Wesfarmers recognises the importance of providing its shareholders and the broader investment community with facilities to access up-to-date, high-quality information, participate in shareholder decisions of the company and provide avenues for two-way communication between the company, the Board and shareholders.
Wesfarmers has developed an investor engagement program for engaging with shareholders, debt investors, the media and the broader investment community. In addition, the company’s shareholders have the ability to elect to receive communications and other shareholding information electronically.
Wesfarmers takes its continuous disclosure responsibilities seriously and has a detailed Market Disclosure Policy in place, a copy of which is available on the company’s website at www.wesfarmers.com.au/cg. The company also has processes in place to ensure that the Board receives copies of all material market announcements made pursuant to its continuous disclosure obligations promptly after those have been made.
When Wesfarmers holds a new and substantive investor or analyst presentation, it releases a copy of the presentation materials to the ASX ahead of the presentation.
