Workspace believes engagement with shareholders is all important. The Company has a comprehensive investor relations programme, maintaining regular dialogue with its investors, including major institutions and private client fund managers.
Throughout the year, meetings are arranged, both proactively and on request, for the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Head of Corporate Communications with institutional shareholders and sell-side analysts to discuss the Company’s business model, strategy and marketplace, as well as update on performance. These meetings often include site visits which provide shareholders with valuable insight into the business.
Digital communication is increasingly used as a means of keeping in touch with shareholders. The investor website is kept up-to-date with RNS announcements, share price performance and information on Workspace’s ‘Doing the Right Thing’ strategy, while Company presentations are also available both on the website and, where appropriate, via a webcast. The Company also engages with
shareholders at the Annual General Meeting and at an annual Capital Markets Day, as well as attending several external investor conferences.
The Board receives reports of meetings with institutional shareholders together with regular market and brokers’ reports which give the Directors clear understanding of shareholders views and concerns.
The Chairman is also available to meet with shareholders, independently of the Executive Directors, as required.
The Annual Report and Accounts is sent to all shareholders who wish to receive a copy. It is also available in the investor section of the website www.workspace.co.uk/investors.
