IR activities in 2018

Last year, Valmet interacted with approximately 370 investors in ca. 240 events and was on roadshow for 30 days in 14 different countries. Our aim is to continue with the same level of activity in 2019. See our latest Roadshow presentation here.

In March, Valmet organized a site visit for institutional investors and analysts to the Board and Paper business unit in Jyväskylä, Finland. Video of the site visit and the presentation material are available on our website.

Valmet hosted a Capital Markets Day on September 18, 2018 in Helsinki. The day focused on Valmet’s strategy execution and business outlook. A webcast recording of the presentations and the presentation material are available at the CMD website.

As a kick-off to the CMD, the IR team made videos of each business line president introducing the core facts of their business. Watch all four videos in our IR Video gallery. If you would like to further freshen up your knowledge of Valmet, listen to the audiocast recording about Valmet as an investment.

Valmet maintained its position among the world’s sustainability leaders and was included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for the fifth consecutive year. Valmet is listed both in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe indices.

During the year, Valmet received recognition for investor communication. In November, Valmet’s IR won the awards for ‘Best overall communication of company investment proposition’ and 'Best use of digital communication' at the IR Society Best Practice Awards 2018.
