'Slovenian Listed Companies Online' – Ljubljana Stock Exchange hosts a webcast in partnership with NLB d.d. and Wood & Co.
On Friday, 22 March 2019, the Ljubljana Stock Exchange, in partnership with NLB d.d. and the Czech investment company Wood & Co., hosted the first webinar of the year through the GoToWebinar platform.
Following positive feedback from market participants on such events in the past year, five of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange blue-chips decided to participate in this edition: Krka d.d., Novo mesto, Nova Ljubljanska banka d.d, Pozavarovalnica Sava, d.d., Petrol d.d., Ljubljana and Triglav Group.
Given the carefully coordinated date of the event, the topic discussed were the preliminary financial results for financial year 2018. Mr David Bratož, Member of the Management Board at Krka d.d. opened the webinar and presented Krka’s operations in 2018. Petrol d.d. followed as second with Mr Stebernak, Member of the Management Board and CFO, presenting the results of Petrol, d.d. in 2018. Presentation of 2018 results for Triglav Group was given by Ms Helena Ulaga Kitek, Head of IR, and for Pozavarovalnica Sava d.d. by Ms Polona Pirš Zupančič, Member of the Management Board. The webinar’s final presentation was given by Mr Blaž Brodnjak, President of the Management Board, who gave an overview of NLB d.d.’s results for 2018.
Judging by the number of registered investors, the event was a definite success, as 74 investors, among them 51 international, participated. The investors came from 19 countries, i.e. Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Lithuania, Estonia, Hungary, India, Italy, Luxemburg, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Slovakia, Sweden, Poland, Great Britain, United States of America and of course Slovenia.
In three hours five comprehensive presentations were given, supported by Q&A sections where a plethora of interesting and insightful questions were asked, which indicates that Slovenian listed companies are well-known internationally and are interesting to international investors. This event is just one out of many that pursue goals and activities of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange and are organised with the intention of increasing the visibility and exposure of the Slovenian capital market.
The composition and active participation of investors implies high interest of investors in such events, nationally and globally. With this in mind, the Ljubljana Stock Exchange will organise one more webinar this year, which will be at the beginning of September and will cover the companies’ results in the first half of the year 2019. Until then, the companies will present their operations and strategies on two investor conferences organised by the Ljubljana and Zagreb Stock Exchanges:
- 8 April 2019 – Slovenian and Croatian Investor Day in New York, and
- 30 and 31 May 2019 – Slovenian and Croatian Investor Days in Zagreb.
