Annual Report Magazine FY 2015

AUSTRIAN POST ANNUAL REPORT 2015 79 EMPHASIS ON TRANSPARENCY Austrian Post attaches considerable importance to active communica- tions with investors and analysts. More than 140 meetings were held in 2015 with representatives of the financial community in Austria and in international financial centres such as London, Paris, Frankfurt, War- saw, New York, Los Angeles and Toronto. COMMUNICATION WITH PRIVATE SHAREHOLDERS Private investors also made use of Austrian Post’s offer to establish a comprehensive two-way dialogue. Numerous private shareholders informed themselves about the company, for example at the GE- WINN trade fair in Vienna. In order to provide information to school pupils, potential future employees and shareholders, Austrian Post was again represented also at the GEWINN InfoDay for pupils. SUSTAINABLE INVESTMENT Austrian Post’s renewed accept- ance for listing on the Austrian sustainability index VÖNIX of the Vienna Stock Exchange for 2015/16 confirms the sustainable manner in which the company operates from a capital market perspective. Austrian Post also scored top marks interna- tionally in the oekom Research as- sessment, which particularly praised the company’s environmental and climate protection objectives and measures. Moreover, the disclosure scoring in the Carbon Disclosure Project improved from 91B to 99B. 2015201120102009 2012 2013 2014 1.70 1.60 1.50 1.80 1.90 1.95 1.951 2014 2015 Change 2014/2015 Earnings per share1 EUR 2.17 1.06 –51.2% Dividends per share EUR 1.95 1.952 – Dividend payout EUR m 131.7 131.72 – Free cash flow per share (before acquisitions/securities) EUR 2.25 2.64 17.5% Dividend yield3 % 4.8% 5.8% – Total shareholder return (annual performance + dividends)4 % +21.6% –11.9% – Total shareholder return since the IPO % +188.3% +163.1% – Share price performance % +16.1% –16.7% – PE (price/earnings) ratio at the end of December – 18.6 31.7 70.4% Share price at the end of December EUR 40.38 33.63 –16.7% High/low (closing price) EUR 40.51/33.40 46.99/29.70 – Market capitalisation at the end of December EUR m 2,727.8 2,271.8 –16.7% Shares in circulation at the end of December Shares 67,552,638 67,552,638 – Free float % 47.2% 47.2% – SHARE AND DIVIDEND INDICATORS 1 Undiluted earnings per share in relation to 67,552,638 shares 2 Proposal to the Annual General Meeting on April 14, 2016 3 Dividends per share divided by the share price at year-end of the respective financial year 4 Change in the share price year-on-year plus dividend payment in the respective year (excluding reinvestment of the dividends) 1 Proposal to the Annual General Meeting on April 14, 2016 DIVIDENDS PER SHARE EUR AUSTRIAN POST ANNUAL REPORT 201579 2015201120102009201220132014 20142015 Change EUR 2.171.06 –51.2% Dividends per share EUR 1.951.952 Dividend payout EUR m 131.7131.72 Free cash flow per share (before acquisitions/securities) EUR 2.252.6417.5% PE (price/earnings) ratio at the end of December – 18.631.770.4% Share price at the end of December EUR 40.3833.63 –16.7% High/low (closing price) EUR 40.51/33.4046.99/29.70 – Market capitalisation at the end of December EUR m 2,727.82,271.8 –16.7% Shares in circulation at the end of December Shares 67,552,63867,552,638 –
