Communication and Investor Relations
Corporate Communications and Investor Relations are the two Service Centers responsible for all stakeholder information. The content of communication is primarily based on GF’s Strategy 2025 and vision. Communication with all GF stakeholders is active, open, and timely with all stakeholders. If possible and permissible under the ad hoc regulations of the Swiss stock exchange, employees are notified first.
The renewal of communication channels and content that was started with the launch of the Strategy 2025 was pursued further in 2022. The image film launched at the end of 2021 was used in an adapted form as a PR campaign. During the vacation months with high passenger numbers, the "Going forward" motto was displayed on around 100 screens at Zurich Airport. This film also received several awards, including the top prize at the German Business Film Awards in the category "Economy well presented".
Another highlight of 2022 was the launch of the new We@GF Intranet at the end of November. This new platform allows us to reach all employees, even those without direct PC access, in an uncomplicated way through a modern, user-friendly mobile app and thus to promote dialogue.
The "Globe" magazine has been redesigned in terms of its look and content, and provides employees with in-depth information about current topics within the company. On social media channels, our visibility has been expanded and GF created an Instagram account in fall 2022. The growing number of followers and interactions underscores our successful strategy of growing slowly but sustainably, and thus continuously increasing awareness among the various user groups.
The shares of Georg Fischer Ltd are listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange. GF is therefore subject to the requirements on ad hoc publicity stipulated in the listing rules and the directive on ad hoc publicity. This relates to the obligation to report any share price-sensitive facts. GF also maintains a dialogue with investors and journalists at events and roadshows.
Subscription to an e-mail service for GF news is free of charge. All media releases, Corporate Reports, and Mid-Year Reports as well as important publications go online at www.georgfischer.com at the same time as they are published. Shareholders receive the short version of the Corporate Reports and the Mid-Year Report, and other interested parties can order them.
