilities and seeing close-hand the degree of care we take to do quality work has shown you that the name KGHM Polska Miedź represents an enormous variety of diverse and complex processes."
Our guests were given tours through the operations of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A and were familiarised with its mining and metallurgical activities. Starting from the very beginning of the production process, our guests were shown the extraction of salt and copper ore from our Polkowice-Sieroszowice mine, the processing of the ore by our Concentrators Division and finally transformation of the concentrate into refined copper cathodes at the Głogów Smelter and Refinery, as well as the production of high-quality copper wire rods at our Cedynia Wire Rod plant.
Following the site visits were workshops with the management staff of KGHM. Members of the Management Board and the Company’s directors talked about the business, current operations and the Company’s Strategy.
„We were delighted to have the opportunity to host our analyst colleagues, with whom we regularly work. We want to raise the quality of this cooperation. By bringing our guests to our mines and metallurgical facilities we hoped to impress on them the amount of effort involved in creating value, the value of the Company and the entire KGHM Group,” said Janusz Krystosiak, Director of the Investor Relations Department. “We are very happy by the fact that the market perceives and judges us as being so transparent. Open dialogue is critical.”
