Shareholder and investor engagement

Magnit is committed to strengthening its investment case, so we are constantly seeking ways to increase the openness and transparency of our activities. The Company looks to attract new and retain existing investors by maintaining a constant dialogue with the investment community and paying equal attention to all investor categories.

We use various engagement formats, including distributing press releases announcing operational and financial results; organising conference calls and face-to-face and virtual meetings; conducting road shows and site visits; and participating in investment conferences and other events.

On 17 February 2022, Magnit held its Capital Markets Day, reporting, in particular, on the accomplishment of its 2021 strategic commitments and progress of implementing its strategy until 2025.

The Company improved its information disclosure and transparency, including through changes to the corporate website:

  • the section featuring the Company’s reports was upgraded, with reports now grouped by type and available to be filtered by year, which makes user search quicker and more efficient;
  • the Business Model section was updated and infographics improved to give users a better understanding of the Company’s stakeholder engagement;
  • a new Private Investors section was added, featuring the Company’s operational and financial highlights over the past few years, aspects of its equity story, helpful and informative materials, and a FAQ page;
  • Our Strategy, Investment Case, and Capital Markets Day sections were updated.
