TAURON awarded in “The Best Annual Report 2012” competition

TAURON Polska Energia has been awarded the second main prize for the annual report of the TAURON Group for the year 2012 in “The Best Annual Report 2012” competition. In addition, the company also received two honorable mentions: for the use value of the annual report and for the best report on the operations of the company.    

The gala was organized by the Institute of Accounting and Taxes and held on 18 October in the trading room at the Warsaw Stock Exchange.

- We are very pleased to receive these awards. They prove that our actions aimed at the best possible communication with shareholders and other stakeholders of the company, which have been our priority since our flotation on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, are carried out correctly - Dariusz Lubera, CEO of TAURON Polska Energia commented on the results of the competition.

Two years ago, TAURON Polska Energia received an honorable mention in the competition “The Best Annual Report 2010” for application of IFRS/IRS, and last year - for the use value of the annual report for the year 2011.

- We have been a listed company for three years now, it has been the third time we participated in the competition, we have been awarded for the third time and this year we received as much as three awards. This is an effect of works of teams in the TAURON Group, who are involved in preparation of periodic reports – said Krzysztof Zawadzki, CFO of TAURON Polska Energia upon receipt of the award.

The underlying objective of the competition “The Best Annual Report” is to establish recognized standards for development of annual reports in accordance with IFRS/ IRS, in line with the best practices in this scope, and at the same time to promote companies which prepare the best consolidated annual reports from the perspective of the use value for shareholders and investors.

- Last year TAURON was awarded for the greatest headway in the category “Best use value of annual report”. This time the jury stressed the remarkable clarity of the report, respect towards shareholders and adequate proportions - said Krzysztof Grabowski, the head of the jury evaluating the use value of the annual report, during the gala.

The honorary patrons of the competition included the Ministry of State Treasury, Polish Financial Supervisory Authority and Issuers’ Association. In the jury there are representatives of audit and consulting firms, financial institutions, capital market organizations and media.
