The award for Sweden’s best annual report was presented for the 52nd time in succession by a group consisting of FAR, Nasdaq, Swedish Communication Association and the Swedish Society of Financial Analysts (SFF). The jury had read through 264 annual reports from Swedish companies listed on Nasdaq Stockholm.
The jury’s motivation ran as follows:
”The annual report is to all intents and purposes complete.
The jury was impressed by Boliden’s annual report which uses ”modern and clear language”, thereby succeeding in reaching a broader target group where non-specialists can understand the earnings model thanks to the pedagogic illustrations. The graphics, headings and tables also appealed to the jury. Objectives, fulfilment of those objectives, risks and sensitivity analyses are also set out clearly in the report in an exemplary fashion. The jury felt that the only slight shortcoming was the boundary between the introduction and the administration report.”
A delighted Sophie Arnius, Head of Investor Relations at Boliden, comments:
“Fabulous, there are a lot of us involved and we have put a lot of hours into the project. Boliden has a complex operation and we wanted to explain it and our business model in a pedagogical way.”
Narva also contributed to the production of Humana’s annual report for 2016, which was nominated in the Mid Cap category.
The prize for Best Sustainability Report for 2016 was also presented on the same day at Aktuell Hållbarhet’s conference. One of the entries nominated was Husqvarna’s sustainability report, another of the reports Narva produced during the past year.
