Interface to the markets
CEO, CFO and IR Manager are the sole points of contact to the investor community.
Code of Conduct in investor meetings
F-Secure has a silent period of 3 weeks before the quarterly announcements. In the investor meetings, F-Secure discusses only publicly disclosed information made available (quarterly announcements and other public information, eg. industry information and product releases). F-Secure follows the principle that all investors are treated equally.
F-Secure’s Investor messages (IR presentation) are updated on a quarterly basis and are available on the Group’s web pages. The presentation sets the agenda and content for investor meetings.
F-Secure does not comment on analysts’ views on the Company. However, individual analyst and consensus forecasts are constantly followed up.
Exceptional situations, rumors or leakages of information
F-Secure closely follows its own operations and the market situation. If exceptional situations occur, immediate reaction is taken. This includes changes in the communicated forward-looking view or other events that can have a significant impact on the market value. Whenever deemed necessary a statement is to be sent to the markets before the opening of the next day’s market (at the latest). If there are rumors or leakages of information, F-Secure considers if publishing of information is needed by a stock exchange release.
