9.1 Investor relations and documents available to the public
In addition to the General Meeting and the events organized to present the annual results, Edenred keeps both individual and institutional shareholders informed of the latest developments in a highly responsive manner. This information is tailored to the specific needs of different types of shareholders and financial analysts while constantly complying with the principle of equal access to information.
Edenred maintains an open dialogue with its institutional shareholders ahead of the General Meeting in order to identify their governance concerns as well as changes in their voting policies regarding the Group’s proposed resolutions.
The Company’s press releases and historical financial information are available on the Edenred website (www.edenred.com in the “Investors/Shareholders” section) and the website of the French financial markets authority (Autorité des marchés financiers – AMF – www.amf-france.org). Copies may also be obtained from the Company’s registered office, 14-16, boulevard Garibaldi – 92130 Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.
The bylaws and the minutes of General Meetings, the financial statements of the Company and the Group, the Statutory Auditors’ Reports and all other corporate documents are available for consultation in paper format at the Company’s registered office. This information is also available in the “Investors/Shareholders” section of edenred.com on the “Governance” and “Annual General Meeting”.
9.1.1 Meetings with investors
In 2021, Edenred met 1,352 representatives of 412 financial institutions, held 20 roadshows and participated in 16 investor conferences. All these events took place virtually due to ongoing public health concerns. As in the prior year, the virtual format made it easier for investors to take part, meaning a similar number of institutions and representatives were reached as in 2020.
A webinar with the Executive Vice-President, Finance and two in-person meetings with individual shareholders were also held.
