Kuoni Travel Holding Ltd publishes a comprehensive Annual Report each year informing its shareholders about business developments and the companyʼs annual results. The Annual Report of 2015 is the first one to be published in an online version only. Of particular importance are the Corporate Governance Report integrated into the Annual Report and the Financial Report on the past business year. All of Kuoniʼs consolidated financial statements are compiled in compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

The reports on half-year results and the nine-month business update are published and distributed in the same way as the companyʼs media releases. These reports contain unaudited financial results which are compiled in compliance with IFRS guidelines.

Kuoni Travel Holding Ltd occasionally publishes information on current developments within its various business units or on other Group activities. In compliance with the relevant listing regulations of the SIX Swiss Exchange, these communications are always issued simultaneously to a broad circle of recipients.

An archive containing the companyʼs Annual Reports, half-year reports, nine-month business updates and further information and presentations is available on the website. Kuoni Travel Holding Ltd also maintains an archive of all its published ad-hoc disclosures and other communications on the website. All this information is publicly available. Interested parties may also register on the website to receive ad-hoc disclosures and other published communications by e-mail.

The information contained in these reports and communications is considered correct at the time of its publication. Kuoni Travel Holding Ltd does not update media releases issued in the past in the light of subsequent market or business developments.

As part of its investor relations function, Kuoni Travel Holding Ltd organises:

  • the presentation of its annual results;
  • conference calls around the publication of its half-year results, the nine-month business update or other information;
  • meetings with investors and analysts, either individually or in groups at roadshows in key financial centres;
  • analystsʼ and investorsʼ events on specific topics or issues;
  • presentations at brokersʼ/banksʼ events.

These activities are conducted with a focus on recently announced developments or financial results, and in full compliance with SIX Exchange Regulationʼs Directive on ad-hoc publicity.

The presentations for financial analysts and investors are regularly archived on the Kuoni Group website. These presentations are not constantly updated, but document long-term developments within the company.
