INVESTOR INFORMATION

Important Information on the Share, Bonds and Financial Calendar

graphic

In 2019, the BKW share movement was slightly positive. The share increase of + 4 % in the 2019 financial year fell short of the SPI (+ 30 %), despite the highly positive results that BKW presented. The strong 2018 results were communicated in March, and the outstanding results for the half-year 2019 in September. Both sets of results exceeded market expectations and led to positive share price reaction. In particular, the 2019 half-year results managed to significantly exceed market expectations in a challenging business environment. At the same time, BKW increased its outlook for the 2019 financial year. On the day of publication, this led to a striking share price increase of + 17 %. The BKW share closed the year at CHF 71.40 (+ CHF 2.70).

The shares of BKW AG are listed on the main segment of the SIX Swiss Exchange.
