Autogrill on the financial markets

Autogrill’s interest in establishing a continuous dialogue with all its shareholders, institutional investors and financial analysts led in 1997 to the creation of an Investor Relations department. Equipped with the appropriate means and professionalism, the department works to guidelines provided by the Company’s management. The department punctually communicates business performance and significant events, conducts regular meetings and phone calls with analysts and investors, and publishes both mandatory and additional documents to give a full explanation of the Group’s strategic and operational choices. Information of importance to shareholders is published in the “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s web site (www.autogrill.com). The Investor Relations Manager is Elisabetta Cugnasca.

In 2009, Investor Relations activities included:

  • 204 meetings with investors (one to one or conference call);
  • 13 road-shows;
  • participation in three industry conferences organized by brokers/finance houses;
  • one analysts meeting on publication of the 2008 annual financial report;
  • three conference calls on publication of the 1st and 3rd quarter and 1st half financial reports.
