Maintaining positive relations with our investors is key to Gemalto’s growth. The confidence and loyalty of private and institutional shareholders are essential to our successful long-term development. Gemalto’s investor relations policy is aimed at informing shareholders in a timely and detailed way about developments that are relevant to Gemalto in order to provide a faithful and clear picture of investment decisions involving Gemalto. Price sensitive information is disseminated without delay through press releases and web site updates.

In addition to the AGMs, Gemalto has implemented a wide variety of communication tools to keep investors informed on a regular basis. These include the annual reports, legal announcements, press releases and financial statements.

At the publication of interim and annual financial statements, Gemalto holds conference calls or investor meetings.
