Communication with the shareholders

Dialog with the shareholders is important for Volvo. In addition to the Annual General Meeting and a number of larger activities aimed at professional investors, private shareholders and stock market analysts, the relationship between Volvo and the stock market is maintained through such events as press and telephone conferences in conjunction with the publication of interim reports, meetings with retail shareholders' associations, investor meetings and visits, as well as road shows in Europe, the U.S. and Asia. During 2010 a number of large events were held:
  • An investor day in Shanghai in May in cooperation with five other Swedish capital goods companies. On the agenda was a visit to Volvo Construction Equipment's production facilities among other topics.
  • In June, the annual capital markets day was held in Skövde, Sweden with a tour of the Group's foundry and engine manufacturing.
  • An investor day in Curitiba, Brazil was held in September. It included a factory tour and presentations of the business and strategy in South America.
  • An investor day in New York City in November contained a presentation of the Group strategy and in-depth information on the North American market.
