Billerud earns award for financial communication

Billerud has been selected as the Stock Market Company of the Year by Swedish business journal Aktiespararen and Kanton Finansiella Rådgivning, a team of financial consultants, for providing the best financial communication among companies listed in Sweden.

Billerud won with the following motivation: ”The Annual Report offers an exceptional summary of the company’s business areas via a structured presentation of products, end users, key driving forces and the capacity and position of the company. The content of the interim report is exemplary, with a focus on relevant seasonal effects and results per business area presented in accordance with the company’s transparent communication policy. The website, which was already good, has improved further over the past year. The company is unique in combining detailed financial information with a high level of visual finesse.” “It’s very satisfying for us at Billerud to win this award two years in a row. We see it as proof that good communication does not need to cost much and that openness and transparency are effective,” says Bertil Carlsén, Billerud’s Chief Financial Officer.
