A commitment to dialogue
The Board maintains a dialogue with shareholders directed towards ensuring a mutual understanding of objectives.
The Board is committed to open and transparent dialogue with shareholders. The Senior Independent Director and other Non-Executive Directors are available to meet with major shareholders on request. The Annual General Meeting is an opportunity for further shareholder engagement and for the Chairman to explain the Company’s progress and, with other members of the Board, to answer any questions.
A full programme of engagement with identified priority investors and analysts, both in the UK and overseas, is undertaken each year by the Head of Investor Relations. He is often accompanied by one or more Executive Directors and Management Board members.
The Company makes use of webcast technology for results presentations, available to all investors from the Investors section of this website.
Information about the Company is available on this website and British American Tobacco p.l.c. offers all its shareholders the opportunity to register to receive shareholder communications – such as the Annual Report, Notice of Meeting and related forms of proxy – electronically via the internet.
