Information Policy and Key Reporting Dates

Lonza pursues a proactive and professional communication policy. Lonza publishes price-sensitive information in accordance with the obligation to disclose price-sensitive facts as required by the SIX Swiss Exchange. Ad hoc notices are made available on its news site. Lonza’s website also provides a news and subscription service that allows interested parties to receive, via e-mail distribution, free and timely notification of price-sensitive facts.

Corporate Communications reports directly to the Chief Human Resources Officer, while Investor Relations reports to the Chief Financial Officer. On basic matters of general corporate policy, Corporate Communications receives its directives from the Executive Committee. Lonza makes the Annual Report, the Half-Year Results and Full-Year Results available to all interested parties as a PDF download. The invitation to the Annual General Meeting is published on Lonza’s website and in the Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce. It is also sent by mail to the shareholders entered in the share register.

Lonza’s website is regularly updated and provides relevant information such as share-price development, news releases and presentations. Media conferences and analyst meetings generally take place at Lonza’s headquarters or by conference call. Lonza manages an annual program of investor meetings. Shareholders, potential investors and financial analysts are also welcomed at Lonza’s headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.
