We believe that transparent and accurate reporting of operating and financial results, major business decisions and developments gives shareholders and investors the relevant inputs to their investment decisions; more importantly, it provides the basis for the sound, robust market valuation of our shares and proper view to all stakeholders of possible future losses or gains.
Our Investor Relations Unit (IRU), which is part of the Strategic and Corporate Planning Division is tasked with a program of proactive, uniform, appropriate and timely communication and reporting, in the spirit of full disclosure and in compliance with the Securities Regulation Code, and SEC and PSE rules, regulations and disclosure guidelines.
Apart from structured disclosures, the Bank, through the IRU, also discloses information not required under the disclosure rules if, in the Bank’s estimation, such matters will impact on investment decisions by interested parties. Such matters are disclosed as promptly and comprehensively as possible by appropriate methods.
In carrying out its structured and unstructured disclosures, the Bank also makes full use of the electronic facilities provided by the PSE’s Electronic Disclosure Generation Technology or PSE EDGE, a state-of-the-art, fully automated system that facilitates the efficient processing, validation, submission, distribution, and analysis of time-sensitive disclosure reports submitted to the Exchange. Information disclosed on PSE EDGE is also promptly disclosed to the SEC as required and via other media, including the Bank’s site and electronic mail to relevant, interested parties.
The IRU also conducts non-deal roadshows arranged by securities houses (one-on-one meetings in the office of the investors) and attends securities house-sponsored conferences in the Philippines and abroad (one-one meetings, small group meetings, workshops). The Bank also meets with banking analysts upon their request. These meetings are attended by senior management, ensuring accessibility of the financial and investor community.
The Investor Relations Unit also provides company presentations in the annual stockholders' meeting and works with the Corporate Communications group for media briefings and press releases.
